While visions of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera (circa the ‘90’s) performing in midriff-baring tops to tunes we still love to sing and dance to fill our heads, the new crop top, like the former teen idols, have somewhat matured too. Crop tops today are chic, sophisticated and can be ultra-posh when worn the right way. Please pass up on t-shirt bras and super low cut jeans. Crop tops should flaunt a sliver of a bare midriff in a stylish, tasteful and wearable way. Here’s an uncropped guide on how to look classy in crop tops.
When wearing a body-clinging top, play with proportions and partner it with an A-line skirt. The volume of the classic full skirt gives you curves and that coveted, hourglass shape. You can achieve the same effect with a maxi skirt or wide leg pants.
