As much as I love to wear cropped tops, I don't fancy showing too much midriff. My limit is an inch. Thus, majority of the time, I would wear cropped tops with high-waisted bottoms be it mini skirts, shorts, skorts, pants, midi skirts and tulle skirts.
In some cases, because my torso is so short, my midriff is not exposed at all (like in this outfit). Wearing cropped tops isn't all about revealing one's midriff. It is also about "altering" one's body proportion. When you wear a cropped top with a high-waisted bottom, it immediately makes your legs appear a lot longer than they actually are. And as a result, it makes you appear taller too especially in photos, till you stand next to someone tall. LOL.
