The crop top has been one of the hottest trends of the last several seasons and, judging from the Spring/Summer 2014 runways , it doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Veritable fashionistas everywhere have been pairing the crop top with high-waisted trousers and skirts for a look both high-fashion and celebrity-approved!
From the runway to the red carpet
The crop top. It requires a certain boldness (and most definitely a flat stomach) to pull off, but when done correctly, this super versatile and on-trend item can really take a look to the next level. A well-executed crop top look manages to tow the line between elegance and sex appeal (a perfect duo!) and can be worn for just about any occasion.
It's no wonder, then, that our favorite stars are huge fans of this trend and, lucky for us, their experimentation with the crop top has given us the perfect amount of inspiration for incorporating the piece into our own wardrobes.
How do I wear a crop top?
Whether you love the crop top look but haven't gathered the nerve to purchase one yet, or already have one in your closet but aren't sure how to style it, we've got a few ideas for you to try!
- If you're worried that your stomach isn't toned enough to pull off this look, fear not! The hem of the right crop top will fall at your natural waistline (the smallest part!) and pairing it with a high-waisted skirt or pair of trousers will naturally create a flattering silhouette. If you're still not sold, opt instead for a wearing a crop top over another shirt, but one that is made from sheer fabric.
- For full-on va va voom, feel free to pair your crop top with a pencil or mini skirt. If you're looking for a more demure look, however, choose a voluminous skirt on the bottom for a look that has body without revealing too much of your body. Trousers and boyfriend jeans are also great options!
And there you have it- an easy, on-trend look that will get you red carpet ready in no time!
