Office crop tops—sounds like an oxymoron, right? But if you can set that aside for a second and check out the outfit above, you’ll see that all it takes to wear a short shirt Monday through Friday is the right pair of high-waisted trousers. Top-wise, aim for an aggressively hemmed version of your regular work blouses (save the bralet and baby tees for festivities after 6PM!); that way, you’ll get all the benefits of a crisp, tucked-in look without the downside of bunch-y fabric and cumbersome belts.
