How to wear it: the crop top

The crop top craze is continuing into the summer, but let’s be honest, not everyone can pull off the midriff-baring look. And not everyone wants to. The good news is you can take part in this summery trend without showing any skin at all. Carly Gatzlaff, stylist and owner of À La Mode Wardrobe Consulting, shows us how.

1. Match your crop top with high-waisted skirts, shorts or pants.

2. For a more youthful look, match a crop top with a pair of shorts. For a more mature look, stick with a straight skirt.

3. Layers look great over crop tops. Look for one that is slightly shorter or longer than the top.

4. For a more conservative look, start with a flowy or shift cut. Pick materials that have a drape to better show off your shape, while still being classy.
