Outfit of the Week: A Crop Top and Jeans

So, how did you like that heat dome over the weekend? The rational answer: It sucked. Chances are that if you even stepped outdoors for more than a few minutes you were hot, sweaty, and cranky. And at that point, thinking up something creative to wear when all you want to do is crawl back into your air-conditioned apartment is the equivalent of solving an LSAT logic puzzle.

The easy answer to getting dressed? Don’t overthink it. Keep it simple with a cool piece that combines two big trends of the moment: the off-the-shoulder crop top. Worn with a high-waisted bottom — be it jeans, shorts, or a skirt — it’s the kind of outfit you throw on to eat a Popsicle while cooling yourself off on the nearest stoop.
