Would You Wear… a Matching Crop Top and Skirt?

If your friends would describe your sense of style as “matchy-matchy,” then this hot new trend should find a place in your summer wardrobe. Wearing a matching crop top and skirt set makes for the ultimate statement outfit. Need proof? Loads of A-listers of all styles and sizes have been testing out this trend!

Many of us may feel uncomfortable wearing crop tops, but when paired with a high-waisted skirt, it will show just a sliver of skin. (Just like the ones Mindy and Kim are rocking above!)

Of course, as college students, we do have to take into consideration where we are baring our skin. This look won’t fly for finals week on most campuses, but would look stylish for a dinner date or a night on the town.

The best part of this trend is the versatility. Nobody says you have to always wear them with their matching counterpart, so if you decide to invest, you could get at least three outfits out of one set. Talk about bang for your buck!

Some budget-conscious crop top and skirt sets…

    You can also wear a wide belt and have the look of a dress

    I’ve wanted to try this for a while! I love the fact that it shows just a smidge of midriff.

    I like Barbara’s idea of belting it so it can be dress. Anybody know where to get affordable options?

    I have an african inspired set from Forever21 and am obsessed with it. 21, JCPenney, Express, and Arden B all have something to offer with either slinky midi length pencil skirt sets or mini circle skirts.

    I know in the past couple of days I saw some of these in plus sizes somewhere, but I just can’t remember where! Anyone know? Super cute options and trend, though!

    I think this is really cute. To me it just looks like a dress with cutouts, but the cutouts go all the way around the waist!

    The TC waist cinching shaper is a must to get the dramatic petit waist that I love about this look alá Kiera Knightly & Rihanna in their Chanel ensembles. MinkPink has a to die for crop with matching pencil skirt outfit.
