After the holidays, make sure you jump right back to the gym because spring 2013 will require a lean and mean midriff. The New York Fashion Week catwalks sizzled with many designers refusing to hop off last season’s bare midriff trend. As such, bra tops paired with long pencil skirts, shorts and trousers peppered the collections of Peter Som and Richard Chai Love. Some designers tackled the bare midriff trend with cropped tops instead, with the likes of Phillip Lim and Jill Stuart sending out models in sleeved cropped tops.
The new season’s variations churned out bra and cropped tops in the most exciting of fabric, color, print and finish. From harness-like bra tops at Edun to an adorable Mickey Mouse-printed Marc Jacobs cropped top, spring 2013’s bare midriff trend is as exciting as it is petrifying for the self-conscious. Click through the slideshow above to see some of NYFW’s tummy-revealing looks.
