Exposed midriff is a huge trend this summer. When done right, it can be really glamorous, chic and sexy. Here are a couple rules I like to stick by: no belly buttons and loose/tight combinations. To avoid showing your belly button, wear a high waist. I went with a high waisted high-low skirt and wore my Guess Embellished Eyelet Bralette. What I mean by loose/tight is since my cropped top was extremely fitted, I balanced that out with a looser, more flowy skirt.
Another reason why this outfit works is because of the high-low skirt. Its halfway see-through, which makes it seem like I'm covered up yet I'm still showing skin. If my skirt was just short, this outfit would quickly go from chic to cheap. If the skirt wasn't transparent, I might feel like I have too much fabric on and seem off balance with my top. The key to exposing is balance.
I stuck with silver and metallic tones because of the silver jewels on my Guess Embellished Eyelet Bralette. I just love the contrast of the metallic heels with the pastel colors!
