5 Ways to Wear Crop Tops

Crop tops have been all over stores and runways for two seasons now, and they don’t seem to be going anywhere soon. One major misconception about crop tops is that you have to have a so-called “perfect body” to wear them (whatever that means!). This is simply not true. Crop tops don’t have to bare your midriff like in the Britney Spears “Slave 4U” days. Today’s crop tops can be worn in a variety of different ways, from exposing a fair bit midriff, to showing no skin at all. However, the number one trick to pulling off a crop top is to balance your proportions. If the top is small, makeup for it by covering most of your bottom half.
