Kim Kardashian has become a bit of a pro at flashing her mid-riff with her signature crop-top and skirt combo styleand now other A-listers are jumping on the bandwagon too (including Kim's sisters Khloe and Kendall). One of the biggest new season trends, both on and off the catwalk – crop tops have never been so chic. Oscar nominee Lupita Nyong'o is the latest Hollywood starlet to steal Kim's style as she stepped onto the red carpet last night wearing a cute Giambattista Valli duo with Sophia Webster heels. Talk about a winning combination!

If you're not comfortable having your midriff on show, why not choose a top and skirt that just meet in the middle? But if you are brave enough to give this look a go (believe us it can be super flattering), the particular slice of stomach on display is carefully chosen here. It's above the belly button,  and thus the slimmest section of the waist for most. Note the general absence of the belly button too to ensure a sexy yet equally sophisticated and flattering look. 

The great thing about investing in one of these duos is that they can be paired with various other separates from your existing wardrobe. We've hot picked some of our favourite sets and also some of the coolest crop tops around for you to shop in time for the weaken Team with a slick pointed stiletto and an oversize coat, Kim K style and you're good to go.
