We're taking five summertime events and showing you how to wear the official clothing item of the season—a crop top—to each one. No turning back on your abs exercises now.
On and Off the Beach
A crop top bathing suits does double duty as a regular item of clothing off the beach, too. Just pair it with a denim skirt, slip on your slides, then explore the boardwalk.

My jewelry choices are always evolving (and revolving) and thanks to the discovery of Brazilian designer Vanda Jacintho’s accessories collection, I’ve been lured back on the statement jewelry wagon. I’m loving all the oversized wood and resin bangles and necklaces and mismatched, shoulder sweeping earrings. Bold and so beautiful.
From Honestly WTF
Let there be more fans. Not the selfie-taking, barrier-upending kind, but the breeze-making, ha-I'm-from-another-century kind. It's one more thing to wedge into your straw basket, sure, but well worth the two seconds of trouble when your train gets stuck underground and the AC malfunctions. Other pros: that satisfying THWAP sound, can function as an instrument of seduction. See seven inspiration photos below.

Or you could no-bag it for the breeziest summer outfit of all. In complementary pastels, an accordion fan to wave lazily in front of your face/smack other people in their faces if they're rude is the only accoutrement you need.

Ever so slowly, the tube top crept back into our collective consciousness before we could say "Smocking! Begone!" But maybe it's not so bad this time around? Even with the tiny sunglasses that have somehow also survived the bonfire of the aught-ities? To help you arrive at a decision, a collection of photos ahead.

Before we officially start, a refresher on what people wore in 2000. Look at the sequins. The implied stretchiness. The spoon-bowl-size lenses on the sunglasses! Those were the days—or not.

Just when you thought we were running out of trends to revive from the '90s, another nostalgic piece has slowly been making its comeback: teen, tiny sunglasses. Though not entirely practical for UV ray protection (and you know, actually blocking the sun from your eyes), the micro frames reigned as the ultimate cool girl statement in the '90s and early 2000s. Now making their return as the shades of choice for the It girls of 2017 (namely Bella Hadid) and the fashion blogger set, the retro frames are officially back. Shop the looks of the season below.
