Crop tops can be difficult to pull off and even a bit scary if you do not have a dose of sassiness in you. Having a small waist, toned abs and daring fashion sense are great combinations in pulling off this trend perfectly. However, if you do not have any of these attributes, not to worry, you can still pull off this trend if you have the confidence to take a risk with your style.

 

Below we have images of five different ways you can successfully nail this crop top trend.
