How to Wear Crop Tops According to Your Body Shape
We're quite sure that crop tops won't be going anywhere, yet this closet staple is one of the trickiest items to style. One wrong move, you'll end up looking a little exposed. Apart from this concern, people are also conscious with body shapes and sizes, but the trick here is knowing how to play with cuts, silhouettes, balance, and even colors so anyone can wear one! Check out how you can wear a crop top according to your body shape below.
Boxy crop tops are best for petite girls to add a bit of heft to your frame. But be wary as this can also weigh you down. To avoid this, break the bulk by reaching for tops with a higher cut in the center. Pair it with slimming bottoms to elongate your frame. Finish off with some heels for instant height boost if you're on the shorter side.
If you have a big bust and you're worried about chest spillage, it's best that you layer your cropped top over a button down shirt. The plus side is that you can even rock this to work!
Plus size ladies, it's time you flaunt your gorgeous bodies. The key in achieving absolute comfort in a cropped top is by slipping on a midriff with a high waisted bottom to show off just enough skin. If you feel conscious, you can always throw on a sleeveless vest for a slimming effect.
Balance your look by wearing a printed or textured crop top with a neutral-colored bottom to make you look tall but not too long.
Use colors to balance your narrow torso and your wide hips. Wear light-colored tops to make your top part a bit broader. Pair it with solid-colored bottoms that cinch your waist well so you don’t appear bottom-heavy.
Use cuts to trick the eye in sliming down your shoulders. By wearing a halter crop top, you're redirecting the eye by creating diagonal lines across your torso that slim down the shoulders. Wear this with voluminous skirts or flared pants to keep the balance by adding more volume on the bottom part of your body.
