I do not recall when crop tops became such a huge success, but here we are, flaunting cropped up tops almost everywhere. Crop tops have become a major craze among girls and women around the world—and there is no reason why they should not be. However, like every other clothing, crop tops have certain rules (not rigid!) which you should consider.
Crop tops may be the easiest choice, but they may not be the easiest to style. There are a handful of things you must keep in mind before you decide to purchase one. In this article, I will try helping you out with what you should consider. So, without further ado, here are 5 things to keep a note of before you dress up in a crop top.
Tone Down A Little Bit
The whole purpose of a crop top is to make your midriff area look amazing. But, how much can a piece of clothing do when your body is not in shape. I am not asking you to lose all the fat you have and become sickly thin. What I want you to do is tone down your waist area if you want to accentuate the beauty which crop tops are.
Work on the fat around the midriff and tone it down.
Those Which Hold Shape
It does not matter what body type you have, but improperly sized crop tops just kill the look. Any crop top which has a light or sloppy fabric does not sit well on the body, and hence, it is recommended that you pick up those crop tops which are made out of slightly heavy fabric so that they stay on your body and accentuate the upper half the way it should be.
In case you are one of those who walk with slouched shoulders or slightly bent posture, then you need to start working on your posture and gait immediately. Crop tops are there to make your upper half of the body look good, and they cannot do it unless you have your body posture and gait worked on.
Stand up straight and walk without slouching. I used to slouch while walking, and it did not go well with crop tops. Hence, it is highly advised that to ensure that your crop top does the job it has been manufactured for you should maintain a good posture.
Know the Various Types
There is no single type of crop top—if you did not know that. In fact, there are varied kinds of crop tops which meet the needs of different body types. However, much of the decision is yours.
There are crop tops which shorter than ordinary tops and do not reveal much skin. Then, we have those which rise up and show navel. Many of them tend to show a modest strip under the bra line.
There are options available which may expose a lot of skin in the cleavage, arm and navel area. It is up to you whether you are comfortable wearing them, but trust me, they are sexiest piece of clothing to wear.
Do Not Feel Nervous
Crop tops are amazing, I admit that, but many might feel uncomfortable wearing them. They tend to expose skin, sometimes much more than people can handle. While it is the short-sightedness of people that they judge people on the basis of what they wear, you should not feel embarrassed about what you are wearing.
If you are new to crop tops, it is always better to start with the basic ones. Wear those which do not reveal much skin and adjust yourself to the change. Once you have amassed enough confidence, go for the ones which are more cropped up.
Always remember that people will talk because this is what they do. You should feel content with what you wear, and if you feel that your crop top is the best, then wear it like it should. Wear it confidently and show the world how you can pull off one of the sexiest pieces of clothing there ever was and you will gain a sense of achievement like no other!
Crop top is also known as cropped top, belly shirt, half shirt, midriff shirt, midriff top, tummy top, short shirt, and cutoff shirt.
