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.

With sites like Net-a-Porter, Shopbop, and Stylebop on-boarding new fashion brands faster than you can add to cart, it's hard to keep up with what's really worth shopping. To see what brands insiders are really excited to carry for fall, I touched based with the buyers, fashion directors, and industry experts at these sites and others.
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
The merging paths of fast fashion and always changing trends has forced us to look at our closet without much loyalty. It makes sense to a point: Why spend more on a very nowsilhouette or color when it'll feel undeniably not now within six months? Resisting the lure of whatever you've seen plastered across Instagram has become easier thanks to the expertly curated selection at Permanent Collection. Founders Mariah Nielson and Fanny Singer first crossed paths via their art-world work (they've manned curatorial positions at London's Tate Modern and The Serpentine), but a shared style sensibility inspired them to think about things differently.
A look from Permanent Collection's newest collection.
Not every blogger or model this side of the Seine is all Jane Birkin inspiration, all the time. See how modern Parisians are reconfiguring and redefining what that effortless style synonymous with the City of Lights means—and shop the looks, bien sur.
