Crop Tops

The nostalgic crop top (especially for those born '75-'85) is on the forefront of my mind lately, in combination w/ visible sports bras. Never thought that latter one would seem stylish but the day has come. I prefer the concept of showing your upper stomach/rib cage above a high-waisted skirt (as shown above) rather than bringing back the naval midriff area which is more reminiscent of 'Hit me Baby One More Time,' something none of us need to be reminded of just yet.
