Lace Crop Top

Lace Crop Top

From elegant to sporty styles, this season the crop top has undergone a great make over. With its focus high on the mid-riff a crop top creates the perfection option for you show off in style! Runways, red carpets, streets or celebrity-blogs, they’re all flooded with crop tops, cropped T-shirts, bralets, bandeaus and corsets paired with high-waisted skirts or trousers lending this fun and flirty style a very feminine charm!

With a sexy-meets-chic look, the 90s midriff-baring trend ruled the runway in various lengths and diverse styles. Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway and Taylor Swift turned heads and grabbed attention with their unique versions of this trend at Met ball and Teen choice awards.

While this trend looks this great on celebrities and runway models, is it difficult to pull off this trend per se?

Here’s your guide to bare minimum and rock the crop top

  • Layer a long sweater with a curved hem over a shirt for a sporty and modern look.
  • Crop tops with boxy cuts are great for women with a pear-shape body since the top does not cling to the silhouette. For a flattering appeal, choose a crop top that ends a bit above your natural waist and pair it with a fitted high waist skirt.
  • Wear crop T-shirts with pencil skirts exposing only a sliver of skin for a fashion-forward look. A high neckline usually looks elegant and chic. Take for instance the curvy beauty like Kim Kardashian who wears a long crop top ending at her natural waist paired with a pencil skirt to accentuate her curves.
  • For a vintage look, opt for a long and loose-fitted top along with a high waisted maxi skirt.
  • Keep the style simple with monochrome or complementary colors, avoiding prints.
  • If you have a petite frame, opt a top with structured shoulders and high waist trousers.
  • For a sporty look wear short crop tops baring your super-toned mid riff along with low waist trousers.
  • Pair halter crop top with full skirts to highlight your waist.
  • For a stylish and edgy appeal, layer bralet over a long sleeve shirt and fitted midi skirt.
