Here’s a fresh take on flesh-baring styles for warm weather: bare midriffs. What makes the look different is that it involves wearing a cropped top and high-waisted skirt. That means that the slice of tummy that’s exposed is above the navel, which is good news for those of us who pack a bit extra below the navel.
This look has been photographed on Alexa Chung, Jessica Szohr, and Leona Lewis, and it’s a great way to show off what is often an underappreciated part of the figure. And the clothes are cut in rather demure, ladylike ways.
Chung’s outfit is an attention-grabbing blue print, while Szohr chooses sand-colored linen. Lewis goes for tropical brights in a look that would be perfect at a summer party. Is this a look you would be willing to try?
