While there are obviously people who whole heartedly support the right to "express yourself" and "the freedom to wear what you want," there are also people supporting these horrendous Prada sandals that made their way onto the runway earlier this year...so that settles that.
Speaking as a strong advocate for ill-fitted cropped tops against humanity, I don't think society deserves to see my untoned abs, and quite frankly I have too much self respect and not enough appetite for attention. Which finally brings us to the reinvention of the kimono.
While cropped tops worn conventionally are not for all body types, this isn't to say that they cannot be worn by all. A contradiction you say? It's simple, if you can make it work, go for it. Wear a cropped top with a skirt without the unnecessary exposure and you've just put together a modest little number. I on the other hand, draped a kimono around my waist for the perfect summer look.
