This summer is the summer of crop tops. I know, not the easiest thing to wear when you aren't a size 2 right? It can be a little tricky fitting this trend into your wardrobe BUT I found the trick or tricks to rocking a crop top and feeling amazing while you do it. I was once a skinny mini back in the day but my metabolism has slowed down and to be honest, I like cake. Lots of cake. I still love wearing trendy crops, so I had to find my own solution to wearing these beloved crop tops. Check out my tips and my latest look.
Cover-Up: I always add some sort of sweater or kimono while wearing a crop top. It gives me a little more confidence because my whole waist line isn't showing. I choose light materials to use as a cover-up because obviously I don't want to sweat.
Elastic Waistband: I pair my crop top with a bottom that has an elastic waist band so I have a little give. No one wants a muffin top while trying to look cute.
Over The Belly Button: This is KEY! The space between your chest and belly button is probably the most flattering part, so work with it. Most people think their waistline is actually where their hips are but it's not. Your waistline is much higher and it may not be 24" but it can still be complimented.
I hope my tips help and give you a little more confidence to wear a crop top! Here's my full look!
