They have the money and the body, the fame and the beauty and it seems that everything they do make the rest of us mere mortals feel so utterly normal, sometimes even making us feel bad about ourselves, and now that the crop top has taken over the fashion scene and our favorite celebrities are wearing this statement piece so effortlessly, it seems like they have taken a further step ahead of us.
The good news is, you can rock a crop top like a celebrity and look really good — you just have to know your way around this piece and with the following tips and tricks, you might just get a step closer to the stars.
Before we get into the fashion…
Let’s not beat about the bush here and talk only fashion because let’s face it, if you’re going to eat bread all day and sit for hours at a desk without working out, then chances are your abs are nowhere to be seen. If you are naturally prone to gain weight around your midriff area, then steering clear of certain foods a week or so before wearing that crop top is a good idea.
Foods like bread and pasta, dairy and certain vegetables can really bloat your belly so sticking to lean protein and non-bloating vegetables can help slim down your waistline. Moreover, pumping up the cardio to really work your belly and doing a few crunches to tighten your core are all things to help you have a tighter midriff area.
Pair the crop top with flowy numbers
Once your diet and exercise regimes are set, then you can start playing the fashion game. One way to wear a crop top and look good is by pairing it with flowy pieces such as a midi skirt or loose fitting shorts, especially if it is a tight fitting crop top. The flowy piece will distract from the tightness of the top and give your look the balance it needs.
Go all tight
When you don’t do flow, then take a style cue from Kim K and pair your tight crop top with a form fitting skirt. This look needs a lot of cardio to work well but if you have got the body then you should definitely go for it.
Pair it with a kimono or a cardigan
When your crop top exposes those annoying love handles at the back, then try wearing a loose fitting kimono vest or a cardigan to hide this part.
It’s all about that hint
You don’t have to go all out and show your whole midriff to work the crop top trend. You can easily look amazing by donning a top that shows only a hint of your belly just like the tops from AJE. This trend is a daring one and you should work it in a way that flatters your body so you should expose as much as you feel comfortable and confident with.
