  • With a high waisted bottom: you can wear your crop top with some high waisted boyfriend jeans, cute shorts, or even a tea-length skirt. The high waist will cover the area you’re worried about, and still look quite fashionable.  
  • With a knotted blouse or a cute sweater: grab a baggy shirt or blouse with a contrasting color or pattern and place it on top of your crop top. Then, tie a knot on the front, making sure it covers the problematic area. You can also wear a sweater or denim jacket, and simply close it strategically on the areas you don’t want to show.
  • With a jumper: jumpers are back, and many of them can be successfully paired with a shirt underneath. Choose a denim jumper you like and wear a crop top underneath. It’s the perfect combination for the warm months.

Remember: wearing a crop top successfully requires confidence. Try these ideas and apply the one that makes you feel most comfortable with your body when you step outside.
