The New Super Cropped Top
This is one of those trends, that I’m just not sure if I’m comfortable with- quite yet. It makes you second guess yourself. Like would people think- “Oh my word. Did that girl just forget to put on a shirt and then proceed to go out in public?!” Well the answer here, my dears, is no. The “bra top” trend has been jumping out at me left and right, from my favorite magazines and stores, to designers like Emersonmade (shown above) and Topshop (shown below).
These “tops” (if you even want to really call them that) come in all shapes and sizes. I personally think the Emersonmade one is absolutely darling, and the pairing of the cardigan and high-waisted skirt is utter perfection- the scalloped edges are just too cute too! But if you want to go simple- stick to a solid colored, seamless sports bra-like top- like the one from Urban shown below. Simple enough, right?
I think the key here when pulling off a trend like this is just making sure that modesty is the best policy. As in- throw on a cardigan or blazer over your tiny top and leave your extra low-waisted shorts and skirts at home. Even layering one under sheer tops can be a great way to break into the trend.
