Cropped Top over 50 & Fancy Friday linkup

me in a cropped top

I am not at all for cropped tops. although I already wore one here. But I’ve always loved puff sleeves. And so I took for granted the fact that the cropped top is actually just too short for my taste. I love the checked print, the colors and the sleeve! And of course I can add a black camisole underneath.

Can I still dig a cropped topblack scuba pencil skirt

Well, despite what the title suggests, I’m not going to discuss whether you can wear a cropped top when you’re over 50. Who am I to say what can and what can’t be worn. But I can speak for myself of course. And I still wear what I want and what I feel like. But I have to say that I will only put on this top with high waist trousers or skirt. And I’m not going to wear it when I go out to dinner either. Not such a pretty sight with a full belly and a top that is too short … uh no. I suddenly see yeah but no but from Little Brittain in front of me.

I am wearing a camisole under the cropped top because it has a rather deep neckline. And a little belly and breasts seems a bit too much to me .. And at first a camisole underneath seemed too frumpy, but this one with lace actually looks very nice. The scuba skirt is one of my favorite pencil skirts. Scuba, or neoprene, is so ideal to wear. Not only skirts, but dresses too! It does not crease and it falls so smoothly around your body.

I also keep the accessories calm with this cropped top outfit. A beautiful coarse link bracelet in matte gold and some red accents on the nails and lips! I could have worn orange mules, but in my head that looks to much. The top speaks for itself. Sometimes we don’t need much!orange black checked top

    You have made this crop top work well! I love the puffy sleeves… I just got a sweater with some fun puffy sleeves and I can’t wait to wear it.

    I think this top looks great with the skirt and I love the puffed sleeves. I remember you in that other cropped top last year and it look amazing on you! You are right – wear what you like!

    Nancy, this is simpy stunning! Great styling The top underneath is extra charming and connects with the black skirt. I love neoprene. Finally another person who does, too. For the same reasons. xo Sabina

    Like absolutely anything else, successfully wearing a crop top is all in the styling. Your top looks perfect with the skirt & cami layered underneath. Have a fabulous weekend my friend!

    I always always love when you wear and style this stunning black pencil skirt with the wrap. Like you I have been wearing cropped pants (this Summer too, despite the extra kilos I gained) with high-waisted bottoms. Love your crop top and how you got creative with it. You look great!

    Welcome by and join my linkup, Nancy. Thanks, Ada. =)

    I love this look, Nancy! I think a cropped top with high waisted anything looks great on almost everyone! This plaid top is so cute. I love the colors in it. But I hear you about a food baby popping out the bottom of your cropped top. I don’t think anyone would notice, but I would sure feel self conscious. Such a great post, too! You go on and wear whatever the heck you like…including cropped tops. You have the figure to show off, show it, girl!

    Nancy,

    You are so clever to wear a high waisted skirt with a cropped top!
    I usually avoid cropped tops for baring my belly at 63 so this is perfect!

    Always fabulous my friend!

    I’m wary of crop tops too, but you styled yours perfectlyโ€”a high-waisted skirt is definitely the way to go, and looks super flattering on you!

    I’ve never been a fan of cropped tops myself, as I do feel the need to wear something tucked in. But that’s got nothing whatsoever to do with age, as I didn’t like wearing them when I was younger either. That said, I love your plaid patterned and puff sleeved top and I love how you wore it with that gorgeous high waist skirt. A great look! I think you should wear whatever makes you feel happy and never mind about any agist remarks. There are hordes of young girls out there who’d benefit from not wearing cropped tops :-))) xxx

    I’d wear it over a dress too!

  19. 18th September 2020 / 18:22

    You styled the top and outfit perfectly, Nancy. I agree–I don’t want my belly and rolls to show, nor do I especially like lots of cleavage!! Lol! And you are right that everyone can make that decision for themselves and what they like! Have a great weekend.

    Hi, Nancy – You really knew how to style a crop top over 50! I love the idea of wearing a camisole underneath which will cover the tummy. I don’t have a crop top but now you are making me feel like it would be okay. If I do, I’ll have to wear it with my high-waist pencil skirt like yours. You look great in it! Thanks for the inspiration, Angie – http://www.yourtrueselfblog.com

    I love how you’ve styled the top! I bought a cropped wrap blouse on eBay that is more cropped than I expected so I will have to wear it over a dress or camisole! I don’t like to show my midriff!

    I love this cropped style of wrap top too, but like you, I have to wear a camisole under or “boobs and belly, ahoy!” This is a great classy outfit, Nancy. I probably would have done orange shoes, but I’m over the top that way, ha ha!

    Thank you so much for the link-up!
