A Lacey Perspective: Balance

As a fuller chested gal (may be an understatement) I have been very, very hesitant to give crop tops a try, but with this insane heatwave DC has been having I figured that now is my chance.

The best way for me to wear a crop top, and not feel overexposed or top heavy, is to wear it with a high-waisted, full skirt (last crop top worn here). Have you given crop tops a chance yet?

OK….now this is how I WANTED it to look when I wore a cropped top. But I spent a better part of the day feeling uncomfortable and tugging at my shirt so I guess this is one trend that doesn’t work for me. But I LOVE it on you. Very cute!

This might be one of my favorite looks ever! Crop tops + long skirts + black and white and amazing heels? LOVE IT!

I haven’t tried one yet. My concern is the opposite of you, worried about my bottom half. But, this looks so gorgeous on you! I might have to give it a try…

I was just thinking that I love your hair! I recently cut mine too. Chopped it off in fact. But I like your angled look. When I get my next trim I might try that!

I need to hop on this crop top trend, so cute on you!

Really loving your shorter hair Lacey!! I’m still on the fence with the crop top trend (esp. having a larger chest as well) but this look proves it can be so freakin chic!

Perfect pairing here! I prefer to not expose too much skin, even when wearing a crop talk. Your bob looks incredible– embrace it!

Lacey,

I have a series of questions for you (please excuse the scateer-brained list, I may have overserved myself on coffee today!):

1. Love the outfit. Wasn’t sure how to make crop top work for me, but this post has left me inspired!

2. What size did you go for in the crop top? I am also on the busty side and have never ordered from ASOS

3. What size did you go for in the skirt? Haven’t ordered from ASOS but am usually a size 6 in high-waisted skirts (like from WHBM).

Thanks and looking forward to giving this a try!

Hi Clarissa!

I typically wear a size 4 in dresses. In ASOS I wear a 6 (crop top included). They run small.

Hope this helps!

I have this same skirt from ASOS + wear it with an identical crop top. So fun to see you wearing the same look!

This is so stinkin’ cute! Love how it’s a cropped top, but somehow it all balances and not too revealing either. Love.
