We have been fighting this trend, believe us. The Crop top is not generally something that people wear willingly but as I am sure many of you have noticed this is all beginning to change.
Once firmly stuck in the 90′s, in the Saved by The Bell and Clarisa Explains it all tv shows along with baggy trousers and large shirts, the crop top has clawed it’s way out of the pits of it’s multi-coloured-midriff-showing-hell-hole to coax someone into selling it again.
The nightmare is that we are actually starting to like them. However liking them is one thing – wearing them and having the figure to wear them is quite another.
Ladies, we have had it pretty easy lately with fashion trends. Most things have not needed too much of the body on show to be fashionable and everything on the whole has been pretty flattering up until now. Now though you need to start some serious sit ups and maybe drink a whole lot of lemon juice and cayenne pepper to pull off this style.
So – back to this pesky, tiny item. The crop top needs to be colourful or structured this time around. It needs to stop at the middle, which is the one saving grace as if you don’t have the flattest belly you could possibly get away with some high waisted bottoms to cover up what you don’t want anyone seeing. We’ve not even started on the fact that you’re going to be freezing…
All in all an impractical, unflattering item that no one wanted back but either way we’re sure you’ll learn to love them again much like leggings, either that or learn to spit on the 17 year olds that are looking great in them so we have rounded up a few options for you if you want to take the belly on show plunge.
