the back bow

While an outfit may look simple from a frontal view, it can also look sweet and sexy from the back. It’s not necessary to show off your belly button with a cropped top. In fact, I like to combine it with a super high waisted pencil skirt to hide my belly button and define my back curves instead. In this way, you will be able to elongate your lower half body along with strapy ankle heels. Try to pick a cropped top that either has a unique pattern or interesting detailing at back.

Styling Tips: I would suggest wearing dark colors in your lower half to a slimmer figure. You want trousers or skirts to be well fitted from waist to thigh area. I personally love loose cropped tops with slim pencil skirts styled with a pair of statement heels.
