Crop tops are no longer a ‘90s fashion faux pas; they’re simple and cozy pieces that show a little skin in all the right ways. Don’t go for one that’s too short, though, because you don’t want your top to be confused with a bra. Instead, choose a crop top that hits right below the belly button, at the very highest, so that you’re showing off glimpses of your toned tummy without giving too much away.

Bold is Beautiful
There’s no hiding in this trend! Be brave this coming year and own a bold-patterned staple. Stylist Betsie Kamm agrees: “prints look so amazing on everyone whether it be on a top, a great look for layering, or a vintage floral dress.” Not sure which print is right for you? Just have fun! Choose a pattern that fits your personality; from large polka dots to bright zig-zags, there’s a bold print for everyone.
