Well slap us silly, are you lot in for a treat! This Sunday’s Blogger of the Week is none other than fellow Edinburgh dweller and general delight, Mary from Fashionbirds. Take it away style Queen…
My name is Mary. I am a Swiss fashion student currently living and studying in beautiful Edinburgh and I am the founder and editor of my own fashion and style blog, Fashionbirds by Mary, which has been running since 2011. Today I am excited to tell you about my current fashion obsession: crop tops.
Showing off your bare midriff has been frowned upon for almost two decades. The last time crop tops were en vogue was in the glorious 1990’s. The cropping trend, however, has been sneaking back into fashion in the last few months and I must admit that I am more than excited! To me, everything cropped (tops and trousers in particular) makes a chic and stylish fashion statement.

Crop tops are the perfect alternative to show off some skin without showing too much cleavage or wearing a miniskirt. In this post I will show you my favourite outfit combinations: minimalistic, chic, sporty and elegant.
I can’t wait for the warmer spring days when I am able to throw on some crop tops without risking hypothermia. My go-to high street shops for finding the most stylish, inexpensive crop tops are definitely Zara and Topshop whilst I like to go to H&M to find high waisted pants and skirts that make the combination perfect. The Mallzee app can help you find your perfect crop top too!
PS: my secrets to keep my tummy and waist in shape are two sessions of Pilates a week. For more fashion updates and inspirations you can follow me on Instagram, too.
