Crop top, it’s a pretty self-explanatory named article of clothing. It’s a top that is cropped, or shorter than most other tops. Some graze your navel while others put your belly button on full display.

Although they were EVERYWHERE this summer, my guess is that they were not in EVERYONE’S closet. And that was probably the case because, let’s be honest, it takes a self-assured person to bare his or her midriff in public. If you are modest about exposing that part of your body, there are a few different ways to wear cropped tops without having to show all of that skin.

Depending on your geographic location, showing skin in the winter is not even an option. It usually tends to be the season for more layers, not less material.

Let’s start with this cropped sweater from H&M, for example. 
You can stay cozy and warm by pairing it with high-waisted trousers or jeans and then adding accessories that best reflect your personality.

If high-waisted pants are not your cup of tea, there is always the option to layer a cropped sweater over a shirt, tank or tee. I tend to opt for collared shirts or blouses because I like the extra pop of color or print around the neck. Mixing prints is an effortless way to look cool, so feel free to experiment with different combinations!

And lastly, you can wear that belly top or cropped sweater with a skirt that sits a little higher on your waist. Pencil skirts and maxi skirts are both great options, but I chose this high-waisted flared skirt with black tights.
