Whether you're still working your way to a flat stomach or you have a muffin top you want to hide, there are ways for you to wear this trendy piece and still be confident in it.

 1  Try the boxy crop top.

Wearing a boxy crop top won't make you feel conscious about your top bunching up in unwanted areas and it will only show some skin when you raise your arms.

 2  Pair it with high-waist bottoms.

If you only have the regular midriff baring top, pair it with some high-waist jeans or shorts and even skirts (midi skirts work best in balancing the look) so you can adjust and keep it as high or low as you want.

 3  Wear long-sleeved crop tops.

 If you also feel a bit self conscious about your arms, a long-sleeved crop top will help cover them up, and prevent from showing too much skin if your midriff is already exposed (also good to wear for chilly days). 

 4  Put on an eye-catching cover-up.

If you don't want all eyes on your midriff, then wear a bold or patterned cover-up to draw attention away from your stomach or mid-section.

 5  Layer on overalls.

Wearing overalls or shortalls over your crop top hides your stomach and only shows a minimal part of your sides (depending on your crop top).
