How to Make Crop Tops Work on You Photo by Colin Armstrong

The crop top is in and you can see it everywhere. You will see celebrities wearing it at glitzy award ceremonies and the woman in the street rocking it at the club. It is a daring piece of attire that can make you look either hot or tacky. If you are thinking about trading in the skater dress for a crop top, here are some ideas for how you can make it work on you.

Don't Enhance the Sex Appeal
It is already a sexy piece of attire as it reveals that subtle piece of skin. That's enough. You don't need to go any further with it. It might be tempting to add a pair of hot pants or a mini skirt to it, but this is only going to leave you looking tacky. You don't want to look like you are trying too hard. Leave something to the imagination.

Curvy Girls Welcome
It's easy to look at crop tops and assume they're designed for stick thin women. Not the case. Kim Kardashian has a few curves and she has worn this look frequently. You can make it work on you because the crop top will only flaunt those curves.

Take note, you have to wear it with the right outfit to avoid adding on extra pounds. Keep less flattering areas of your body pinched away, or flattering could soon turn to unflattering.

Keep it Simple and Formal
You do not have to go all out and show off your whole belly. We do not live on the set of Pretty Little Liars. The crop top can work with practically any event you want. It can even be worn at a formal event during the day. Rather than combining it with a short skirt, you could combine it with a dress of the same colour. This gives the effect of a full-length dress, with the 'peek-a-boo' effect in the middle.

Simplicity usually offers the best looks when it comes to the crop top.

Aim for the Proper Fit
To really make this clothing work, it has to match your body perfectly. You would not pick up a pencil skirt that is the wrong size, so you cannot do it with a crop top. The crop top is for the woman who wants to show something up. If you purchase the wrong size, all those parts of you that you prefer not to show will be visible. Furthermore, it can make getting out of the car and moving around difficult.

Do not be afraid to go up a size, if necessary.

Confidence Will Make it Work
Wearing revealing clothing is all about fooling yourself and everyone else. If you are not confident and comfortable in your own skin, this is not the garment for you. If you are confident, even wearing it with a few extra pounds can be flattering. You do not have to have the tight stomach of a fitness model.

Don't feel as if you have to wear one. Go as conservative or as open as you like, and experiment with the different crop top styles.
