|Black crop, skirt and backpack all from TOPSHOP|
The bare midriff trend is usually one I admire from afar. I made an exception however when I found this black crop top while shopping in Malaysia last month. Teamed with a high waisted skirt and an everyday backpack, I think I've found my signature look for spring 2014.
Tips for working the trend
- An easy way to master the bare midriff trend is to find bottoms that you're comfortable wearing. It might be your favourite high waisted jeans, or that gypsy skirt that has been sitting in your wardrobe for a few seasons.
- This trend can also teeter on the edge of tacky, so it's important that you get the exposed amount right. The key is to flash just a little bit of flesh across the ribcage. More importantly, keep your belly button covered!
