Q: “I love the bustier crop top trend. What are the best things to pair with it? With patterns and colors?”

A: Styling bustier tops is an easy task, just think festival style and take that and run with it.  A good rule of thumb would be pairing the bustier crop top with a high waisted skirt or shorts. That way you aren’t baring too much skin but just enough to leave the rest to the imagination. I decided to pair my bustier top with some really cute high waisted shorts. Since the top has such a bright pattern, I kept the rest of the outfit more neutral, with the exception of the purse which happens to perfectly match the mint color in the top. Like I mentioned a couple of weeks ago… I like to mix patterns and pieces you usually wouldn’t put together, but tying in every piece with one or two of the same elements is key! Another trick to tie in the festival look with your bustier top is pairing it with booties instead of heels or wedges. It keeps things more casual.
