Fashion lust of the week: cropped tops paired with high waists. While this look may not be for everyone, there are so many variations on this style that are currently coming out, that I truly believe almost anyone can find a variation of this outfit to rock. The key is pairing the right combination of cropped top with high waisted skirt/short/or pant. Firstly you want to make sure you find a top that is cropped at the most flattering point on your stomach or waist, and secondly that you are only showing a small sliver of skin (this is crucial, otherwise your look can drastically turn from flirty and fun to garish and gaudy). My particular favorite variations on the newly popular crop-top craze involve girlie floral patterns (such as on the Dolce & Gabbana runways this spring), or tribal prints with defined structures. So go ahead and give it a try. You might just discover this is a new summer trend you love! Celebrity fans: Zoe Kravitz, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus. Below are three links. The first are two great options for you to try: a sweet lacy option from Free People, and another more expensive tribal pattern from Mara Hoffman (that is simply drool-worthy). The third is a link to Selena Gomez at the Teen Choice Awards wearing the Dolce & Gabbana ensemble fresh from the runway. Enjoy!
