Wearing a crop top in your 30s

This was so not planned to be an outfit post. It was supposed to be just a makeup look, but I loved how the entire look turned out + I was heading out shopping to VR mall which makes for a great background, so now you have an outfit as well.

Crop tops are so not me, because I am totally not comfortable showing my midriff. I don't have a flat tummy and that has made me super conscious. Somehow I always felt crop tops were not age appropriate for me. I was no longer a slim, flat-tummy-20-something college goer. I sure as hell did not want to dress like a wannabe and I guess that's why I steered clear of the crop top trend for a very long time. I mean come on, I was a 30 year old woman, elegance should be my style statement at all times. Right?

Well then I stumbled upon this crop top-ish kind of top at Jealous jeans and surprisingly I loved how it looked on me. It has a slightly boxy fit and is long enough to hit the top of my jeans. For me this was the most comfortable length of a crop top. I think that is the key to pulling off this look. I paired this with a worn out pair of black jeans from Wills Lifestyle (On a whole other note, I think I might be losing weight because this jeans has become kind of lose on me). To some this may not seem like a crop top at all but for me, this is definitely one of the shorter tops in my wardrobe and when I lift my hands it definitely shows my tummy, so it looks crop top-ish.

To complete the look, I layered 2 chokers. The maroon stone one is ancient. I have had it for over 15 years now (actually I mooched it off my mom) and now that chokers are back in trend, I took it out of the box and put it good use. The other choker is from Macreme and has been featured here before. Absolutely in love with this choker and it is so versatile.

For makeup, I tried my hand at a fall inspired look. I have this absolutely gorgeous palette from Becca and that's what I used for the the eye makeup. I used the burgandy shade all over the lid and blended it out towards the crease for a smooth finish. My lipstick is Sugar Cosmetics Matte as Hell Crayon Lipstick in Poison Ivy. Such a gorgeous deep burgandy. If only we had Fall in India. *sigh*

This is how I decided to style a crop top (okay okay crop top-ish) keeping it simple, trendy and appropriate for a 30 year old to wear. What do you guys think??
