Crop Tops + Other Trends That Aren’t for Me

I have a confession:  I have been feeling mighty discouraged lately while shopping.  I’m hoping a few of you are with me on this one, hence why I’m sharing.

While I love the crop top trend, it is simply not for me.  My mid section is not something I’m going to be baring, although I wish I could.  Additionally, the trends for this Spring are very body-concious, with lots of skin showing.  Crop tops, maxis with cut-outs and oblique-baring muscle tees.  It’s frustrating when you want to be on trend and participate in the trends and your body doesn’t quite match up.  However, I’m a firm believer in dressing to flatter your body type and these aren’t my most flattering items.

The crop top I’m wearing above is something I really do love, and paired with a high-waist skirt, you’re still getting the full effect of the trend.  That said, the skirt is body-concious so definitely not the most comfortable (ie. suck it in!).

Are there any trends you’re wishing would work on you but just don’t?  Sound off in the comments below, I’d love to hear!
