Cropped Stripes

how to style a cropped top
 Cropped tops are taking Spring by storm, which means we're going to be seeing (hopefully only) a little more skin throughout the season. While I think cropped tops can work on just about everyone, I believe that one rule should be stuck to when styling these tiny tees, and that is, no belly button. Sure it's cute on teenagers to some extent and I was in fact guilty of belly button grazing tees with cuts off, but as I've gotten older i've seen the error of my ways. And during this occurrence I've found that the only classy way to style the cropped variety is with a high waisted separate, showing only a sliver of skin. Playful, and not over the top.
