Could you do the cropped top at a certain age? After some careful consideration (and discussion with my 20 year old daughter…) I’ve decided that I can!
I’ve being scouting (and debating…) the cropped striped top since last summer, so you can understand it’s been a long and slow process… Well during week I actually found a T-shirt that could fit my purposes, however still not cropped. So I decided to go about it myself and do some cropping. No Einstein needed here, cutting and hemming is all it takes. Just be careful with the proportions and how high you want the crop to be to fit your figure.
I’m planning to style it with my high-waisted black skirt and pants when wearing it for the office. (Here I’m off duty in my skinny jeans working on the cropping and taking pictures.)
See the difference in style and proportions with the crop and without, where the slightly longer style (approximately 2,5 inches/8 cm shorter) makes the waist disappear.
