The easiest and most flattering way to wear the style has to be paired with a full, high-waisted skirt, baring just a flirty flash of skin on the upper midriff. Arguably the most forgiving area of midriff to display for most of us mere mortals.
Keep the look simple and understated in a monochrome palette as seen at Donna Karan Collection. The tribal print and accessories ensure that the retro inspired silhouette stays fresh and interesting.
For those who feel more bold (or more toned) this evening, bandeau style in complementary cherry red and burgundy from Prada, may be for you. The subtle ruching lends a grown up edge to the youthful cut.
Alternatively, pair with trousers and wear under sheer summer layers and soft tailoring for demure chic a la Helmut Lang, seen below.
The asymmetrical cut and sports luxe twist make this an ideal understated undergarment for bold, sheer styles. And if, like me, you are starting to plan your crop-top-ready sit up regime, at least you need look no further for on trend workout wear!
