Are Crop Tops Ever Okay for the Office?


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.

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

  1. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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 🙂

  4. 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.

  5. After I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are
    added- checkbox and now every time a comment
    is added I get four emails with the same comment.
    There has to be a means you can remove me from that service?
    Thank you!

  6. I precisely wanted to thank you very much yet again. I am not sure what I would have accomplished in the absence of these advice discussed by you on my industry. It has been a real depressing situation in my view, however , observing the very specialised form you resolved the issue took me to weep for contentment. I’m just thankful for this work and as well , hope that you recognize what a powerful job you were undertaking teaching people via your blog post. Most likely you haven’t come across any of us.
