I once saw Bella Hadid wear a crop top with relaxed jeans, so I started wearing crop tops and relaxed jeans. I wish that was a joke, but it's actually so real. One day while scrolling through Instagram, I came across this image of Bella wearing the one summer outfit that was missing from my life. It was also the outfit I was pretty timid to try. As stated before, the duo is simple, consisting of only a crop top or bra top and a relaxed pair of jeans.
Besides the fact that this easy summer outfit combination has saved me so much time rummaging through my closet trying to find a look that is cute but also fashion-forward, the combo is incredibly flattering. There is something about the juxtaposition of the looser fit and tiny crop top that creates the perfect complement to your waistline.
Another great thing about this look is that it can be created in a variety of ways depending on your personal style. Try wearing a cropped tee with sneakers or a flirty bra top with mules—whichever iconic duo you decide on, you'll be rocking one of the coolest summer outfit ideas in seconds flat.
