As with most trends, it took me awhile to jump on the cropped top/sweater bandwagon.
I tend to favor sweaters of the long and chunky variety that help hide my belly – not put it on display.
So I found cropped tops to be intimidating, as silly as it may be to be intimidated by a piece of clothing – even if that piece of clothing is designed to show your tummy.
I only decided to take the plunge at a time when I was fairly confident in my body (pre-baby, naturally) and felt empowered from the likes of Mindy Kaling rocking crop tops in her own sassy and stylish way.
Surprisingly enough I found they weren’t as difficult to wear as I anticipated, even with a belly.
But before you start rolling your eyes at me, like yeah yeah we know – you’re going to say crop tops are actually really flattering and anyone can pull them off…
Actually no, I’ll be the first to tell you – not everyone can pull them off.
But it’s not for the reason you may think.
