A hint of skin under crop tops and shorts was all the rage at this year’s Oscars.

Zendaya showed off her belly in a men’s silk cropped shirt and silver sequin maxi skirt by Valentino; Kristen Stewart opted for a cropped tuxedo with tiny Chanel shorts; and West Side Story Star and Best Supporting Actress winner Ariana De Bose wowed in a cropped Valentino corset with matching pants.

If you’re looking for a matching set, we love this Alexandra Two-Piece Pant Set, $109.95, also from Showpo. It features a v-neck crop top that’s fully lined and has a scoop neckline at the back to show off a little extra skin in a subtle way. The pants are high waisted, wide and also fully lined. Because there are no pockets, you get a straight leg look. The set comes in a satin finish worthy of a red carpet.
