For the love of the crop (top)

It took me a little while to fall in love with the crop. It crept up on me slowly, starting with a few cutouts on the side at the waist, slowly transitioning into all-over cutouts, until all of a sudden outfits were ripped in half into two completely separate pieces. I was hesitant at first, but have recently come to re-embrace the midriff-bearing look I championed 10 years ago in college. And thus I was dreading the impending Spring Fashion Week because I was sure my late adoption of the trend would only lead to disappointment when I learned that fashion had changed its mind and had become too high brow for exposed tummies.

But alas, here I am—giggling with glee as I see crop after crop walk down the Spring runways. And while we are only half way through NYFW, below is a selection of my favorite cropped (or basically cropped) looks so far. Cheers to many more exposed belly buttons to come!
