New Ways to Wear The Crop Top This Spring

Ready to change how you think about the midriff-baring crop?  Amongst spring's most talked about pieces showing a major shift in proportion is the crop top.  Even if you once swore you'd never bare your navel, this silhouette manages to look both refined and truly new.  Check out the three unique and sophisticated looks I've created below.

The Layered Look

You'll need a crop with wide sleeves and a fitted shirt with longer ones as your underpinning.  Keep your lower half simple with a straight skirt that hits at the knee.

Just Grazing a Higher Waist

Since the hem of your top kisses the edge of the waistband, think of the combo as less about navel baring and more about emphasizing your waist without having to tuck anything in. Also key: the contrast of a tailored top with looser pants softens the total picture.

High Above a Flowy Skirt

If you're comfy showing a slice of skin, go for this runway take on the abbreviated top, which pairs it with a low-slung breezy skirt that accentuates the hips.
