In case you would like to make sure that your wardrobe will be trendy in this season, there is one item that can not miss from it: the crop top. The advantage of the piece is that it will give any outfit a new and interesting look. In simple terms just any boring old top could be made interesting through a cut hem.This is a trend that makes people realize that having basic items doesn’t necessarily mean that they must be boring.
You might have recognized the similarity between this style and the style of the 90s, but there is something that you have to keep in mind: it isn’t tacky to wear such items because they are coming back in force.

The only difference is that this time the tops are cropped in a way in which they stay classy and elegant.
We may have seen the sleeveless midriff tops all over the runways and can be worn with just any bottom and they still look luxurious. In the majority of the cases these kinds of tops are simple and their only important feature is their color.
When it comes to the color there are some designers that opted for the pastels, such as Altuzarra, Preen and Phillip Lim. There were also some bolder colors, such as lime, smartly used by Nanette Lepore. Colored metallic hues were also present on the runways of Antonio Berardi. These hues remind us of the colors that the cars had back in the 1950s.
Show some skin
In the case of the fashion shows the crop tops have been in the spotlight, and the rest of the items faded into the background. Some of the designers decided to show some skin, while others decided to be a bit more conservative, such as Antonio Berardi and Phillip Lim.
The tops that they came up with weren’t showing a lot of skin, but still they have a downside: in case you have a big belly, you can be sure that these kinds of tops will make it look even larger. Although this may sound a bit harsh, we have to keep in mind that this style isn’t suitable for the oversized people.
If you think that you have the right size for this fashion, then you should make sure that you give it a try and you should make the best of it.
