Pencil Crop Top Set

Celebrities like Zoey Deutch and all the Kardashians are rocking this specific style. The title is pretty straightforward, a pencil skirt and a matching crop top. I’ve seen different variations of this, such as a skater skirt instead of a pencil skirt, but it is this particular style that’s flooding the fashion scene.


The fabric can be made out of almost anything, cotton, lace on top of silk, and even thick wool. Patterns vary from solid to plaid, tribal to floral. Typically, there aren’t any add-ons to the fabric, but I have seen scalloped hems or lace overlap. Pencil skirt and crop top sets can look flattering on any body shape, but it just depends on how thin your fabric is. If you you prefer more coverage and concealment, opt for a thicker fabric. But if you honestly don’t care or if youre body confident, try cotton.


Obviously, guys can’t wear this style, and it’s not really for all girls either. By no means is this set for a professional setting, despite the pencil skirt part. People usually wear this set for a night out and for special occasions. A suggested way to rock this: pair a pastel floral printed set with minimal accessories like a single statement necklace or single chunky bracelet. Then top it off with strappy¬†nude heels (to counteract the loudness of the outfit).


This set is best worn in the spring, summer, and fall, with patterns changing accordingly. The look is best worn without a jacket, but if you must, then opt for a crochet loose sweater for softer sets or a structured blazer for edgier sets. This surely means that matching pencil crop top sets are one of those versatile, all-over-the-fashion-spectrum type of pieces. Uber-girly girls can wear these as well as punk-rock fanatics. Seriously, why aren’t you going out and buying one right now?


TL;DR: Pencil skirt plus a matching crop top. Very fashion forward but soo worth it.

Loose off-the-shoulder tops¬†are getting popular this year, as their boho style pairs perfectly with music festivals such as Coachella and SXSW. It’s been around since I can remember, but only recently have clothing companies been implementing a modern touch to the style, creating the next upcoming fashion trend. The look is typically boho/western chic, but a change in fabric can turn it into any style for any occasion.


This type of clothing is usually made out of cotton or lace and comes in a variety of colors. Off-the-shoulders are just for girls, unfortunately. I suggest wearing a flowy white off-the-shoulder paired with some high waisted shorts and brown leather boots. Wrap bracelets and a flower crown would add a nice touch, like the lady pictured above.


Off-the-shoulders are typically worn in the spring and summer, since the shoulders are getting some breathing room. It might be hard to find at this point but once you see one, buy it immediately and watch the compliments flood in. Remember, always dress according to your body shape and preference. If you aren’t excited about baring the entire upper part of your body, opt out of this trend. But if you love this and want to try it out, I highly suggest you do! You end up looking like a Greek goddess no joke.


TL;DR: Off-the-shoulder = boho goddess = go to the mall and buy this NOW.
