BuyTShirtsOnline American Apparel Crop Top Review

Whilst scrolling through Bloggers Required I spotted an assignment from BuyTshirtsOnline and I immediately put my name down for it. I haven't written as many posts about fashion as I would of liked so I was really pleased that I happened to have spotted it. I was emailed back and told to choose a top from their site so I selected the American Apparel Cotton Spandex sleeveless crop top in black. It comes in 4 other colours; boysenberry, menthe, nude or white and eventually I'll probably invest in them all. I've mentioned this crop top in a few of my posts recently so it was nice to actually get to style it up for myself. I don't wear crop tops that often so it was a welcomed change, I still wouldn't wear one without high-waisted jeans or shorts though because I'm not comfortable with showing that much skin.

It arrived a few days later but I didn't get a chance to wear it straight away because I had just started a new job and I didn't have time to post anything. When I did get a chance to test it out and style it properly I wore it with high-waisted skinny jeans from Primark in grey and I didn't really go overboard with it because it looked great without accessories anyway. As I mentioned in my February Favourites post, it also looks great with fairly see through jumpers or sheer shirts for a more relaxed look but you could also wear it with statement trousers and heels for a night out. One thing I love about the top is that it's so form fitting, I ordered mine in a small and it clung to me without leaving marks in my skin or feeling too tight. It accentuated my waist and looked really flattering on which I'm very pleased about because my waist is the one thing I've always loved about myself, no matter what my size has been.

If you are going to buy this top I advise that you put the top on before makeup because, like I said, it's very form fitting and it might rub off your makeup and stain the top if you don't wait until you're dressed. I tend to wait until I'm dressed anyway because I cleanse and moisturise and then wait for it to sink in before getting on with my makeup, it just makes a better base. 

Before I go to far off topic I'm just going to cut myself off and focus back on the top again, it is easy to style for either casual or dressed up situations and because it's so plain I feel like it's not going to take much to take it from day to night. A statement necklace can dress the item right up but a long necklace with a simple pendant can dress it down depending on your personal style and reason for wearing the crop.

That's me done for this post, I would just like it put out there that this was all my own opinion and I'm not getting paid for placement on my blog. If I didn't like the top then I would just say so because I don't believe in giving false reviews, I don't tend to feature product that I don't like unless I'm explaining why I don't like them. 

Thanks for reading!
