The crop top trending again

Fashion Trends with ANGELA CHISHIMBA
FASHION trends come and go, and the chain keeps on rolling.

In the 90s, one of the hit trend people rocked was the crop top. These tops are short and revealing, and ideal for a more laid back day.
If worn rightly, crop tops can bring out the confidence in you, leaving you looking neat. However, the top, if not well matched, can leave you looking worn out.
The top is all about chic, and is worn mostly by those with a bold attitude.
It is a well-known fact that such tops look nice on slender bodies but voluptuous people can also pull off this look.
Since crop tops are so versatile, every girl can find a way to sport one in a way that is comfortable for her.
Though the trend is not for everyone because it needs serious features before it can be rocked, if styled properly and with the right length they can emphasise the narrowest part of the body and make you look stylish.
There is a whole range of midriff exposing tops on the market, from peek-a-boo to bra lets, from body hugging to boxy crop tops, to tailor made.
With the coming of trendy Chitenge wear, you can come up with designs that you can give your tailor.
The crop tops can be worn with circle, bandage, midi, and maxi skirts.
Make the outfit flirty in skirts and be business-ready in a blazer. Crop tops can also be worn with high-waisted shorts and high waisted peplum skirts. The key is to pair a short to midi-length cropper with high-waisted skirts or pants so only a relatively modest sliver of skin shows.
Another easy way of wearing your crop top is to just slide on a pair of jeans and pair it with it. You have absolutely nothing to worry about since it goes with all kinds of jeans – be it high waisted, mommy pants, flared or bootcut.
Do you love the idea of crop top, but you are not very thrilled with all of the skin show? Add another layer to it in a way that it does not take away anything from the crop top, yet looks stylish. A leather jacket, denim shirt or a long jacket will do. A perfect monochrome outfit idea.
If you are wider up and a bit narrower at the hips, a halter crop top is the way to go.
To pull off the look, add a statement necklace and other accessories.
Have a blessed weekend.
