We saw lots of new shapes on the runway for the Spring, and Debbie is here to help you figure out how to wear these new shapes.
1. The Crop Top
This piece is back from the 80s, but definitely more refined and updated. The crop top isn’t for everyone, but if you dare to bare a little skin, try a crop with a long skirt. Just make sure it looks flattering on your figure.
The other option with the crop top is to layer it, with a blouse underneath since the crop is very boxy, so that’s a way to wear this style without showing too much skin.
2. Long Skirt
It’s all about the long skirt, even for petite ladies– just be sure to pair it with a heel and a cropped jacket. This look is all about the proportions and the waist line, so it can fit any body shape or size, even petites.
If you’ve been wearing Oxford blouses, tucked into pencil skirts and want to make the switch to a long skirt, don’t be afraid to keep that top un-tucked. This new look has some structure all on its own, so don’t worry about tucking in all the time.
3. The Cropped Pant
Everything is getting cropped! Cropped pants are coming in a little wider and dressier. The cuff of the leg rests at the ankle, and the new style are less tapered, so you want to be sure to pair them with something more fitted on top for balance, or something loose and drapey to accentuate the boxiness of the new, wider pant. Pair them with a little heel, because a flat shoe with crops will tend to make you look shorter and wider.
2014 is all about cropped, but you need to know how to pull it off and proportion your outfits.
