5 Crop Top Tips

24 Apr

I was dreading it, but here it is. The crop top trend. In full swing! Since they are pretty much the only types of shirts available in stores now,  I’ve come up with some tips on how to rock it.

Tip 1: Don’t do this. This is not the 90’s. Style has evolved.

Tip 2: Loose/ slouchy crop tops are easier to pull off. The big shirt contrasted against your torso is slimming.

Tip 3: If you are a little self conscious or still uncomfortable with the look of a crop top, layer a blazer or sweater over the outfit. This will give a hint of midriff in the front and still look trendy. I highly recommend this for the smaller crop tops like this one below. Keep it classy, ladies!

Tip 4: Play with silhouettes and shapes. I like the rule where you have the top tight and the bottom loose, or vise versa. The images below show what I mean.
