What I love about this trend is that you don’t need flat belly or abs, as there are many simple ways how to make it cover the skin and keep away eyes from your belly. For all body-positive people, I am sharing this easy guide on ways how to wear crop top.
Today’s crop tops look very different from the cropped tops of the sixties. We have an array of styles that are all fashioned in a stylish and trendy way. The first crop top was introduced in the early sixties, by Dolly Parton in a tight black patterned crop top with a large bow on it.
Before the crop tops, the fashion was a bit different. In the early sixties, we had a huge variety of dresses that were crafted using fabrics such as taffeta, silk and lace. The skirts were high up to the knees and could be manufactured in almost any shape. This has changed a lot with the introduction of dresses to flaunt your legs and crop tops to highlight your upper torso without any excess fabric getting in your way.
The designs have evolved over time from extremely toned body hugging shirts to casual shirts and even formal shirts. Today, we have an array of styles that are subtly different from each other but still immensely popular.
Ways To Wear Crop Tops
There are many ways you can wear crop tops for women:
1. Wear a crop top with a pair of denim shorts
Denim shorts look very trendy when combined with crop tops. The crop tops will not be visible in the first few inches above your waist, and that is because they are so tight that they cling to your lower tummy area. Thus, it shows off your legs from above the knee down to the ankles or even below depending on the pair of denim shorts you have opted for.
2. Pair it up with high waisted pants
High waisted pants are known to give out an elegant and classy vibe which is why many women love to wear them. The crop tops can go with the pants as well, only that the top will be worn a lot lower on the waist. This look works especially well when the pants are tailored in a way that makes them look slimmer at the top and loose at the bottom.
