Summer vacations maybe over for most of us, but this does not mean that summer is over too. That’s why, this week we will talk about a trend that we saw on catwalks our the world. We talk about short tops of course. Do you remember the cute, short tops we used to wear when we were kids and left our bellies uncovered? These tops are in fashion this year and if they are combined the right way they can make you look so feminine, that you cannot even imagine.
For those of you who prefer a more casual look (I am one of you), choose ethereal tops, that are not tight, mostly t-shirts that you will wear with high waisted mini skirts, which will make you look like a Lolita, or even with high waisted shorts. Do not forget your hippie chic, maxi skirts. Blake Lively- Serena from Gossip Girl- is a fan of that look. The key feature of this look is high waisted clothes, either skirts or pants, that make this trend look really chic and beautiful and not cheap or even worse… 90s! Use either flip flops to finish your look- you will still be able to wear them for a long time- or espadrilles that will remind you of your childhood or even biker boots, that most of you have since winter time. If you wear the latter with shorts and a short top you will achieve a very sexy look. Have a look at Jamie’s Chung photo and you will understand what I mean.
For those of you who feel like you lose your femininity when dressed in a casual way (which I personally think is not right and I urge you to try it out!) the best way to wear short tops is with a high waisted, androgynous style pants or even high waisted, wide legged pair of jeans. It is very feminine, always chic because it does not leave your belly uncovered and also makes you look much taller! For a night out choose a hippie chic look, combining tight short tops with high waisted, wide or tight, maxi skirts. One look at the following photos from Salvatore Ferragamo collection will leave you speechless!
The secret in this particular look is to leave all hesitations- about looking “cheap”- aside. This will never happen if you wear your short tops with high waisted skirts or pants, no matter how long they are. Try it out and you will feel very excited!
This days we try to save as much money as we can. That is why we suggest that you take your old t-shirts and tear them with scissors. Even better, steal some from your boyfriend, brother or best friend.
At this point I will be very strict with you: Like it or not, short tops are only for women with flat belly that people like to see!
