Hey there Pretty Birds,

We love crop tops, but we’re not really up for a dose of pneumonia right now.

Have you seen the various street style snaps of brave it-girls and models running around with their flat-as-surfboards abs completely exposed to the freezing NYFW temperatures?  Our tummies ached just looking at them and thoughts of a cold-related, shock-induced case of the runs flashed through our minds. (Excuse the sordid imagery, we usually don’t say such things on ATPB, but seriously guys, it was 26 degrees outside and we don’t know how they pulled it off). So we got to thinking that there must be a cuter and warmer way to embrace the trend, like layering them over simple white t-shirts, warm turtlenecks and embroidered shirts, and pair them with boyfriend jeans and a cosy mohair coat for the day, or velvet skinny jeans, an elegant blazer and metallic pumps for night time. Here are a couple of fun cropped looks that we came up with. And let us know, would you wear a crop top outside in the dead of winter?
