For those fashionistas who thought they could just sit back, relax and eat cake until spring arrived and the weather was good enough to bring out the summer wardrobe, think again: Bare midriffs are a huge trend this spring, so you better think twice before eating that second slice of sticky caramel- banana cake!
Not only designers like Marc Jacobs used glimpses of midriff in their spring collections, shops like River Island, Forever 21 and Topshop are selling crop tops as well. And let’s not forget all those stylish celebrities who are already incorporating bare midriffs in their day-to-day fashion.
This is my favourite crop top from Topshop:
Pair your crop top/blouse/jumper with a high-waisted skirt or trousers for a sophisticated look and NEVER opt for a bare bellybutton outfit! Unless you want to look like Britney Spears in her “Hit me baby one more time” period. (Which you don’t.)
I have to admit that, although I totally love this look, I haven’t yet figured out how I am actually going to wear this on a day-to-day basis. Unfortunately, God hasn’t blessed me with a sun-kissed skin like Naya Rivera, and I definitely don’t have Rihanna’s tremendous confidence. Not to mention that this look isn’t really suitable for attending classes at University. Or for a day at the office…

And Rihanna in a very cool combo of orange and purple.
On the other hand, I would really really really like to wear it! 😉
What do you think about this look, fellow fashionistas? Do you dare to bare?
