The 90’s called and it wants its midriff back. How to wear the crop top, circa now.


The crop top is the equivalent of a sartorial mind field. Confusing. Controversial. And necessary complicated.

But I’m giving the bandeau a chance – it’s a 90’s revival, circa now. So how to successfully pull off a flash of midriff without feeling like you’ve engaged in a time warp?

The key is relaxed simplicity.

Go for a crop top that’s actually comfortable – strapless, with sleeves, a relaxed cut or form fitting – just go with a style that doesn’t have you pulling at the hem every 10 minutes. I’m all about a bandeau with plenty of stretch.

Add a strong dose of easy-going cool with trainers; aka the easiest way to make even the slinkiest outfit feel casual.

If you are wary of having too much skin on show, throw on an oversized jacket.
