The belly-baring trend and thus the crop top has made an impression on us and is very much here to stay. It may, however, be a little intimidating to try, especially for those who think they do not have the 'perfect' body for it. Here is a little secret – anyone can pull them off. Yes, you heard that right. ANYONE. All you need to do is find the right way to style it based on your body type.
If you're not sure how to jump on to the cropper bandwagon, we have a few suggestions to help you.
Without further ado, let's get started!
A crop top is a good way of showing off your curves. If it falls right at your waist, it can be paired with a below-the-knee pencil/A-line skirt.
If you have a narrower chest, a lighter color will make it appear expansive. To minimize your waist and hips, wear a pair of high-waisted jeans.
If you are busty, you can opt to wear a crop over a blouse. Pair the set with a pair of jeans to complete the look.
Lean and long
To keep your body from appearing longer, lessen the amount of skin exposure between your crop and your bottoms. A crop with bright colors, paired with a midi-length skirt is perfect.
If you're on the shorter side, a crop with a lifted hem at the centre gives the illusion of longer legs. A pair of slacks with vertical stripes can help finish the look.
You could also elongate your frame by wearing the same print all over.
If you are gym freak, you can almost never go wrong with a crop. However, a skirt worn with a midriff baring crop top can help create curves and define your waist.
If you're wider on the top, than you are at the hips, try wearing a halter crop. To add to this, wear a skirt that adds volume.
If you thought plus-size ladies can't wear a crop top, you've got it all wrong. A short midi cropper paired with a high waist skirt is the way to go. For a slimming effect, try adding a vest.
