The styles on the spring 2011 runways were many and various; from teeny, tiny tops to the smallest hints of skin. To break it down, here are some of the different ways we've seen cropped tops on the runway:
- With elegance - the tiniest slit along the waistline of a dress, turning it into a two-piece ensemble broken up only by a shallow hint of skin.
- Fighting fit with stomach fully bared - try Sporty examples that are perfectly sexy for those with the confidence to pull them off. These type of cropped tops end just below the bust, and were paired with hipster pants for a revealing end result. You could just as easily substitute the hip-huggers for a high waisted bottom half, if you wanted to add some modesty.
- Beneath a sheer layer - adding a layer of transparent fabric is the perfect way to combine the ongoing popularity of the sheer trend with the newness of the exposed midriff.
- With cutaway detailing - expect many dresses to hit the shelves with cutaway details that expose parts of the stomach or midriff.
