Cropped tops ain’t new. Ladies sported them in the ’70s and ’80s and now it’s coming back.

Since the warmer months are here, it’s just perfect to show a little more skin! 😀 Time to get more serious with those cardio and ab workouts, ladies! Hehe! 😀

I got this plain cropped tee from H&M in my recent trip to Tokyo. It has uneven cut (front is a bit shorter). But not too short though as I’m not that ready to show my tummy just yet. I need to get it toned first. LOL! What made me fall in love with this tee is its color. I love blush. It’s such a romantic color. 😀

So how can you look fab when sporting cropped tops? You can pair it with bandage skirts, high-waisted pants or shorts. Wearing high-waisted bottoms is the trick to avoid bulging tummies. 😀

And since I’m just wearing a plain tee and a black trousers, I wore some accessories so as not to look too boring. The leather bracelet and necklace are my fab finds from H&M too, which I shared in this post.

To add a bit of color, I used my ever-reliable scarf as a belt. 😀
