Elle Strauss, Shopbop's Fashion Director, before Rag & Bone (I think!), NYC, September 2013.
Recreate Elle's look (kind of):
Another way to wear a fitted crop top: team with a high-waisted skirt and classic leather jacket.
Fitted crop top (I think Zara did a cross-over crop top like the one Elle is wearing last season) Blaque Label Crop top, Endless Rose crisscross crop top, Roland Mouret cropped cutout stretch-knit top, Topshop V neck cutaway crop top, Carven cropped camo print top, ASOS wrap front crop top or Finders Keepers Winter Bird Bra (these are a little more brief but would work under a sheer shirt for summer).
Printed skirt: Carven printed crepe skirt, Creatures of the Wind embellished kick back skirt, Topshop embellished x-ray flower skirt, Tibi Eiffel tower-print skirt or NW3 Country skirt in Japanese kimono print
