This trend doesn't work in the real world! Only a very tiny number of people can pull this type of look off without looking sloppy.

Oh, no this trend looks dreadfull poorly executed. it rarely looks good, I know people want this to look edgy but to me it looks rather unfinished.

I've always liked bare midriffs but this "trend" was already noticeable in last year's Spring collection and I didn't see it catch on in real life. I loved the way it was done at Helmut Lang, I'll definitely be getting those bra tops

i'm going to go with the flow here and echo that this should NOT be tried off the runway...
it rarely even looks good ON the runway...

please...just say NO!...

Oh God! This is giving me severe 90's flashbacks...I really hope it doesn't have a trickle down effect and result in the return of baby t's - there was a whole decade my long-torsoed self had to go without properly fitting t-shirts!

I'm sick and tired of seeing girls, small and large, walking around with their cropped tops and leggings (or in the best scenario, jeans).

The bare belly trend really shouldn't be continued, it looks silly. Show off your belly piercings at the beach, please!

I beg to differ. I think if done tastefully, bare midriffs can work very well off the runway. Personally my rule of thumb is that the belly-button mustn't be showing, so whatever skirt or high-waisted trousers are paired with the cropped top have to cover the belly button. I think this removes the tartiness and sloppiness and reduces the chance of having unsightly muffin top if the bottoms sit at the true waist.

I'll definitely be rocking this look this upcoming summer and have a couple of cropped tops from past season Dolce and Gabbana, and Sass and Bide that I'll be pairing with high waisted skirts, pants and some scalloped shorts I have, along with plain black flats or some muted tan loafer heels. Can't wait!
