She styled her black American Apparel leotard top with a black handmade high-waisted skirt, black H&M trench coat, and black thrifted lace-up booties shoes. Since then, Urban Tops have grown in popularity as bloggers from Manila, Los Angeles, and Jakarta have discovered them. Popular brands of Urban Tops are Urban Outfitters, Topshop, Zara, Forever 21, and H&M.
