Even though I sweat through several crop tops this weekend, I've determined that the combination of the summer-friendly style with high-waisted denim shorts is my best bet for surviving the crazy summer heat without feeling totally naked. So, when I spotted an adorable gingham version on Of A Kind while curled up with the computer in front of my window A/C this weekend, I knew it would be the perfect addition to my dog-days-of-summer wardrobe.
The cotton top by Sechung features delightful crossover sleeves and optional panels on the side, complete with closures to control skin exposure. I'm also a fan of the gingham print, because I don't actually own anything with the classic pattern. I've always considered it a bit too preppy, but this top's clever construction feels fresh enough to counteract any overly prim vibes. And there's nothing like a graphic pattern to distract from sweat stains...
Sechung gingham top, $120, available at Of A Kind.
