Hooded Crop Top

The best thing about cropped hoodies is that they are distinctly fashionable. Nearly every fashion line incorporates this style of hoodie and they can be whipped out at all times of the year (providing you are layered up during winter months of course!)

You can easily cut up an old hoodie to make one of these for yourself but be sure to use an appropriate style of scissors to ensure that you are not making the process harder than it needs to be!

These crops can become a part of your exercise routine or worn as an essential item for a chilled evening with wine at a friend’s house!

Minimalist 90s Crop Top

Purchase a popsicle design and iron it onto an old vest top to create the perfect summer item. These crops are perfectly suited for chilling by the pool on a summer’s day and the brighter colors that you use, the more your stencil design will pop authentically. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Make My Own Crop Top As Opposed To Just Buying One?

Whilst you can just purchase a new crop top, making your own provides a sense of satisfaction that is incomparable.

The more confident that you become when re-working your old clothes, the more that you will save money and feel more inclined to become experimental in your process.

People love designs that are hand-made and crop tops are arguably the easiest form of clothing that can be made as you can rework a plethora of old clothes ranging from hoodies to t-shirts.

Can Crop Tops Only Be Worn During The Summer Months?

Whilst crop tops are traditionally only worn during the summer months due to the weather conditions, there is no reason why you can’t layer these items up during the winter, placing a thermal underneath or an alternative vest in order to showcase your unique design during all seasons.

Contrary to what you may believe, there is no limitation on when you can and cannot wear a crop top. 

Are Crop Tops Better To Exercise In?

Crop tops definitely provide you with more freedom whilst exercising as your body is more aerated and you will therefore feel cooler when running on a treadmill or on the street.

The cooler that your body temperature is, the more likely you are to complete that 10 mile run and these tops are therefore perfect for those who are exercising extensively and for those who have just started to implement a fitness routine into their daily lives.
