The same trick goes for crop tops. I love my crop tops but always wear them with jeans. Even worn with tight skinny jeans, your legs are completely covered. That way, your midriff and legs don't have to be exposed at the same time. I don't know about you, but I like a bit of mystery. This pairing allows both minimal exposure and confidence.
On Monday I wore my favorite black fitted tee with palazzo/trouser pants and wedges (below).
I plan to wear this dress (below) on Friday. It was my mom's dress, and I tailored it to fit me. This robe is slouchy at the top and fitted at the bottom and the belt accentuates the waist without being too risque. The belt was also my mom's but I tailored it as well.
