Crop tops are a huge fashion trend this Spring - I mean huge! These cropped babes were all over the runway during fashion week and now, they're in all of your favorite stores.

I personally love this trend because they're multifaceted and super easy to style. From ultra girly, to urban or punk rock - a crop top is definitely a versatile piece that every girl should own.
A Crop Top For Everybody Type:
Small Chest: If you have a smaller bust, go for crop tops with a print or pattern. This will give the illusion of a fuller bust.
Large Chest: Avoid crop tops with a deep neckline or plunge as this will only highlight your bust. Crop tops made of stretchy material are a good pick because they'll stretch to cover your bust comfortably.
Curvy: Many curvy girls shy away from crop tops because they think you cannot wear these tops unless you're thin. This is simply untrue. If you have a little more 'junk in your trunk' pair a crop top with a high-waisted skirt or pants. This will draw attention to the smallest part of your midsection and show off your curves flawlessly.
Long & Lean: A crop top that falls at your natural waist paired with bottoms that hit a few inches below lengthen your waist and accentuate your thin frame.
For Your Body: Regardless of your body type, here's a mini workout you can do at home to tone your midsection, strengthen your abs and keep those love handles at bay.
