As regular readers will know, the idea of crop tops have always scared me a little as I've never been completely confident with my stomach. However, after working hard in the gym for the past month or so, and changing my diet so that I've more or less completely cut out the junk, I'm starting to get my confidence back and have seen a change in the way my body looks. So when Karma Clothing asked if I'd like to pick an item from their current collection, the dare devil inside me instantly selected a gorgeous two piece, complete with crop top and bodycon skirt - two of my previous fashion fears.
Denim Jacket - Primark (old)
Rucksack - Primark
Rings - Primark & H&M
A two piece like this is generally something that I would dress up but seeing as I didn't have an occasion at the moment to wear it to, I decided to put a casual spin on the outfit and teamed it with my trusty old Primark denim jacket and well loved Converse. I think these helped to tone down the print which is very loud and summery, and since the weather has take a turn for the worse, I thought this was a good move. The print is a little out of my comfort zone, as I don't normally go for things quite this bright, but with a holiday in the sun looming in a few weeks time, I figured this would be the perfect pairing for a summer evening abroad, and what's more, each piece can be mixed and matched with other items. The crop top would look gorgeous teamed with high waisted denim shorts during the day, and the skirt would be perfect worn with a simple black bandeau and black heels for a classic evening look.
Have you got yourself a two piece yet? How would you style the one I got?
