1. High waist bottoms
We understand if you feel a little uncomfortable showing off your glimpse of skin. Just because you are wearing a crop top, it doesn’t mean your belly button will be exposed. You can try matching a crop top with high-waist jeans or trousers and can eliminate any midriff show. You can also pair them with jeggings and add some cool sneakers or flats for a relaxed yet stylish outfit.
2. A line skirts and pencil skirts
If you love to be more girly, you can match your crop top with A-line skirt. Keep the colour palette of your outfit subdued if you’re wearing a circle skirt and crop top with high heels. Matching separates are as darling as can be, which makes the crop top much more ladylike. You can also style crop top that hits right at your true waist, paired with a body-con pencil skirt that hits just below your knees.

If you are little doubtful about your crop top layer it up! Layering will make you feel more put together and covered up.
