I’m The Cream Of The Crop, I Rise To The Top…


Poor Little It Girl's Pinterest Inspiration - Crop Tops!

There’s a lot of buzz happening this season about crop tops. While my 18 year old self had no problem strutting my tight tummy to all the boys in the yard back in my early college days, now that I’m about to turn 28 I’m not sure I can rock a midriff look the way I used to. Despite my old age, however, I’m not ready to give up on this bare belly trend just yet. There are two tricks to pulling this off: 1) Pair crop tops with longer skirts or pants so you aren’t showing too much skin. 2) No belly button. Something about a crop top with a belly button showing is a little too Britney Spears “I’m A Slave For You” so hide that old belly ring hole (we all have one!) and show only a couple inches of skin in your midsection.

    The aqua gingham is Identical to an outfit I bought at Target in the 90s when I was in 6th or 7th grade! The only difference is mine were shorts.

    It’s actually nice to see the crop tops and the floral early 90s prints coming back. I remember being a small child and going shopping for one dress similar to this http://www.asos.com/Asos/Asos-Smock-Dress-In-Toile-De-Jouy-Print/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=2905161&SearchRedirect=true&SearchQuery=Toile

    Unfortunately, Grunge Came into Style and Destroyed many years of fashion. They were the blank and empty years…..the striped shirts, the spaghetti strap t-shirts…awful…just awful….

    You had me at Britney Spears. Been wanting to try this trend but haven’t found the right pieces. I think it would require to buy both a new top and bottom though. Still on a hunt for the perfect amount of skin to show.

    I love me some crop tops lately! I embraced a sliver of bare midriff recently in Miami and I can’t wait to give it another go. (I even ordered a second cute ruffled crop top from Asos!) Loving all of these looks!!
