Top: ATL Manila / Skirt: April 2nd / Heels: Zara / Clutch: SM Accessories / Earrings: The Jewelry Shop
Cropped tops are the perfect complementary pieces to show off a toned physique. The thing is, I don't have a toned torso and it would take 10,000 years for me to even develop one panel of toned abs (don't even ask me why!). But even the lack of a toned torso cannot prevent me from indulging myself in trying out restrictive pieces of clothing. My tip for working around those menacing love handles while donning a cropped top? Wear high waist bottoms - they're a godsend to (slightly) strategically cover those unwanted bulges. As seen in this ensemble, I paired a tailored cropped top from ATL Manila with a tribal-print high waist skirt. There's still a blob of jelly tummy peeking somewhere in this look, but at least 3/4 of the flesh monstrosity is concealed. Hahaha!
