Crop Top Goes to Work

Pulling off a crop top takes a lot of guts.  Wearing one as a plus size babe takes extra courage, as this is an item of clothing not typically deemed as “acceptable” to be worn by a larger lady, with mainstream beauty standards being what they are.

So how does a plus sized gal – moi –  dare to wear a crop top to the office?

Let me show ya! 🙂

I took this simple black 3/4 sleeved crop top and layered it over top of a sheer white collared shirt, to create a demure Monday morning polished and sophisticated size crop top

Since the majority of this outfit is quite monochromatic, I decided to add a blingy statement necklace with loud bright pinks and greens, and earrings to match.  (For other monochromatic looks click here, here and here.)


Old Navy‘s Pixie pants were recently on sale again recently – which I immediately alerted everyone to via the FB page – you’re welcome 🙂

I look a little hysterical, I know! Shopping deals on perfect fitting pants do that to me 🙂

I found this great houndstooth pattern among them.  Just love the look of them with these glossy pumps!  IMG_5336

Plus, I finally unveiled the wine moto jacket y’all helped me buy … well, helped with your comments on FB to determine whether or not I should bring this baby home from Reitmans!  Haaza!

  1. LOVE this outfit Irene! You look polished and stylish. Im not sure I’d be brave enough to buy a crop top in the first place much less style it for work. I’m gaga for the wine coloured jacket from Reitmans! And your necklace is gorgeous!

    • Oh hunni…I felt all kinda of nervous just taking this crop top to the cashier. But I really liked how this look turned out. Glad you are too 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to comment Marija!
