Diwali Special: How To Look Stylish In A Crop-Top Skirt Combo

14 styles to choose from. Read on to find yours.

With the Diwali holidays setting in, it’s time for parties, catching up with friends, and visiting relatives. And for each outing, it’s a must that you experiment and channel your best sartorial side. The one trend that is on the must-wear list of every millennial is the very popular lehenga-crop top combine. Here are 11 different ways of styling a combo of crop-top and skirt for this festive season.

Sheer Jacket


If you are wearing a crop top and skirt and want to flaunt it but with a slightly different edge, opt for a long sheer jacket. It looks best when the skirt and top are plain and the sheer jacket is embroidered with a contrast coloured thread.

Heavy Dupatta


If you own a simple monotone lehenga or a pair of simple, non-patterned crop top and a long skirt, you can give a touch of glamour and tradition to it by adding a heavy dupatta to it. Opt for dupattas such as phulkari, or silk ones embroidered with zari, etc.

Wide And Deep Necked Top


The wide-neck designs such as V-shape, U-shape, rectangular shape, etc. look so graceful! You can opt for a big chunky semi-precious stone or precious stone neckpiece and big sparkly danglers for your ears.

Loose-Sleeved Crop Top


Loose sleeved crop tops are basically the ones with flappy ‘wings’. Opt for an A-line skirt to pair with such crop-tops.

Abstract Design


Abstract prints on tops are so modern-day! If you are going for a very basic outfit such as a monotoned skirt and abstract-print crop top, both of the same colours, you can opt for contrast-coloured jewellery to add the right amount of glam to your look.

Boat Neck Top


Boat-necked tops are graceful, elegant and ageless. If you have broad shoulders (and the right poise, of course), you will definitely look invincible. Ditch a neckpiece and go for huge jhumkas instead.

Mismatch Pattern


The one aspect of mismatch patterned pair of crop top and skirt is that you don’t need to be particular about your jewellery, meaning, it’s fine if you don’t wear it. Instead go for a nice kada on your wrists, gemstone studs for your ears and a statement ring.

Plain Crop Top


These are very much loved among the younger crown now. You can wear nice statement jewellery in the same colour as your skirt and look absolutely colourful and lively.

Floral prints are another modern-day favourite. They might look simple, but florals add unprecedented class to the way you look. If you are going for a traditional event, opt for some amount of glitter and/or shimmer with customisation such as zari lace, sequin lace, mirror work, etc.



Crop-shirt-blouses are a no-nonsense type of wear. If you want to strike out for yourself in a social event, o for this. Wear your hair in an updo hairstyle; go for minimal jewellery.



The oh-so comfortable crop-top would be a crop t-shirt. You can opt for a crop t-shirt with a lehenga skirt. Even if both of them are simple, let chunky oxidised jewellery do their magic.

Dupatta Draped Like A Saree Pallu


Probably the most hassle-free style of draping a dupatta on a pair of crop-top and skirt is draping it as a saree pallu. It looks beautiful and so Indian! Don’t forget to wear a pair of good anklets and some bangles to make you look perfectly Indian.

Halter-Neck Top


Halter-neck crop tops are killer! And if you have well-framed shoulders you are surely going to turn many heads. This combo is for all types of moods. So, go for a hairstyle that will suit your mood, such as side-plaits and loose hair hairstyle with make you look bubbly and peppy, whereas a low-bun will add a touch of seriousness to your look.



Kamarpattas have been a part of traditional jewellery for centuries. Now that they are slightly modified and all, the modern young Indian woman also loves it. It also adds the right amount sex-appeal to your outfit.
