If there's one thing we can take away from Fall Fashion Week's runways and street style stars, it's that the influence of the '90s is more prevalent than ever in both the fashion and beauty spheres. After the resurgence of 'mom' jeans, matte brown lips, and chokers, one of fashion's all-time favourite '90s wardrobe essentials is back and better than ever: the crop-top.
Sure, the crop-top has been spotted on runways, celebs, and street style stars for a few seasons now, but the latest rendition of the trend is a full-on belly top that is cut shorter than usual, giving us some serious Christina and Britney flashbacks. For the past few seasons, the ultra sexy look has been spotted on celebs like Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, and supermodel sisters Bella and Gigi Hadid, who offer their own unique takes on how to wear the look in 2016.
Looking to integrate this upgraded version of the crop-top into your summer wardrobe? You're in luck! Because Get The Look is giving you advice on how to wear it three different ways this season, inspired by your favourite stars!
FASHION TREND: THE RETURN OF THE CROP-TOP
As you probably already know, the crop-top is a short and revealing clothing item that requires a certain amount of confidence when it comes to rocking it in everyday life. And while we love how Kendall, Gigi, and Bella wear the trend, you don't have to be a supermodel to wear a belly top with style! Thanks to our three belly-top fashion tips, you can get the look with as much style as the pros.
Want to try rocking a crop-top in everyday life, but find it a bit too revealing for the office? No problem! Try pairing your '90s-inspired belly top with a cool denim or bomber jacket that will keep you stylish and covered up (slightly!). Stick with fabrics like denim in the summer for the ultimate '90s look, or leather when autumn rolls around for an edgier appeal and a look that will go from sexy to stylish in just one step.
PAIR IT WITH HIGH WAIST PANTS
We know - wearing a short belly top along with low-rise pants can feel a little bit too revealing sometimes, which is where high waist pants come in! To highlight your figure, try pairing your fave crop-top with a pair of high waist jeans, leggings or trousers. This will give you a slimmer look by covering your hips and highlighting the smallest part of your waist. The best part? High waist pants are super trendy this season, and show no signs of slowing down!
FIND YOUR STYLE
The best way to ensure maximum comfort and confidence while wearing your crop-top is to stay true to your personal style. If you're into the casual, athletic look, opt for a simple crop-top paired with high waist leggings, sneakers and a baseball cap like Kendall Jenner. For an edgier look, pair it with distressed boyfriend jeans, a choker, and Miley Cyrus-inspired twisted buns on each side of your head for the ultimate all-over '90s look.
If you're into the more laidback, flower child feel, wear your crop-top with a pair of easy going braids and loose trousers that flare at the feet. Finally, if you're looking for the perfect sophisticated, going-out oufit, opt for a fitted pencil skirt and heels to go with your cropped look.
