Yes, this trend is inherently sexy and will veer on the side of flirtatious no matter what, but there are ways to go about it that will help you look more retro pinup than '80s video vixen. Wear your crop top with a high-waisted skirt or shorts, and layer it up with a fitted blazer, sweet cardigan, or cool leather jacket. This will ensure that you keep things classy while staying on the sultry side of things. This sweet, slightly innocent look is perfect for daytime — pair your long-sleeved crop top with a pair of high-waisted floral shorts, then add some shine with metallic pointed-toe heels. Add tortoiseshell shades and a cute crossbody bag in a contrasting color, and what do you know? You're now successfully pulling off a crop top.
