show some skin

crop top

These scandalous shirts that are the ultimate ode to the nineties are back - and in a big way.  They make a huge statement, and are the perfect trend to try this summer.  Styling these babies might seem a little daunting, as you don't want to look like a lady of the night, but if you keep a few key tips in mind you'll achieve that young, fresh, fun look we're all going for this time of year.  

If you want to start out slow with the trend, opt for a top that just shows a tiny bit of tummy and features longer, draped sleeves.  Pair them with a pair of low-rise cut offs, or try a some high-waisted shorts (I'm in love with these as well - especially with the Allsaints or Otis & Maclain top) or a body-con skirt for a bit more coverage.  Just make sure whatever you choose is tailored, as most crop tops tend to have a boxy cut.  If you're more daring and want to go for the teenier crop tops that only cover your chest, then play it up with a high-waisted skirt.  You can also pair it with a chic kimono style sweater to achieve more of a bohemian vibe.  However you work it, it's a fun trend that looks great with a set of tanned legs.

I really love the look of tiny crop tops/bustier tops with high waisted skirts! Great tips for easing into cropped tops :)
