She styled her black vintage bw stripe crop top with a black Dolce Vita snakeskin ankle boots, black old beanie hat, and black Young Hungry Free bw mesh varsity jacket jacket. Since then, Cotton Look Tops have grown in popularity as bloggers from Los Angeles, Hong Kong, and Hong Kong have discovered them. Popular brands of Cotton Look Tops are Target, cotton on, Zara, H&M, and Forever 21.
