I recently wrote a post about my fear of crop tops. I had last worn this crop top with high waist leggings and a maxi cardigan as you can see here. Here's another way of wearing it, with loose fit pants and a denim jacket. I think because my pants were wide leg and loose fit and that I was wearing flat shoes, the fact that they were lower than my belly-button didn't quite bother me so much. I'm sorta getting the hang of it and it's not so bad. I won't wear crop tops every single day however I'm not hating the idea of it anymore.
Here is a guide to wearing crop tops and read on for an exciting contest below (it's happening right now!)
Pair your crop top with any bottom that has a high waist. If you’re lucky enough to have a six pack, good for you and what’s your secret. If not, a high waist is also a great way of concealing the fact that you have a little tummy (which is totally normal). Another great reason to wear crop tops with anything high waist, it makes your outfit and you look less trashy…in my opinion anyway. There’s only so much skin you need to be showing.
Add length to your bottom. Crop tops worn with miniskirts or butt-crack skimming shorts just don’t do it for me. Again, I can’t stress the word “trashy” enough. Girls, I hate to break it to ya, but guys will still find you attractive if you’re not showing off every inch of your body. They will and should find you more attractive in fact. And the guys that are not attracted to you when you’re baring less are probably the wrong guys to begin with.
Layer your crop top. If you still feel uncomfortable with options above, add a tank, tee or even a blouse/shirt underneath. It’s a great way to still be on trend and also a great way to wear of being able to wear a crop top during the cooler weather.
