The Lust List: Cropped & Matched

The spring runways experienced a blast from the past with the preponderance of crop tops on display from a slew of designers including Narciso Rodriguez, Thakoon, Rebecca Taylor, Rachel Zoe, Fendi, Jil Sander, and even preppy brands like Lacoste and the classic DKNY.

However, the models sashaying down the runway with bare midriffs brought a chic, streamlined, and sophisticated vibe that was far from 80s prom or 90s middle school dance.

Why? Nearly every designer created matching looks, pulling together skirt and crop top ensembles that were sexy-yet-refined.

Fashion bloggers took noteā€”it seems everyone is doing this cropped and matched skirt-and-top trend. (Including me!)

With Love from Kat

Regardless of your body type, ladies can rock a bare midriff with a bit of caution and a lot of style. Pair your crop top with a high-waist pencil skirt in the same shade or print, and throw on a blazer or short motorcycle jacket for added style and coverage. An extra sit up or two can’t hurt, and will help work off the weekend’s mimosas.
