Following our 12 Ways To Wear The Crop Top Trend For Spring post it felt natural to showcase some of our favourite crop tops available online right now! However, it just so happens that our favourite crop tops were also part of matching two-piece sets... oh yes how we love a good co-ord! The best thing with co-ords is that they are so versatile, you can either wear the two pieces together or split them up into different outfits. We do apologize that our picks tend to have gravitated towards the tropical/botanical trend -- which is easily our favourite trend for Spring/Summer!

If you want some ideas on how to style the crop top half, do check out our crop top street style post!

12 Ways To Wear The Crop Top Trend For Spring

Top Fashion Blog: How To Wear The Crop Top Trend Spring 2014

Crop tops may initially seem like a scary trend, especially for those who are body conscious. However, we have found them to be incredibly flattering if worn in the right way! If you choose the right lenght crop then you will find they are easier to pull off, especially when you play with the proportions. Pair your crop with high-waisted bottoms to minimize skin exposure and keep the trend chic and sophisticated. If you the choose lengths carefully then you can even choose not to expose any skin at all if you prefer not too!

Opting for a pencil skirt paired with a crop is a great option to make the look more conservative. Also you don't have to choose a tight fitting crop, choosing one with a boxy fit can help you feel more comfortable. The crop top will draw the eye to your smallest part (your waist!) and will thus make you look slimmer and if you still feel a bit exposed, spring is the perfect time to embrace this trend as you can layer with a lightweight jacket or opt for a cropped knit jumper.

1FINEDAI is a personal style blog by Visa Lom who is a California based blogger! We are a massive fan of her monochromatic looks as we are so inspired by how she can take simple pieces and create chic and edgy looks from them without needing to overdo colour or print. The key to this style is choosing pieces that may seem pretty simple, but actually have unique cuts and are made of quality materials. Also don't forget to make the most of your accessories, a wide brimmed fedora and edgy pair of sunglasses always finish the look nicely!

One reason we love Spring is that it's time for lighter and loose layers. Instead of having to hide away under heavy winter coats, we can sport classic pieces such as the trench coat. This timeless piece has been around for several years and loved by many due to it's versatility and sophisticated look. The trench coat can be paired with almost any kind of look. So whether you opt for classic beige or something printed, the classic trench will always be incredibly chic and sleek.

One Top, Two Ways

GREY JERSEY SLEEVELESS SWEATER WITH STRIPE RIB TRIM LAVISH ALICE

We love both these looks which are similar in their monochromatic colour theme, but different in their styles. Amy's has smartened up the top with a relaxed fit, longline blazer, boots and skinny jeans (left). Megan on the the other hand has followed through with the athletic theme sporting trainers, jogger style trousers and a baseball cap. However, to stop her outfit looking too "gym", Megan's chosen materials and trench coat add some sophistication (right). We love both looks for their aesthetic appeal. How about you?

Ways To Wear Pastel Blue With Black

The icy shade of pastel blue has been worn all Winter, is perfect for Spring and we can see it lasting us into the Summer too...that is how crazy we are for this powder blue hue! However until Summer finally arrives, our favourite way to wear it in these cooler months is with black. The harshness of the black contrasts effectively with the femininity of this pastel shade. This contrast is crucial for when you want to create edgy and chic looks. Whether you choose prints or blocks of black, teaming pastel blue with black is a look we think you should definitely try out!
