There is always a time and a place for a cropped top. Middrift is not appropriate for church (ahem: Kendall Jenner), and typically not for the office (too distracting).
However, when paired with a high-waisted bottom, the proportions are flattering and interesting. I paired this Fashion to Figure cropped top with these Jibri pants and an AVA&VIV blazer for a comfortable and fun look.
I love how the shape of these pants give my figure a different shape, and escentuate my waist. Just a side note: You will want to get the “mini slouch” pants if you are petite or already have wide hips. I am not too hippy, so I opted for the full slouch.
It’s all about proportions: If you are going to do a cropped top, make sure the look is balanced.
Here are some tips to slaying this look:
-Pairing this look with a jacket or blazer creates a slimming effect and offers more coverage. Try taking the jacket off for a great happy hour look.
-Opt for a cropped top that hits you right below your natural waist. Don’t opt for the skimpiest of tops – not the time/place.
-Pick a top with a high neckline to avoid showing too much skin.
Most importantly, have fun. Pair a cropped top with fun prints, midi skirts or pencil skirts.
