FASHION | THE CROP TOP ISSUE


I have recently been asked by Mallzee to be guest editor for their blog, hence I decided to write about my current fashion obsession: the oh-so-trendy crop tops! Visit Mallzees fabulous blog here and learn more about the app here!

Showing off your bare midriff has been frowned upon for almost two decades. The last time crop tops were en vogue was in the glorious 1990ies. The cropping trend however has been sneaking back into fashion in the last few months and I must admit that I am more than excited! To me, everything cropped (tops and trousers in particular) make a chic and stylish fashion statement.

Crop tops are the perfect alternative to show of some skin without showing too much cleavage or wearing a miniskirt. Here I show you my favourite outfit combinations: minimalistic, chic, sporty and elegant.

I can't wait for the warmer spring days until I am able to throw on some crop tops without risking hypothermia. My go-to high street shops for finding the most stylish, inexpensive crop tops are definitely Zara and Topshop and I like to go to H&M to find high waisted pants and skirts that make the combination perfect. The Mallzee app can help you find your perfect crop top too!

PS: my secrets to keep my tummy and waist in shape are two sessions of Pilates a week. For more fashion updates and inspirations you can follow me on Instagram too.

NEW IN | & OTHER STORIES FURRY ANKLE BOOTS

Ankle boots - & other Stories

I like black ankle boots and I cannot lie... Black shoes with a twist give any outfit a perfect finish in my opinion. I spotted these booties online on & other Stories' webshop quite a while ago and had a girlfriend of mine, who was travelling to Paris pick them up for me at the store. And they are oh-so-pretty! The perfect elegant yet edgy winter booties I cannot get enough of.

PHOTO DIARY | JANUARY

Follow me on Instagram!

This January was a wonderful month, with little rain but loads of sunshine and no snow whatsoever. I can feel thought that the weather is getting colder as we speak. Therefore I'm layering up in the most stylish way possible and black, white and nude are as always the dominant shades in my wardrobe. Keep an eye on the blog as I going to tell soon on what amazing item I scored on sale at Mulberry.
