Cropped

Giving the crop top another chance

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.
