I've done it. I've accepted crop tops into my life. I wore this outfit last Saturday to LAB451 at Camden Image Gallery - a cool evening of performance art and fun. My synthpop duo, Rescue A Family, performed about half way through (you can watch our entire performance here).
What I love about this top is its subtle deep red colour, and the little turtleneck (a smart detail that isn't overly intrusive). It's quite a simple top so I paired it with daisy print leggings and black brogues, with a cheeky turn up and very delicately floral socks. This brought in a nice smartness, meaning that my bellybutton was immediately ready for a business meeting.
