When it comes to Spring trends that make people nervous, crop tops are at the top of the list. The short-hemmed shirts put all the attention on the midriff, which can be terrifying if you haven’t been to the gym since last year. Believe it or not: this isn’t a trend you have to sit out. I’ve got a few tips for rocking crop tops for every shape and size.
If you have a pooch:
The dreaded pooch doesn’t have to keep you from embracing crop tops. Pair your top with a high-waisted skirt or shorts to keep the focus on the tightest part of your tummy. This is also the perfect trick for my curvy girls.
If you want to hide your stomach:
Take a cue from Rihanna and wear your crop top with a fitted tank top or dress underneath. The layering trick is perfect for camouflaging your midsection.
If you have a smaller bust:
Crop tips with a print, ruffle detailing or even pockets will add volume and give the illusion of a fuller bust. Low-cut crop tops with built-in cups will also help to give you a little boost.
If you have a larger bust:
Choosing the right fabric is key. Stretch material will expand to fit your curves comfortably without bunching up or rising.
So now that Spring is finally here, which trend are you swooning over?
