The crop top trend has caught up since quite some time now. Everyone from Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone to Parineeti Chopra recently, have been sporting it.
If you have been to any Forever21 store in the last one month or so, you would have only seen crop tops all over the store, be it the basic black & white to Aztec, floral, lace, cut out, bandage, polka dots, stripes, and in all shapes and sizes.
Or for that matter, even at any fashion e-commerce site, all you see these days are crop tops in their ‘New Arrivals’ and ‘Best Sellers’ section.
What can you pair crop tops with :
Basically, you can pair a crop top with almost everything. There are also variations in designs and patterns like sleeveless, full sleeves, criss cross back, bandage design, lace cut outs, etc.
If you are someone who has killer abs or a completely flat stomach, you should always live in crop tops. I mean if you have it, flaunt it.
But others can also sport a crop top with some cheat tricks.
Here are a few pointers to keep in mind:
Always wear high waisted bottoms, that will essentially cover the tummy/problem area.
Peek a boo. Its ok if there is not much gap between your crop top and bottoms, we want it that way, with just a peek a boo of skin.
Wear it under your dungarees. Looks casual chic plus you are not even showing much skin.
Layer it. Wear a broad boxy crop top over your camisole.
Matching separates is also in trend these days i.e crop top with a midi skirt/shorts/pencil skirt,etc It is basically same print and fabric, just separated into two pieces.
Here is how few of your Bollywood beauties sported the crop top trend.
Priyanka Chopra carried this relaxed monochrome look with a boxy crop top and slouchy polka dot pants, adding the geeky glasses.
Deepika wore it the traditional way with a lehenga. Quite an interesting combo. Though actually crop tops are nothing but cholis revisited.
Alia Bhatt layered her cropped bustier and skirt with a blazer.
And a few celebs sporting the matching separates trend.
I wore this leopard print crop top with a navy blue pencil skirt sometime back. And one polka dots, one pineapple print white crop top and a black mustache print one are on their way 😀
