AJ Wears :: A Printed Crop

I read an awesome article the other day about crop tops for every body type. I know everyone automatically thinks crop tops might not be for them (the name alone is somewhat panic inducing!), but there are a few creative ways to work them into your wardrobe without showing a band of skin. One of my favorite ways to make a crop appropriate for work is with a high-waisted skirt or pair of pants; It's a little breezier than tucking in a top, and can give a more modern feel to a classic silhouette. 

Top, Forever 21 (exact).
Skirt, Kenneth Cole (similar from JCP).
Bag, 3.1 Phillip Lim.
Heels, Saint Laurent (get the look for less with chain shoe clips!).
Necklace, Forever 21 (similar with fringe from XXI).
