Photo from Phi Style
Doesn't she look gorgeous? I brought this up on the Chictopia forums not too long ago, and the overall response was that noone wants to show their tummy! I completely understand that. In fact, when I think of a crop top, the photo you see above is what I think of. It took me a while to even find a picture of one that looked acceptable to me where the midriff is shown:

I think this looks cute. But I got a lot of feedback that told me that people were confused on how to wear them, and whether they would feel comfortable. So I decided to whip up a few guidelines:
1. If you're showing your belly, wear pants that fit well. And they should be pants. Shorts will just make it look trashy.
2. Otherwise, feel free to to wear whatever you please, but make sure it's high waisted. that's gonna get you the coverage you want
3. ONCE AGAAAAIN make it your style lolz these things can be glam, rock, or casual.
4. wear the right bra.
5. don't be afraid. like everything, you need to wear this with confidence. Keep your chip up, shoulders back.
This is a nono, btw:
Sorry to say i told you so but....
With that said, if your crop top is lower and you only show the tiniest bit of midriff, this is fine when you have the right body...
Otherwise, stick with everything hitting the middle of the waist.
Now have at it!
