If the spring 2014 shows taught us anything, it’s that crop tops aren’t going anywhere, any time soon. Sure, we’re huge fans of how cool and chic they look on the models, but the idea of wearing one ourselves? We have a gut feeling we’d be feeling a little self conscious about well, our gut.
Before you start running to the gym or just giving up on the season’s hottest trend altogether, listen up: all you need is a few styling tips to pull the look off in your everyday life. Nope, there’s no need to kill yourself over too many crunch reps. Pairing a loose piece with a fitted piece is a surefire way to rock the look, while keeping that glimpse of your tummy totally tasteful.
