Just perfect with high-waisted skirts, shorts and paper-bag waist trousers, the crop top is not reserved for summer. The surest way to update your fave denim jeans, and you don't have to show skin, layer over a tonal fitted (and semi-tucked-in) Tee or shirt. I found such an awesome variety at The Lot (who stock Motel too: the floral one below is R380, Motel)the polka dot crop jumper above R599 and the snowflake and hearts cropped sweater R329 [last one below] (PS I found them all in store on the 18th June) For more info call 021 4243846
