If there's one trend that has taken the wedding world by storm the past few seasons, it's crop tops. And for good reason! They're fun, flirty, modern, and give your look some added versatility. This Galina Signature set is no exception — with a sleek and simple belly-baring top, and an extra-feminine, full-tiered skirt on the bottom the whole outfit is as girly as it is edgy. Whether you're hoping to throw a cool summer wedding or want a playful ensemble for your reception, these two pieces are destined for dancing. And while the whole thing is obviously very current, the voluminous skirt adds an air of formality that makes it extra special for your wedding.
Going for west coast vibes? Throw on a pastel motorcycle jacket with some matching shades for the ultimate California Cool look. You can also dress this look up with some seriously sparkly or colorful heels and shimmering jewels. The choice is yours!
