Crop tops are two things: intimidatingly cute and they always seem to look good on someone else. Many girls look at it on a model online and think they can pull it off but when the real thing comes and they try it on, something just doesn’t feel right and the poor top is sent to a lifetime of eternity into the depths of your closet. Whilst crop tops may look completely normal for girls who are petite, the purpose of these teeny tops are to show a hint of skin but what if you’re a little bit shy? Here are some styling tips on how you can rock the cropped tee and still look polished without showing too much skin!
While flat belly also comes with a license to wear these babies, cropped tops surprisingly go really really well with high-waisted short. Long pants can be a tad bit overkill. No more worrying if you’ve forgotten to tuck in your top. Pair it with belted cuffed shorts to add sophistication to the look.
Keep that belly hidden but layer your outfit. Experiment with different textures, colors and material especially in our tropical weather. You can also opt to wear a maxi skirt and pull it up a little higher than usual to turn it into a tube dress, that way you’d still be wearing a two piece outfit. No sweat!
Pairing a cropped tee with outerwear such as a cardigan, blazer or knitted top can give the impression that you’re serious but with a hint of flirtatiousness.
Here’s how you should not wear the cropped top. The rule is if you’re wearing a tight top, pair it with a loose, flowy bottom. If you’re wearing skinny jeans or a bodycon skirt, opt to wear a looser top.
Another way you can get a cropped top without spending is to get any existing button up blouse or plaid top in your wardrobe and tie the ends together like Sarah Jessica Parker here does!
With all the tips above, fear not the crop top and make it a motivation to get that perfect belly!
