This Pretty Top Will Always Be a Summer Staple

There are some items that just embody the season they are created for. A woolen cable-knit sweater is the ultimate winter staple, while a floral wrap dress practically screams spring. Where summer is concerned, there are few things that represent the season quite like a tasteful cropped puff-sleeve top. 

Often created in crisp cotton or airy linen fabrics, a crop top embodies summer in all of its warm-weather glory. And although the season has yet to officially start, this year we've already spotted a puff-sleeve crop top that is sure to become a summer favorite. Already worn by the likes of Monikh and Lucy Williams, Musier Paris's Carrie top practically has summer written all over it. 

Complete with a mid-sleeve length, gathering around the arm, and intricate lace trim details, the 100% cotton top has certainly solidified itself as a favorite of the season. Styled alongside wide-leg trousers or classic blue jeans, Musier's crop is a summer staple that will stay in your wardrobe for years to come, easily dressed up or down depending on your mood or the occasion.
