Crop-tops are back! And they are back in a big way! And definitely will stay for a longer time now. They are like those fashions must haves which are great to look on to but when it comes to trying, an anxious feeling dawns upon of how to rock a crop top.
They majorly worked out in the 1980s cult classic Flash dance, they showed off Madonna’s washboard abs time and time again; and they regularly clothed our favourite teen idols Britney, Christina, and the Spice Girls. Then they disappeared for a while, probably off to vacation but now, the crop top is back and has become a versatile item in our wardrobe.
When the sea of crop tops initially reappeared, we wondered: Did a perpetrator come in and hack off the bottoms of every shirt in this store? Isn’t it too revealing to show so much skin? We felt slightly aghast, a little shy, but all the while: curious.
Could we pull off this trend, because even if we are totally comfortable to show off a little skin on our belly or are always ready to try out different styles, the truth is , there are not many places or venues where a crop top may be considered appropriate.
Let’s check out five cool crop-top tricks that make them easy and comfortable to wear;
Match it with a midi skirt: Midi skirts are another huge trend this year, as showcased by designers. The shin-length skirts may seem conservative, but matching one with a fun crop top makes the look modern and young, fun, flirty and guaranteed to look amazing with a patterned crop top.
You can wear it with a pencil skirt: You might think your pencil skirt should only be reserved for the office, but think again! A patterned pencil skirt that hits at the knees and above the belly button can be a super chic look when paired with a crop top. Because you’ll be covered up below the waist, you can wear a riskier crop top, perhaps with some daring cut outs.
Add some flair to it: Wearing a neutral crop top under your favourite big flannel shirt will give your look a totally chill vibe. This is a cute look for those cool summer nights when your daytime crop top isn’t warm enough. By throwing on a flannel like over a T-shirt crop top, you can both look good and be comfortable on those nights around the porridge nights.
Make it flirty in a Maxi skirt: A fun, patterned maxi skirt is a must-have in your closet. Paired with a solid-colored crop top, it’s an easy look to dress up or down. Adding statement jewellery to this look will instantly dress it up.
