As the fashion world bid farewell to summer and stowed away their midriff-baring tops in anticipation of the cold weather, a minority of fashion bloggers decided to put their foot down – by hook or by crook, the crop tops will make it through winter. And by Jove, do these young ladies know how to make a rebellious statement.
Below are five amusing ladies who refused to take no crop tops in winter for an answer, handpicked to give you a fresh perspective on dressing up for below zero temperature.
Just be careful not to catch a cold, ladies.
1. Ana Flashes Washboard Abs
And why not? We love the fresh youthful take on an otherwise quite grown up look (beanie is a plus, too). Pretty invigorating.
