That Kinda Love

Ok ladies, Valentine’s day is almost here! For some, it’s a dreaded holiday, where you are bombarded with stands of roses and no one to buy them for you. For others, it’s a holiday filled with nice dinners, flowers and chocolate.

We think this year, it should be about celebrating all kinds of love! Whether it’s self-love, family love, friend love, or with your loved one. Something simple such as treating yourself to a nice bottle of bubbly and a bath. Or perhaps a girls night out to celebrate all your amazing friendships. If you are lucky to live by your family, then perhaps spend the day with them. For those of you in love, for once do something romantic for him instead of waiting for him to do the gesture.

Regardless of how you choose to celebrate, here are our favorite little red numbers:

Some little layouts for you!

I don’t know about you, but when I see a trend I love, I ALWAYS get stuck on how to incorporate it into my wardrobe. That’s what’s so great about renting: you no longer have to invest in those trendy pieces you just want to try out, as it abolishes the fear of PPW (Price Per Wear). I mean, how many times do we purchase a trend, wear it once and then regret spending all that money on it in the first place? Or how about that guilty feeling that leads us into outliving the trend in order to make our investment worth it?

We’ve put together some trendy looks for you to try out this summer:

How to Wear: Crop Tops

Crop Top: Two words that make some girls cringe. The idea of baring it all, or you know…just your stomach, is somewhat of a frightening thought. Fear not though ladies, there are so many different ways to style this popular trend for so many different body types. Whether you are tall and lanky or petite and curvy, this is a trend that can, no, will work for you. First thing’s first, the crop top requires you to bare a lot of skin, so if that makes you feel uncomfortable make sure your bottom half is a little more conservative. Think midi skirts or longer.

Curvy

If you are curvy a la Kim Kardashian make sure to wear a crop top that will hit you at the end of your rib cage or right at your waist! Pair with a body conscious pencil skirt and you will achieve that hourglass figure!

Petite

Petite ladies, the key to making this trend work for you are by pairing a boxier cut crop top with high-waist trousers. The boxier cut paired with trousers will elongate your body and give off a more structured look.

Long and slender

Long and lanky ladies, the trick to working this trend is making sure you pair a crop top that hits you right at the waist! Pair with a long and flowy skirt or a pair of boyfriend jeans and you will be good to go! Showing the mid-section and end of your rib cage will elongate your body even more!

Busty

Busty ladies! It can be a bit terrifying barring it all with a crop top but luckily there is a lil’ thing called the bustier. These bustier versions of crop tops will hold it all in!
