My love affair with crop tops began back in the ’90s, when crop tops were all the rage. My seven-year-old self believed them to be the height of sophistication, despite my knowing only one adjective to describe them (zigazig-ah). Naturally my mother told me that belly buttons on show were not a very classy look for children, so after much protestation I capitulated.
Now a full-fledged adult, I am seizing my zigazig-ahness and channelling Carrie Bradshaw in my 21st-century crop top obsession. I like to team my crop tops up with a circle skirt, worn on the waist. Perfect for hot summers days, and great for dancing!
