Fashionista NOW: Chic In Crop Tops Fashion Inspiration

Want to wear crop tops for dressy occasions but don’t know how? Let us help you.

Crop tops trigger intense debates and we all know that the act of midriff-baring among mere mortals like us can be tough to pull or stomach.

If you’re not crazy about channeling the Britney Spears’ breed of crop tops and their obligatory navel-flaunting, rejoice because there is a stylish way to wear crop tops even if you’re in a possession of a rebellious tummy.

And if you’re wondering how that is exactly done with a promise that it prevents you from looking like a sad try-hard and only, just a demure peek of stomach flesh is allowed visible, well, my dear it’s so easy that you’d be ready to try it in an instant.

The more subdued and perfectly wearable way to carry off a serious outfit with a crop top is to partner it with a high waisted skirt or a pair of high rise pants.

It is as mentioned by Lauren Conrad, a play of proportions and that I completely agree. So, go on and offset the shortness of the crop top with a bottom that gives extra coverage up a few inches above your navel.

This way, no accidental navel exposé will occur and you may allow yourself to breathe deeply and relax as you gain control on how much flesh you’re willing to showcase.

And if you find the figure-hugging crop top variety constricting, opt for a loose boxy cut style instead.

As always, to get a visual imagery on just how to wear crop tops perfect for formal to semi-formal dressy occasions, feast your eyes upon the lookbooks below:

And now, to the selected polyvore sets for the elegant route in styling the tricky trend:

Let it go.

In a neutral palette of black, blue and brown, the pairing of a high neck crop top with a maxi skirt is easy to pull off regardless of figure type. Slim to curvy ladies can sport this uber chic look outto a brunch or a dinner date with that special someone.

Tricky Trend CROP TOP

The cropped crepe blouse paired with a tiered skirt above is great for boyish to slender frame figures. The design of the skirt adds more volume where needed and the boxy cut crop top adds curve to the waistline giving an appearance of a ladylike frame.

Finish with mesh heels for a super chic look that can be transitioned from day to night.

For a bold and sophisticated look that stays within the monochromatic territory, cue in the set above. Pair a zig zag print crop top with a skirt worn in a high waisted style and finish off with a pair of collar cross sandal stilettos.

“Style gives the feeling of a certain period in history. Fashion is a parasite on style. He is the horrid little man who tells you last winter’s coat may be in perfect condition but you can’t wear it because it has a belt.”Elizabeth Hawes
