We all know a high waisted midi skirt is the perfect match for a crop top.  However  layering a mini dress or longer top over a midi skirt also creates a chic, lean, silhouette.

I’m all about versatility and using different layering ideas to extend the use of items in my wardrobe.

To finish off this outfit, I’m using my new oversized clutch from Hansen and Gretel.  I love  that there is a hand strap across the front, it’s an interesting but also practical addition.

Fashion is fickle. Hottest items swiftly become yesterdays look. And as quickly as those trends disappear they appear again.

The 90s stomach bearing crop top is back with a vengeance. The problem with the crop top- It looks ADORABLE on the hanger. It’s small, it’s cute, you just want to take it home with you.  Once you have it home with you, what do you wear it with?

Here are some styling tips to make that crop top work.

Balance proportions

Crop tops by definition are tiny pieces of clothing. The key to keeping crop tops classy is to ensure that you pair it bottoms that have coverage.

Midi skirts are a great pairing as well as wide legs pants or culottes.

Only show bit of tummy skin

Models look amazing in crop tops paired with low slung slouch pants.  But for the rest of us mere mortals, it is much less intimidating and more comfortable to buy crop tops that end at the top of your ribs or belly button and to pair it with highwaisted bottoms.  This look is universally flattering. It elongates the leg and also focuses the eye on the skinniest part of your waist.

Choose a style that you’re comfortable in

In the end confidence rules.  There are so many crop top styles of out at the moment-  figure hugging options,  looser, figure skimming tops and all are all cute in their own right.  Go with what you’re comfortable in, because confidence makes an outfit.
