Dear all plus sized women: please don't be afraid to wear crop tops!
I've been seeing a lot of street fashion and plus size style posts with crop tops recently and I thought I'd give it a try. This post is the first of many outfits that will include a crop top so get ready. I'm kind of obsessed...
This outfit includes a 3/4 sleeve crop top and leopard harem pants both from Forever21+, and a fabulous quilted leather purse from Danier Leather.

Wearing a crop top with a plus size figure was a little scary for me. The thought of it never crossed my mind until I saw some absolutely beautiful plus size bloggers wearing them this summer. I finally decided to take a risk and buy one from Forever21+ because it was only $7, and now I am completely in love with the look! Every larger lady should try this out regardless of what other people think. When I wear crop tops now, I feel empowered.
Now, about the actual clothes. This is a size 2X and it fits perfectly. The crop top is actually 3/4 sleeves, which is great for me because I always find myself rolling my sleeves up at some point during the day anyways. It's a well made top and the material is soft and smooth. The harem pants are also equally amazing. I sized up to a 3X for a baggier fit. Wear them high waisted on your natural waist, or on the hips like regular pants. There's a million possibilities to mix and match, just like any other printed pant.
The purse from Danier Leather is dainty and small, yet it has enough space for a phone, wallet and etc. It has 3 separate compartments so you're able to sort your belongings. Black quilted leather is a classic look, somewhat like vintage Chanel quilted leather purses. The only downside of this purse is that the chain is only long enough to be worn over the shoulder - it's not a big deal though! I love it anyways.
I'm kind of obsessed with harem pants and crop tops right now, so expect many more posts like this.
