One of the biggest trends of Spring 2012 is exposed midriffs.
Rachel McAdams in Glamour - Feb. 2012
This includes belly button-baring outfits, but most looks cover the belly button and only expose the area under the bandeau and above the belly button.
A basic outfit that falls into this category is a cropped top paired with high-waisted bottoms.
I love cropped tops; I think they're very flirty and daring, and I have no problem with showing my belly button.
Even though this trend does include cropped tops, the overall look is much more classy and elegant compared to what I usually wear and like (my style leans more towards edgy). I love this trend, but if I was to try it out myself, I'd tone down on the elegance and give it more of an edge. All the "put-togetherness" is just not my style, but that's not going to keep me from obsessing over the runway photos any less! (:
