I'm going to go ahead and let you on in a little secret--I don't have a flat stomach nor do I have a "skinny" body. I've fluxuated on both ends of the scale throughout my life and have finally settled on a healthy size four, which is perfectly fine with me. Even though my six-pack abs are still very much in the works, I haven't shied away from the crop top trend. The easiest way to pull this off is simply by pairing it with a high-waisted bottom. A flirty skater skirt like this one is especially nice since the a-line cut is so flattering and enhances those curves. This way you can still be right on trend but keep your mother from shaking her head at you (not mine though--my mother is still shaking her head at me).
