Crops or shorts ?
This Spring Summer we will definitely show some skin. Between the crop tops and the shorts fashion brings the sexy back! Even if I like the idea of wearing a crop top to show off beautiful abs, and the retro vibe of some of the looks seen on the runway (think Prada, Nina Ricci), I still have some reservations about adopting this trend in the everyday life… I personally opt for the shorts, first because I’m far from rocking the six packs and second wearing shorts allows you to make endless combinations and, with the right style and accessories, look chic and put together at work or for a trendy cocktail party. If you want to dig in more on the subject I recommend reading this smart and funny article written by Amanda FitzSimons on the crop tops trend in ELLE April Issue… Whatever team you choose see some examples below hope they will inspire you!
