If there is one trend that can put the fear into even the most experienced style maven it's the crop top. Its downfall lays in that it leaves little - or rather, nothing - to the imagination. But, the midriff featured heavily on the catwalk this season, from Jonathan Saunders shrunken shirts to Dolce & Gabbana's broderie anglaise cut-off camis, and with temperatures heating up it's been hitting the streets too.
Are you scared yet? Well, dont be. Theres a chic solution to this sticky style situation and that is to mix mini with maxi. Team your cropped tee with high waisted trousers to keep belly baring to a sophisticated minimum, and add a statement necklace to draw attention to the neck rather than the erogenous zone. Pair with gauzy brogues and an animal skin clutch to polish your look.
