In your 20s and 30s, basic crop tops might not speak to your soul as much as ones with prints and ruffles do. Such details take your shirt game to the next level. (That level: sophistication.) Take a cue from style influencer Caroline Daur and rock contrasting top and bottom prints.

Crop tops and maxi skirts go together like peanut butter and jelly. The combination gives the illusion of a longer torso, since the skirt sits high on the hips. And if you want to take this daytime look up a notch, simply add heels.
Good news: You don’t have to donate your childhood favorites—denim overalls, ofc—to Goodwill once you hit 25. The key to nailing this look as an adult is to find pieces that fit and flatter yourfigure.
