The Crop Top: Love it or Lose it?

imageIn the fashion world, it’s “what is old is new again” all of the time. Everywhere I turn, it seems like the cropped top is one of those “new” old trends that’s coming back with a vengeance! They were on the runways (Alexander Wang & Victoria Bartlett, for instance), in tons of editorials, and now it seems like the lynch pin of ’90s fashion is even popping into stores! After years of t-shirts and tops getting longer and longer, are we ready to raise the shirt hemline, bare the midriff again, and show off some skin? While the trend seems sexily adorable on tall Eastern European models in the pages of Vogue, is it going to be able to translate to mere mortals? Crop tops can be a great option with high-waisted pants and skirts, as you don’t have to tuck in all that excess fabric. But what happens with tighter pants? What’s going to hide a woman’s worst enemy… the muffin top? Just the thought of wandering the city streets with my belly bare makes me want to lock myself in my apt with my ab roller!
