Crop It Real Good

If there is one trend that can put the fear into even the most experienced style maven it's the crop top. Its downfall lays in that it leaves little - or rather, nothing - to the imagination. But, the midriff featured heavily on the catwalk this season, from Jonathan Saunders’ shrunken shirts to Dolce & Gabbana's broderie anglaise cut-off camis, and with temperatures heating up it's been hitting the streets too.

Are you scared yet? Well, don’t be. There’s a chic solution to this sticky style situation and that is to mix mini with maxi. Team your cropped tee with high waisted trousers to keep belly baring to a sophisticated minimum, and add a statement necklace to draw attention to the neck rather than the erogenous zone. Pair with gauzy brogues and an animal skin clutch to polish your look.
