Crop tops have been all rage since quite some time now. We have seen women and girls wearing them with jeans, palazzos, flared denim and even with skirts. Ethnic crop tops, however, are versatile pieces of clothing that can completely transform every look – be it a fusion of Indian and western wear or a full traditional look.
It is time to make use of each of those zari laden, melange, linen and even silk crop tops. We at Mivik have a huge variety of ethnic and semi-western crop tops. Start exploring our collection today. But before you do that, here are 5 easy ways to use a crop top to amp up your traditional (or indo-western) attire:
- Wear with a saree
Many Bollywood actresses have tried this style of pairing a saree with a crop instead of a regular blouse. We spotted Jacqueline Fernandes, Sonam Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor donning a crop top in place of a regular saree blouse. The combination looks chic and very classy. It gives your saree a very subtle modern twist that is undeniable and unmissable for any onlooker!
Here’s how Shraddha Kapoor paired a beautiful crop top with her saree:
- Wear with a printed, flared skirt
A big flared skirt with motifs of ethnic block prints or even any other print looks extremely modest when paired with a crop top. For those of you who do not want to go overboard with a crop top, this combination is the safest bet out of all choices suggested here. This look is extremely easy to pull off and suits most body types. Here’s an example you can’t take your eyes off
- Wear with patiala salwars or dhoti pants
Are you too still not over Katrina’s classic patiala salwar look from Namastey London or Kareena’s top and patiala look from Jab We Met? Well, we don’t blame you! Patiala salwars do have such a unique, timeless charm to them.
Give your Patialas a modern twist by pairing them with a crop top. You can additionally layer it with a shrug too.
- Wear with ethnic pants/plazo and a shrug
Be it regular trousers or plazo, ethnic bottoms look stunning when paired with a contemporary crop top. Make way for this edgy yet classy look ladies! This is one look that women of all ages can try. For extra modesty, count on a cozy, long shrug and you’re good to go!
- Wear with a lehenga for extra spunk
Lastly, explore the option of pairing floral lehengas with solid or color-blocked crop tops. This combination gained popularity in the last 2-3 years and has stayed relevant to the indo-western fashion scene. We can see why! First, a crop top with a lehenga is extremely comfortable to wear as a full attire, it does eliminate the need to handle a dupatta as well. Secondly, a crop top takes away the monotony of heavy embroidered blouses with sequinned lehngas, the combination of crop top and lehenga is much easier on the eyes. Don’t believe us? Take a look:
