#ThrowbackThursdayfor today is a fashion trend that has been around for ages and is showing no sign of being left behind any time soon. The Crop Top trend was around in the 80’s, 90’s and has been around since then. The prints and patterns that can be used for crop tops make it a timeless wardrobe staple. Bra tops, ruffled bandeaus and corsets have a distinct 1990s feel, especially when paired with high-waisted trousers.

Like so many other styles, wearing a crop top is all about proportion play. To strike a balance with your tinier top, wear a high-waisted skirt or high-rise trousers on the bottom. That way, only a sliver of skin will be showing and you can keep this trend feeling ladylike.

Pair with a Pencil

Another key to pulling off the crop top is pairing it with a more conservative bottom. Since the pencil skirt is the epitome of sleek and sophisticated style, we love how it looks with a crop top.

If your tummy feels too exposed with a bare midriff, try layering an open cardigan, jacket, or blazer over your top so that only a hint of skin is showing in the front.

Colour it down
