The cropped top and pencil skirt combo has really been making its rounds with celebrities lately (namely my girl Kim Kardashian, Naya Rivera and Katy Perry). If you’re feeling brave and want to give this sexy trend a try for spring, I’ve put together an affordable look to help you out. It’s one of those rare outfits that not only create curves but seriously flatter them, making it wearable for a lot of different body types. Let me know what you think below!
Cropped Tops & Pencil Skirts for Spring

Can never go wrong with neutrals, a little leopard and bright lips You could also swap the pencil skirt for a full midi skirt or the cropped top for a voluminous sweater if you want to play with proportions. xo

Matching sets no longer apply to just your underwear or bikini – tops and bottoms that have the same color or print are a huge trend for spring and summer. I selected 5 options to shop from below but if you’re not sold on investing in this trend just yet, try a monochrome look or same colored separates instead. I personally love the idea of wearing the same pattern head to toe so I am definitely diving into the look next season (#1 is my favorite!)!
Matching Sets for Summer
- Sanctuary tie dye faux leather
- Pixie Market Anouk Florette Set
- Torn by Ronny alternate stripes
- Jane Norman puff print
- Ribbon Aztec coordinates

So spring isn’t quite here yet but I’m a big fan of pretty pastels any time of year. The key to pulling them off in the winter? Read on for my tips and outfit ideas below…
Pastels + Boyfriend Jeans: 2 Ways

- I added touches of black to add some weight – small details like the belt, shoes and bag make a big difference
- Boyfriend jeans are easily dressed up or down and make an edgy, unexpected combination with the pastel top and bag
- Mixing lighter shades can look a little young so add metallic accents (I went for the footwear) to add some sophistication
What do you think? Will you be mixing pastels any time soon?
