Getting bored of dresses? Well, you aren’t alone! Everyone from Lupita Nyong’o to Selena Gomez and Khloe Kardashian are rocking crop tops and matching skirts instead of just throwing on a frock. The result? The silhouette allows them to show some skin in a sexy, chic way that’s totally tasteful, appropriate, and trendy — and we can’t get enough of the look. Sure, we’re crazy for crop tops, but we love the sophisticated way the silhouette looks when paired with a matching, high-waisted skirt — so that’s why we rounded up a slew of options in every price range, just for you.
Crop Tops & Matching Skirts:
We saw so many trends on the runways for Spring 2014. From flirty florals to high-waisted skirts, longer hemlines, and crop tops, we can’t wait to start rocking these refreshing looks right now — but there’s one that we really can’t seem to get enough of, and neither can our favorite stylish stars on the red carpet!
Crop tops were a big trend last spring and they are back in a big way for 2014 — and you should embrace the trend! The easiest, most flattering way to rock it is with a high-waisted skirt, just like all our favorite stars. Skirts with matching crop tops have taken over the red carpet and are such a refreshing change, especially in a sea of standard cocktail dresses. While this is a great look for a fun night out with your friends or even for a date night, with the right ensemble you can even pull it off for a formal party or a wedding!
How YOU Can Rock The Crop Top & Matching Skirt Trend:
If you are trying the look for a more formal occasion, I would gravitate towards a set that features a skirt with a longer hemline. Not only is it just as stylish and chic as a dress any day, but it’s still appropriate and chic for a formal affair — and the hint of skin at your midriff will set your look apart in such a sexy way.
If your style is more feminine or if you are trying to conceal your hips or bottom, opt for an a-line, full skirt. Longer, tea length skirts are so on trend and they balance out the sexy top — rocking a crop top skirt combo is all about balance! For example, if you’re going to wear a mini skirt, cover up more on top and select a look that features sleeves.
If you want to give the illusion of fuller hips, selected a snug skirt in a bold print or stripes with a matching top. If you have a larger chest, be conscious of the top you select — you don’t want to look like you are stuffed in your shirt.
Regardless of your shape or budget, we definitely have some great options. Start shopping if you want to own this hot red carpet trend.
