Hidden Stripes :: Cropped top & Lace-up pumps

Happy Monday everyone!

Hidden Stripes-3

This cropped top is one of my closet favorites.  It actually comes with a tank underneath, which I think is such a great way to style cropped tops.  The tank can be worn tucked in skirts (for example here), worn over pants or shorts (as seen in this blog post), or completely removed to show a sliver of skin (will style this way in a future post =).  Nowadays, whenever I want to give my cropped tops a different look, I pair them with a silky tank underneath to see the various styling options.

A mix of femininity and edginess.  The pointy toe box and lace-up details add elements of softness while the cut-outs and studs summon feelings of strength and gladiator-like toughness.
