Have you seen our limited edition crop tops floating around social media? We haven’t had much of an opportunity to showcase them yet because they keep selling out before we get to shoot them, but they’ve been such a success we’re going to be batch making them, starting this week.
Each crop top is one-of-a-kind and totally unique. They are handcrafted out of beautiful vintage cotton, lace and linen remnants with pretty embroidered or applique detailing.
By choosing pieces made from hand-picked vintage fabrics, not only are you helping to keep beautiful textiles in the loop you’re also buying a piece that tells a story and has gone a journey from the components materials to the final piece.
Crop tops are versatile and perfect for summer. These are made from lightweight breathable fabrics the perfect pairing for a pair of washed out denim cut-offs or your favourite floaty trousers. From holidaying to festivals, our tops will take you from soaking up the sun in the day to summer nights drinking wine under the stars.
Here are our 5 favourite ways to style them:
The Cute ‘Summer Days’ Dungaree Look
This first look is perfect for those of us who love wearing pretty, summer clothes but require something a little more practical for the day to day activities. The delicate straps mean that you can get a bit of sun on your shoulders and the light and airy fit will keep you feeling cool and comfortable all day.
Team your crop top with a pair of loose dungarees or romper in a light fabric. The minty green and the delicate print of the crop top paired with the more tomboyish one piece gives the outfit a playful and relaxed vibe.
The ‘Ready-for-Adventures’ Outfit
A strappy crop top teamed with a pair of loose fit trousers is a summer classic – ideal for summer adventuring! The best thing about palazzo pants is you can find different shapes and styles to suit your body shape plus they are super comfortable – we particularly love an elasticated waistband!
Perfectly offset your tan with pale linen strap top. This one is a special one-of-a-kind piece made with a pretty vintage cut out panel. The best thing about these tops is that they can be dressed up or down.
The Boho Maxi Skirt and Crop Top Look
For the ultimate boho goddess chic, get floaty with this ethereal look that will take you dancing into the night. Simply pick your favourite long maxi skirt and pair with one of our cropped t-shirt style pieces.
These two come with are made from vintage embroidered and lace remnants, adding intricate detailing and texture, giving this festival classic a unique spin. Crop tops are incredibly flattering when paired with a loose, high waisted skirt like this one, as they finish at the waistband, skimming the top of the hips creating an elegant silhouette and adding dimension to the outfit.
We’d recommend this effortless and carefree look for summer evenings.
The ‘Relaxed Weekend’ High Waisted Jeans and Crop Top Look
Cropped and hemmed to finish just above the waistband, our crops are cut in a boxy style which looks lovely with a pair of low rise boyfriend jeans. We love the juxtaposition of the sheer, delicate lace with tomboyish denim.
The top keeps the look light and summery and we’ve chosen fabrics and laces in earthy, natural tones – perfectly offset by a peak of a lace bralette in a similar shade underneath. Wear this outfit walking around the town, or on mild evenings exploring pub gardens.
The ‘City Girl’ outfit
You can also wear our vintage crop tops under a strappy dress to keep your shoulders out of the sun, or for when the days get a little bit cooler. This vintage white lace works really well as a layering piece and is a spin on the classic white t-shirt and dress combination.
We love using these stunning vintage laces to make our crop tops and lacies. They’re all limited edition and totally unique, making special pieces you’ll want to keep forever. Simply add your favourite pieces of jewellery and you’ll be ready to stroll!
