Social media can take lemons… and make lemonade. It’s true! For example, take the body-shaming quote found in O, The Oprah Magazine, that stated that someone can only wear a crop top only if they have a flat something. What?! My friend Tamar Anitai encouraged women to not be restricted by these fashion rules, be confident, own it, and #RocktheCrop.
The concept spread like wildfire, and soon, many women were taking to social media using the hashtag and posting pics of them wearing crop tops. Because of the mentality of these so called, “fashion rules,” I’ve only one crop top to my name, which I never ever wore, but strangely feel more at ease than ever with wearing the look now, thanks to #RocktheCrop. This particular crop top, which is at least 15 years old, has a very subtle peekaboo effect, but I find that it totally fits my aesthetic, and looks phenomenal with its matching skirt. Just to think, all of those years, it lay dormant in my drawer, because I didn’t feel confident enough to pull it off.
So I say to you, dear reader: It’s summer, it’s hot outside, and warm weather fashions are just such a joy…why don’t you rock the crop?
