Crop tops are much more versatile than you thought, you don’t even have to invest in high-waisted bottoms: take a hint from Miranda Kerr, pull out your trusty boyfriend jeans and be-loved track pants, both help tone down its sexyness, eradicate what deters us the most from testing this hot crop top trend. For accessories, an elevated espadrille and timeless satchel add sophistication to a dark palette while a playful printed duffle and on-trend Birkenstock echo the youthful spirit of the white/blue combo seen on Miranda Kerr (above right). When all else fails, you can still wear them like any other tank tops, with this trick demonstrated by another style savvy Olivia Palermo.

In Chinese: 今年大热的超短款上衣其实很好搭,你甚至不需要另外再投资高腰裤,向米兰达·可儿(Miranda Kerr)学学这两招吧:把露脐装配上松垮的男友风牛仔裤或者酷帅的运动裤,中和这种小上衣的性感。配饰的选择上:她的“升级版”草编鞋和经典的大包为休闲感的造型加入了典雅简约的都市风,是对奢华运动的另一种诠释。对于清爽的白色无袖针织衫破洞牛仔裤的组合,她则用豹纹大包和流行又极舒适的博肯鞋来呼应整体年轻和不羁的感觉。当然,如果你还是对露出小蛮腰有所保留,那别忘了试试来自另一个街拍偶像奥利维亚·巴勒莫 (Olivia Palermo)的这个造型

In this part of our “Back to Basics” series, I want to share with you some unexpected ways to style other two timeless white pieces: plain white jumper and sweatshirt. As you can see from above, these looks have a gamine & tomboy vibe that has been spotted on the runway this season. Back in 1992, this type of style inspired by the cool kids on the street made Mac Jacobs lose his job at Perry Ellis. Now it becomes an inspiration for major designers and a trend that attracts the fashion cognoscenti.

Alessandra Ambrosio and Rihanna’s looks above also incorporated two microtrends this season: overalls and baseball cap. Alessandra Ambrosio opted for a cropped version with her white knit which is also in right now. The nice fit, rolled up hems and light wash color polished up her dundarees. A trendy sunglasses and bright oversized tote give her look an urban touch.

A pure white slouchy sweatshirt can be challenging. Rihanna’s look (above right) is my favorite so far. An outfit with boyish shirt, sneakers and baseball cap are sportif, however, with a fitted mini skirt, tied-around-the-waist chambray shirt, gold accessories, preppy glasses and a sober tote, she kept the overall look polished and stylish.
