With the temps now soaring in to the 60s and 70s on the regular, here at Bullet Blues we’re dreaming of capital-s Summer – the lazy days on the beach with a book and our favorite sunnies; the sunny Sunday brunches sipping iced coffee while dining al fresco in our favorite local cafes; the raucous outdoor concerts and festivals with our squad of closest friends. Summer adventures call for an equally summery wardrobe, and there’s something so perfect about the crop top that makes it one of our go-to pieces when the sun is shining and the weekend is calling. No matter what kind of Bullet Blues girl you are, the crop top is the perfect compliment this summer to you favorite pair of American Made Bullet Blues designer denim! Read on to learn how to style your crop top.
The Boxy Floral Crop Top
Bearing those abs you worked hard for all spring is an easy way to add a dose of youth and fun to your look, but adding a few fun extras, like a bright floral backpack, and mixed prints, add an extra youthful punch to a sophisticated monochromatic outfit.
Start with your boxy crop top, like this black and white top with a polished peony print, then add a pair of light skinny jeans – Bullet Blues Fox Ciel Blue Sky Skinny Jeans are perf for this. Then add your bright floral backpack as a fun and hands-free alternative to a handbag. Finish the look with a pair of chunky black flatform sandals, a bright pink lipstick, and a black and white flannel tied around your waist for a look that’s cute and versatile for a day at the mall with your friends or day drinking on your porch.
The Crochet Halter Crop Top
For a sexy and laid-back look for a day at the beach or a music festival in your city, a crocheted halter crop top adds an instant dose of boho to any look. When paired with an ethnic print swimsuit and a pair of light wash flares, like Bullet Blues Sunday Ciel High-Rise Flare-Leg jean, you have a look that effortlessly evokes the 70s revival trend that’s so haute right now.
Finish the look with a few killer accessories, like a fringed, floral cognac beach bag, comfy cognac sandals, and stacks and stacks of boho jewelry like these long layered necklaces. For a last bit of beachy boho flair, spritz a sea salt spray into your hair for beach bunny waves, even if you’re nowhere near the sea.
The Denim Bustier Crop Top
For a summery update on the androgynous, borrowed-from-the-boys look that was everywhere this winter, swap out the ubiquitous statement tee for a sexy denim bustier, which gives this outfit a fresh boost of femininity. Throw on your trusty pair of Bullet Blues Chic Parisien Skinny Cigarette jeans, a breezy white blazer, and a pair of trendy white platform sandals for this polished and trendy look.
Finish the look with staple cool-girl beauty moves like a perfectly pinky-red pout and black nails For a final, personal touch, a cat-shaped handbag adds a bit of quirk to an otherwise prim look, making this the perfect look for a date at that cool brewery opening or a drive-in movie.
