CROP tops are not exclusively reserved for thin frames.
If you’re not sure whether to wear one because of your belly, a plus-size fashionista has shared the best ways to easily get started.
“So you want to start wearing crop tops but you’re not sure about your arms or belly, so keep watching,” Mikkaela said in a TikTok video.
If you’re unsure about your arms, she suggested choosing a shirt with a bit of length on the sleeves.
She also advised wearing an oversized blazer over your outfit to feel more comfortable.
“It covers your arms, your sides, it doesn’t show your back. So it’s still in the comfort zone,” she said.
“If you choose to wear an oversized blazer, make sure your crop top is slightly fitted for a balanced look.
“And if you’re comfortable, wear something that’s a little cleavage, shows a little cleavage but not too much – balancing out your look and it’s not too much fabric.”
Mikkaela also said that if you want something a little more casual, you can opt for a long sleeve button up top over your crop top.
Then she moved on to stockings.
“Anything with a high waist will be your friend if you want to wear crop tops when you’re unsure about your belly,” she said.
“Like these shorts I’m wearing, its waist is high enough to cover most of my belly, and I can adjust how much of my belly I want to show by adjusting my crop top.
“You have to make sure you create a balance, so it’s a fitted crop top, I opted for a little baggy shorts that were more structured like this.”
For jeans, Mikkaela advises opting for loose high-waisted mom jeans.
She also cited a flowy, mid-length midi skirt as a good option.
