Crop Top for Spring Summer 2012

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /usr/home/fashionallure/domains/fashionallure.com/public_html/wp-content/plugins/related-posts-by-zemanta/init.php on line 340

Embrace the Spring 2012 crop top trend that gives casual cool a whole new meaning. This trendy piece is a result of a wardrobe basic revision – let me rephrase it to make it clear, a simple top gets updated with a cropped hem. Perfect for a trendy stand-alone style a crop top proves that basics don’t have to be boring.

Some say it’s a throwback to the styles of a decade ago but let me give them a piece of advice. It’s no longer a tacky, 90’s-inspired style, screaming for some attention. This time crop top gets fashioned in a way that makes it look both elegant and classy.

Fashion shows were dominated with the sleeveless cut midriff tops that feel luxurious worn alone. In most cases, the crop tops were plain with the only accent of a colour. Preen, Altuzarra, and Phillip Lim went for pastels, Nanette Lepore showed her passion for bold lime, while Antonio Berardi opted for coloured metallics that should remind us of 1950s’ cars.

In all cases, crop tops played the first fiddle whereas the background was rather restrained. Phillip Lim and Antonio Berardi were a bit less enthusiastic about showing a fair amount of skin. The ensembles they showcased weren’t actually midriff-baring but it doesn’t mean they’re good for the happy paunch owners. Why? The cropped styling would make a fuller belly look like in the size of Texas. This may be politically incorrect, but this is not fashion for fat people.
