I love Me Top-Wet Seal

Here at SC we love how fashion just keeps repeating itself. Currently one of the hot spring trends is the crop top. Yes, you heard right. The crop top was a popular trend int he 80' and 90's. The good thing about the return of this trend is that the it's a little more modern and it comes in plus sizes.

I know a lot of plus size women feel like some of the trends are not made for them and the cropped top is one of them. Here at SC we believe plus size girls can wear the same trends as straight sizes, you just have to find the right cut for your body type. To show you that plus sizes girls can wear a cropped top we created three outfits to show you that it can be done in a way that makes you feel comfortable and proud of your curves.

Crop Top- Alloy

If you prefer to not show your belly and refuse to wear a tank under the top, then take a cue from my big sister in blogging The Curvy Fashionista and wear a crop top over a dress. I told you curvy girls can rock this look too. Marie looks great!

Below are our tips for pulling off the cropped top look if you're plus:
Find the right length- cropped tops are all about the mid section so it's important that you find the right length that works for you and that you're comfortable with. If you are one of those curvy or plus size women with flat abs like plus model Fluvia Lacerda then try a cropped top that hits just below your belly button. Not the kind of curvy girl that wants to show off your belly then choose a cropped top that grazes the top of your jeans or skirt.
 How to wear it- One of the most flattering ways to wear a crop top is to pair it with a high waisted skirt or high waisted jeans. To take the comfort level up a notch, wear a tank top under it. This way as you move around and lift and stretch you don't have to worry about exposing your mid section.
When to wear it- Choose your crop top outfit for fun events like a music festival, at the beach, or for a night out with the girls. Do Not Wear To Work. I repeat, Do Not Wear To Work!

Will you be trying this trend?

LOLz at the warning and plea for workplace attire propriety.

Someone might pop up at the office belly out in a crop top and pinstripe suit wondering why they got the stink-eye at the board meeting : )

I love that crop tops are back in style. I think they look too cute with a high waist mini skirt and a contrasting tank or bodysuit underneath.

I'm working on some cropped tees for my new collection and they are FIRE :)

I'm obsessed with slouchy crop tops! They are kind of perfect and they are perfect for hiding the belly.

Target has really good ones right now:)
