Cropped WHO WHAT WHERE?!?!?

Option Two:  High Waisted Bottoms.

I kid you not, they are most definitely making a come back.  Released with crop tops, it’s almost like the designers feel our fear.  Click here to peruse 6 pages of high waisted pieces on net-a-porter.  Some of my favorites are Jonathan Simkhai, Alexander Wang and Jason Wu.

High Waisted Bottoms also hide a multitude of sins because of where the lines cut.  Seriously.

Sarah Jessica Parker herself said in 2003 that moms don’t need to wear low rise jeans (click here for that Vogue piece).  Same exact premise to be found here.  No need to fully expose the Shar Pei tummy region.

cropd It should not be a whole lotta skin that is showing.  Buy up in the size of the top, gain a little extra length.  Just be sure of one thing – feel comfortable in it.  If not, there is always Option #1 – click here to revisit!

Cropped WHAT?!?

Memo to designers – Not all women’s stomachs are created equal.

Some are in their early twenties and have washboard six packs. Others are a teeny bit older and have had some babies, and are now the proud owners of tummy-Shar-Peis.

Hence the Spring fashion conundrum concerning crop tops & the need for Fashion Translation!

There are some wondrous collections out this spring, most of which are offering crop tops. What’s the owner of a muffin top to do?

crop10

Option One – the layered look.  This is a great option for Spring (and almost Spring), as layering is key to survival when it is freezing in the morning then scorching in the afternoon.

crop7

Wear a longer tee short or blouse underneath the crop. But don’t tuck!

Option Two –  Tune in tomorrow……  🙂
