The long days of summer are starting to get shorter, but the temperature is still very hot! One of the trends that Steph and I love for these warm-weather days is the crop top. While crop tops are amazing for hot weather, they are not as practical in the cooler months and are less versatile than regular t-shirts. So, we thought, why not make your own faux crop top out of your favorite tee? One of my favorite t-shirts is my "Feline Meow" top designed by Brian Lichtenberg. There are several reasons this makes a lot of sense. For one, crop tops are often not a one-length-fits-all article of clothing. Some people have longer torsos than others, some people have smaller waists than others, and it becomes difficult to find a crop top that is designed exactly for your figure. Tying up your favorite tee into a faux crop top is a great solution because you can tie it at a place that accentuates your figure the best, while still keeping on trend and having the option to wear it as a regular tee in cooler months. Also, should the crop top trend ever disappear, you still have the t-shirt. Having versatility is key :).
