Fall is upon us and we’re on the hunt for the most body flattering way to get warm! Turns out…crop tops and midi skirts is the hottest way to go about it. Don’t hide yourself under all those layers!
With the a figure hugging crop top, you have the possibility of keeping your arms nice and warm and showing off a little of your midriff at the same time. If you have a long neckline to show off, a high neck crop top would only accentuate it. Or if you feel like dressing up a long sleeve crop top with some necklace bibs or collar chokers, the high neck is definitely the way to go.
Kicking it off with Kim K, the lady who helped inspire this look, we have the simple long sleeve knit sweater crop top and midi skirt combo. Wearing the skirt high waisted allows for the skirt to elongate and accentuate your curves, making those who are short look taller, and those with a leaner figure more of a curvature outline. And even if the torso area is all covered up, it can be clearly seen that the long sleeve crop top is able to accentuate those curves also!
A little fearful of showing that midriff off in winter? Don’t shy away from your curves! The high waisted skirt adds the perfect parallel hemline to the crop top. You can go as high as you want, leaving half an inch to show some of that all naturale skin of yours, or go all the way and wear the skirt as low as your waistline. The complimenting hemlines go hand in hand. Instead of just wearing a regular knit sweater dress, you can change it up with a matching crop top and midi skirt set! This combo set is much more flattering to a figure and also keeps it a little more interesting.
Here you can see Vanessa Hudgens in a boxy crop top with a matching set high waisted midi skirt. Showing just a little skin keeps the look on the classier side.
The fun part is also mixing up the colors and materials! Miranda Kerr, my personal favorite Victoria’s Secret Angel, may be keeping it two tone and classy, but no less eye catching then anyone else! The patterned high waisted midi skirt keeps this simple color from going flat and boring.
Here we can see a side by side comparison of the crop top and midi skirt combo with a dress. Elle Fanning has a tank crop top on, showing lots of skin on the upper part of her body, and pairs it with a ruffled a-line high waisted midi skirt. This look allows for a little more appeal and color contrast because her natural skin is in between the ivory. A none-the-less classy look on both sides, but I have to admit, there’s certainly a bit more allure to the crop top and midi skirt set as opposed to the knee length dress.
