Beat the heat with these irresistible pieces!

Here's a fact: Living in a tropical country has barred us from replicating our Pinterest-style picks that involve layering trench coats atop turtlenecks. Those OOTDs are especially unimaginable now that summer is upon us. On the most humid days, even the thought of donning a button down with three fourths sleeves is nightmarish! 

Thankfully, sartorial flair is not off the table. The answer: Dainty crop tops. If done right, crop tops can be universally flattering— when paired with a strategic trouser or skirt, you can accentuate the best features of your body. Not to mention that you won't have to sacrifice style for comfort! 

We've curated a list of dainty crop tops that you might want to cop this summer. Take a look below: 

1. Mahalina in Beige from Laya 

We're starting off this list with the Mahalina top, an instant favorite. Cottagecore meets the modern classic in this creamy nude top featuring puff sleeves and a chic square neckline. It's open at the back, which adds a hint of sexiness. To top it all off, an oversized ribbon at the back provides a tighter silhouette!

4. Kelsey from Kore Label

Here's a steal—the Kelsey is actually a four-way top! Firstly, it's reversible: One side is furry, while the other is satin. Next, the straps are adjustible: You can opt to form horizontal straps on the front or back, too. How fun would it be to rotate between four different looks with just one top?
