    This look can actually work for several different body types, believe it or not. Whether you’re curvy or slim, the best way to rock a crop might be with a high waisted skirt or pair of pants, drawing attention to your smallest part. But, if you have the body to pull off low slung trousers, by all means, go for it!

    This trend is really open to interpretation! Slip on an all white suit, or go with the popular crop top and pencil skirt combo, spied on legions of starlets. Your whites should be bright and crisp, so consider buying them brand new–but don’t spend too much! With one false move, the look can be ruined.
