I've seen a lot of less-than flattering outfits out and about due to this more recent trend, and I've put together some hints and tips for how to get the most out of your crop top.
1. Get abs. Okay, so this is probably not going to happen for the majority of us. Hell, I LOVE the gym… but pizza though?!S The other steps might help though.
2. Go high waisted, it's the most flattering and shows just enough skin.
3. If you're going low waisted like I have in this outfit, (High waisted jeans never fit me because my waist is tiny in comparison to my mammoth hips!! Too unproportional to ever fit them :( ) then opt for some jeans in a size up, to minimise muffin top. (These jeans could have done with being ever so slightly looser to be as flattering as possible to be honest.)
And whatever you do, don't wear a crop top with low waisted, tight, short shorts. I've seen it done and there's ever so much bulging skin everywhere it's just plain unflattering.
I like this crop top because it's slightly longer than most of the others I've seen. It's a cheeky Topshop number.
I put my hair in a half bun because I was feeling super 90s. I feel like this hairstyle is going to have a moment very soon, after seeing it cropping up here and there. Hold tight!
These jeans (not the best fitting but worth the price!) were £7 out of Primarni. As usual with my weird shape, they are looser at the bottom because my knee down are a size 8 and my knee up is a 10. Awkward as anything. I rolled them up to hide the ill-fit and added a Primarni belt to keep it all together. The sling backs are Primark also. I'm a cheapskate.
