Ab Fab – will you be indulging in this seasons hottest trend?

I hope you’ve used that new year gym membership wisely, as you’ll need a nicely toned tum for Spring’s hottest trend – the crop top.

A favourite on the catwalk for the Spring / Summer 2012 collections, it has been decided – crop tops are officially back! I am looking at the positive side of this, which is: I have to get in shape to pull this trend off. The last time I wore a crop top was during the Spice Girls era and as you have probably gathered this was a long time ago.

Fashions come back around as they say ‘ Fashion has two legs which keep on walking,’  now usually these trends get better and in this case more sophistiated (heres hoping) with time. What I like about the trend this season, is that most of the tops are teamed with high waisted skirts creating a more girly, pretty feel, as seen in the above image on the Versace and D&G models.

Acne showed a very wearable and more casual take on the trend as shown below:

Topshop Unique went for a more bold and hippy-esque take on the trend which I quite like:

Here is some street style for your own crop top fashion inspiration:

   

   

  

   

I am definitely a fan of the more subtle crop showing just a glimpse of tum, I feel this look is more attractive and less in your face.
