My favorite piece for this summer is definitely the cropped sweater. Now you might think that all you need to do is dig out that little short top you still have from the ‘90s … but no, the new short tops are contemporary and classy. They work especially well when combined them with a high-waisted skirt or pants, since let’s be honest, displaying your belly button is something we should leave to teenagers.
Showing your upper waist, on the other hand, can be sexy and stylish. Feeling good about revealing your stomach can be a good motivation for getting in shape as the warmer months approach. Try an ensemble made out of a non-sporty material like knitted rayon. The new Calvin Klein Resort spring/summer collection displays a spate of cropped sweatshirts, and I am sure the more affordable brands will have them in store just in time. Another spring is ahead of us!
