The crop top, summer’s most challenging trend, gets the professional treatment at the hands of style pro Tala Samman. When approached from the angle of casual sophistication, the crop top is capable of adding a dash of summery youthfulness to your look. Samman keeps musical festivals in mind for Look 1, and prepares a comfortable ensemble to accommodate the heat of the outdoors. She layers together a Clover Canyon crop top and a pair of This Is a Love Song overalls before adding a pair of espadrilles to balance proportions. Look 2 travels well and is ideal for vacation style or practically any day activities. Her flirty top is accompanied by Unif shorts and a chic white jacket. Her final look elevates the elegant potential of the crop by pairing it with radiant royal-blue Paper London culottes, a Masterpeace headband, and a Nasha clutch.
