Boxy cropped tees, tanks and sweaters seem to be all the rage now, and I can't help but to like the look myself, especially those paired with a big frilly midi skirt and sky-high stiletto sandals. But ... as a stocky short person with no waist and an office job where baring midriff during staff meetings is likely frowned up, it's not a look that I can really pull-off.
So my way around it? Pair those boxy short tops with a longer underlayer which adds some interest to an outfit - and bonus points if that layer has some interesting frills or lace or crochet detailing to expose. On the lookout for more hemmed layering pieces right now!
