Crop tops have emerged as one of the hottest trend of the season. It has received love of almost every fashion lover, irrespective of their age or requirements. Being a top it is considered to be a western wear which can be teamed with various western outfits like skirts, plazzos, denims etc. But our designers surely know how to turn such a fashionable trend into an Indian Wear. Therefore of late we can see most of our designers using crop tops in various avatars on the Indian ramp. The recently concluded Lakme fashion week is the greatest example where designers like Manish Malhotra, Ridhi Mehra, Sabhyasachi and many more used this silhouette as a part of the bridal collection as a Crop Top and Lehnga Skirt style.
Well, this style almost goes with every body type but you can go extremely wrong with it too if you don’t choose the design wisely according to your body type.
If you are slim and have flat tummy, You can definitely keep a good space between your top and the bottom. But if you are fat or else have fat on your belly area then avoid having too much space between the length of your top and the bottom. Add up flare at the bottom to add a proportion and balance to the look, as a straight skirt will make you look more thinner and fatter in the latter case. Choose your bottom Ghera wisely. Also heavy embroidery on chest are fine for those who are slim or have small chest size, as they will add a little volume to the upper chest. Do not use heavy embroideries on thick fabrics if your bust size is heavy. If your arms are heavy then avoid sleeveless and short sleeves, in this case go for full sleeves or above elbow length.
Brides to be can definitely try this silhouette for their functions as trying something new is always fashionable and that too when it’s the hottest trend, isn’t it….
