DYI - Black and White Stripe Crop

Malibu, California

Top: Onzie, Leggings: DYI

The classic black and white stripe print is a favorite in my closet and DYI's crops fit right in. Every time I wear these I get a huge confidence boost because I get so many compliments on them!  Cue hands-over-eyes monkey emoji. 

FABRIC: I always forget how light weight these are and am pleasantly surprised about this on hot days. They are super spandex-y and feel similar to a high quality swimsuit material. 

BOOTY FACTOR: I'm not sure if its the combination of stripes and the lift from the cut, but these do wonders for your booty. Even with their light weight fabric, they have passed my down-dog test, and don't seem to be see through! 

FIT / SIZING: I have been so into high-waist everything lately, and these are extra high waist. It's great because I don't feel over exposed when I pair them with only a sports bra. But oh my gosh these run so small. I've worn these multiple times thinking I had an XS and was bummed I didn't have them in my regular S. I just double checked though and they are smalls! So I would definitely just go up a size so you're not squeezing into them. A second reason to go a size up: I am constantly pulling these down because they ride up in the front... yes I'm talking about the dreaded camel-toe, ladies. Just make sure to check yo self. I've been eyeing a pair of their long length leggings, so I'll be sure to order a size up and check back to see if this helps. 

WHERE TO WEAR: I don't usually wear crops but these are perfect on a hot day for doing a beach workout, or working up a sweat with a run or cardio class like Dailey Method's Interval class!
