Hello City Luxers,

Like it or not, crop tops are still on trend and they don't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon (sigh). So for all of my followers who like this look but don't want to expose that much skin,  today I am going to show you how to rock a crop top without showing any midriff.  Step one is to find a fitted high-waisted pencil skirt that hits you either at the knee or slightly below.  This will elongate your leg and also cinch your waist at the tiniest point.  Step two is to purchase a looser fitting crop top like the one from Club Monaco above.  The silky loose fit of this top allows it to flow over the top of my pencil skirt and because it is high-waisted, my skin is not exposed at all.  The result is a dressier, more sophisticated way to wear the trend.  Finish off the look with a pair of pumps and a dressier handbag and you are good to go!  To shop this look, click the links above or the images below.
