They’re the most versatile trend you didn’t know you needed
Bralette crop tops especially knit crop tops and knit bralettes are everywhere. You can’t visit a designer or influencers instagram or website without seeing them. While knit bralette crop tops might sound completely impractical, aren’t knits supposed to be warm? Knitted bralette and cardigans are actually designed to be comfortable, cozy but a little sexy and revealing and perfect for layering with. Bralette crop tops are one of those pieces you can wear year round thanks to the cutest matching sets this Fall/Winter. I’ve been stocking up on high waisted shorts, blazer and matching bralette crop top sets like the one below.

The beauty of this trend is that they’re so versatile for all seasons. Which is why I’ve completely fallen for them and if you’re worried about being cold, layering your knit bralette and cardigan sets solve that problem.
If crop tops aren’t for you, try halter tops which are a super flattering trend for this season.

Why I’m loving the originally daunting knit bralette crop top trend
Knit bralette crop tops are warmer and cozier than most other crop tops and are perfect for layering with. Meaning you can wear them under lots of layers in Winter, under a matching cardigan, blazer or sheer top for Spring and Fall or on its own in Summer.
It’s literally one of the most versatile pieces out there right now and one you’ll get great CPW from. They’re cute, they’re cozy, they’re as sexy or as casual as you want them to be.

I found this 3 piece knit skirt sets knit bralette a little long in the straps as I have a really short torso so I used a bra clip to pull it into a racer back and to shorten the straps.
