Trend Alert! Meet Your Match At Glamorous

summer trends 2013

Anyone who follows trends will know that crop tops have been ruling the fashion scene for over a year now. The newest take on the crop top trend is pairing a patterned crop top with a matching high waisted skirt. The combination allows for you to reveal a slight sliver of your midriff, while also looking elegant and composed because of your matching separates.

Celebs have been seen rocking this look on red carpets around the world. Gwyneth Paltrow wore an Emilio Pucci beaded skirt and matching crop top to the Emmys. Selena Gomez took a more playful route by mixing patterns. Katy Perry showed off her wild side by wearing a crop top with a low neckline and a matching high waisted skirt. And you too can get their chic looks in no time by taking an online stroll to!

This look is completely perfect for a summer night out. It is subtly sexy, you will not be showing too much skin, and some people might even think you are wearing a dress! The crop top will highlight a hint of your toned stomach and the high waisted skirt will show off your great curves, and what’s sexier than that? To accessorize, add a pair of stiletto heels or playful wedges and a necklace. Depending on how bold you would like to be, feel free to rock a large statement necklace with your patterned ensemble. If you aren’t as daring, wear a simple pendant necklace to add a pretty touch to your look.

As always, you will look very chic and put-together while wearing matching separates! If you want to play it safe, wear a monochromatic look, like all red. And when it comes to the patterns? Anything goes. Florals are perfect for summer, but you can also get away with crazier patterns, such as a geometric tribal print or a galaxy image (which is also very hot this summer) because they come together.

We at Your Coffee Break love the trend!
