I've never been to big of a fan of cropped things, but honestly I'm starting to like them. I just saw this post from Lauren Conrad about tackling the fear of crop tops. I totally agree with her because I was definitely afraid of this trend for a super long time. I've now come to my senses and realized that crop tops aren't so long as you wear them the right way! I love the tips that Lauren gives on her blog, but here are my top 5 tips to wearing crop tops (you may be surprised with how many ways you can wear them!).

1. Layered
I never really thought about this idea for a long time, but it always confused me why people bought cropped sweaters. I realized though that they look fabulous layered over longer tops. I think sheer ones especially. It's a great way to add some fun to a simple outfit.

2. High Waisted
I think crop tops look best worn with something high waisted so there's not too much skin being shown. High waisted shorts in the summer are a great way to pair crop tops! It looks super trendy and is a totally wearable outfit for the summer

3. Skirts
Skirts look amazing with crop tops because usually they are a bit high waisted. I think it shows off a little skin (in the summer especially), but nothing to risky. 

4. Sweater Over
I think it may be the awkward back that shows when people wear crop tops. The stomach part is usually covered up because people almost always wear crop tops withs something high waisted. I think that a loose sweater or cardigan layered over a crop top covers up that back and it looks like a more pulled together. 

5. Beach
Crop tops are perfect for beachwear because they are totally acceptable at the beach. Some people may be a bit skeptical of someone wearing a crop top anywhere, but the beach is an exception. Crop tops (knit ones especially) make super cute coverups!
