Friday Fashion Fix: Crop Tops

Written by Rose Lally on August 20th, 2014.      0 comments

This week we have a question from our lovely Signature Styler Karen, who asks "The new cropped top, what shape can wear this?"  Our fabulous resident Stylist Rose Lally gives her tips below.  

The crop top is back for the second season and will be totally on trend for the warmer months. Popular in the 90’s, it’s all about showing the midriff and it doesn't have to be itty bitty or have a super toned tum to get this trend looking smoking hot on most body types.

Witchery have a great range of crop tops this season.
8 ways to get the look...
  1. Match with high waisted pants and skirts which will minimize the midriff.
  2. Keep colours tonal or the same pattern on the top or bottom.
  3. Loose fitting trapeze styles worn with tighter fitting skirts, shorts or pants.
  4. Layer with a cardigan or un buttoned shirt.
  5. Long sleeves and high necklines will not make you feel so exposed, pair this style back with a full or circular skirt.
  6. Keep it simple; wear with a long pendant and maxi skirt.
  7. Try a cropped t-shirt with a relaxed pant.
  8. Layer a cropped sweater over a dress or sheer shirt.
