Crop Top: Ladylike Layering

After showing off this fun, hippie chic crop top look last week, I’m back today to give you another style idea for this purplemaroon crop top.

Flowy maxi skirts are always fun, but sometimes you need a little more structure in your life – Enter ladylike layering!

What I liked about this ladylike layering technique is that not only are you creating a fresh new style unique to you, but you’re giving your clothes more street time because you can wear them in so many chic different ways.

I wore this strapless Asos checkered dress last year in a completely different way, so it’s fun to wear it again! Check out Checkered Dress Part I and Part II to see how easy it is to mix and match.

Crop Top: Boho Chic

A fabulous San Francisco brand that I’m excited to have discovered this year is purplemaroon. If that name sounds familiar you may be remembering the chic little backless dress that I wore during my Spring vacation in Greece earlier this year.

I’m excited to be teaming up with purplemaroon to bring you not only some fun new crop top styling ideas, but a killer giveaway that you’re going to be dying to enter!

So for my first crop top styling experience I went with flowy, hippie chic. I love maxi skirts so I pulled this Express jersey maxi out of my closet to put together a black-on-black-on-black look.

With some layered gold jewelry to break things up mais bien sur!

And before you ask – No, I do not know why my hand is on my head in every single picture. Maybe it was especially windy that day?

Yes, let’s go with that.

San Francisco Fashion: Nighttime CCUOCO Crop Top

It’s been an honor to work with the CCUOCO team this year and after some fun photo shoots, an outstanding trip to London Fashion Week, and making some amazing friends, I’m excited to share the last look from the MCLV x CCUOCO 2014 Lookbook!

After showing off a fun way to put together a daytime crop top look, here’s the nighttime incarnation for the lady who wants to have a little fun once the sun goes down.

Black and white is a classic combination and I loved how pairing this fierce lace-up crop top with a chic white coat was the perfect high-low mix. And off course, a look wouldn’t be complete without a bold accessory in the form of a colorful Rebecca Minkoff crossbody bag.

The CCUOCO Spring/Summer 2014 collection includes a few different crop tops – From a halter to a fun lace-up version like the one pictured above. And crop tops are everywhere this time of year, but the question is, how do you make them street style appropriate?

Even if you have a killer bod and are comfortable showing it off, most daytime situations don’t call for that much exposed skin. By adding a simple blouse or tee under the crop top you can still put together a fun, eye-catching look, but the overall style is more day-to-day appropriate.
