Are Crop Tops Ever Okay for the Office?

August 9, 2017

The answer? Most likely, probably not. Perhaps if you had a pretty relaxed job in the fashion industry, but I assume in the average workplace it is a no. However, in an alternate universe, this is what I would wear if crop tops were indeed appropriate office attire. To make it more professional, I chose a dark color palette - mainly grey and black. This way, the outfit is more streamlined and coordinated.

                    Related: Additional Way I Styled this Top

This crop top with tie details is so darn cute and I always get loads of compliments when I wear it (still available on Asos)! The black block heels are also from Asos, but aside from that, everything else in this outfit is thrifted. I recently found these gorgeous tailored grey pants that are actually Ralph Lauren uniform pants from the boys section. They surprisingly fit my waist perfectly and fall at the perfect ankle length. Perks of being short, I guess. The bag and belt are also past thrift store finds.

                 Thrift Tip: Don't forget to check the other departments too. You never know when you will find a hidden gem such as these pants from the boys section!

In other news, I plan on having a detailed post up about how I shoot all my own outfit photos myself. If you have any questions, be sure to drop them below in the comments! x

  2. In love with this look!! I have worn crop tops to the office but that's as an intern/university student – now that I'm graduated it probably wouldn't be appropriate haha. Can't believe those are boys trousers, they look so good on you!

  3. At my workplace, definitely not! But you look so good with those tailored pants and cropped top, I never would have thought of putting them together!

  6. This look suits you so beautiful.
    I believe it is always better to dress more conservative in the office. But this might depend on the branch you work. Have a fantastic week.

  8. This is a really good spin on crop tops in the office! I LOVE the crop top and the bow details! I wore a crop top in the office once but tried my best to make it not look like one by adding a high waisted pencil skirt, loool.

  17. While crop tops might not be okay in the work place, you can still make them look professional and polished and so, so chic - like you did! I love this ensemble!

  18. I don't have a strict office attire here at my workplace, basically we don't have a dress code at all so I can totally show up to work in crop tops haha I love how minimal and chic your style are, Keri! :)

  20. That would be neat if crop tops were allowed in the office. I love this outfit especially the top since it reminds me of an assassin. That's so cool that your trousers are from the little boys section, such a gem!

  24. Crop tops should be accepted in every business as long as it's not too short. I love the way you styled your crop top in the pictures.

  25. I totally wish they we're allowed in my workplace but I work in the medical field so I don't ever seeing that as an option unfortunately. I totally think your outfit is office appropriate and so girl boss chic!

  35. My first thought was No, but when I saw how you rock your cropped top I think you can wear it to an office like this!

  37. That's a really chic look, and I'm sure that is okay in my former job in the fashion event organizing agency. It really depends on the office environment, in my former job, shorts and a shirt is fine but not with a spaghetti strap unless you'll wear a cardigan. Cropped tops are okay as well as long as you pair it with high -waisted jeans. You can wear anything as long as it is balanced, chic and still look pro. It's the same with my other friend and their advertising agency :)

  40. What a chic look! I definitely think this crop top is super cute but probably not appropriate for the traditional 9-5 job. =) I can't believe you found these trousers in the boys' department. Such a fab fit! So chic and a great outfit babe! xoxo, Christine

  41. In my workplace, not too. But that was before. Now, since I am working at home, I can absolutely wear anything I want. And my! I couldn't be amazed with your selections. Love this whole outfit.

  42. That is a cute outfit. I love how it's a mix of casual and professional. You're right though, we can't wear anything like that at my office. In fact, we're also not allowed to wear tank tops or spaghetti strap shirts. It's a shame because I own so many cute tanks.

  43. Can't wear this to work in the future but I love how you styled it! Would be great to wear though

  53. I think it depends on the place you're working at. In my personal opinion crop tops with high waisted bottoms are totally fine :)
