The stars are all about matchy-matchy cream crop-top looks for spring [Getty]
Kim Kardashian, the mistress of the midriff, has clearly not only been inspiring us (we called this look a major trend eons ago). In fact, she’s been setting the silhouette for her fellow stars too.
Kim's figure-hugging look is made up of elegant wools and cashmere in pastels, cream and camel (as well as the odd all-black look), so it's no wonder the colour of choice is cream. And now the crop top has well and truly infiltrated both high street and Hollywood royalty, often worn with high waist skirts in order to show off the right sliver of flesh at the most flattering point.

Now these mini tops are being twinned with complimenting skirts and slim-fit pencils. Note how the ladies above keep their look trim and ladylike. One could go very wrong with a crop-top so the key is to flash a small peek of flesh (unless you're Hanneli Mustaparta), opt for long sleeves, boxy shapes and demure skirt lengths. By choosing a co-ordinating combo, you'll also keep the flash of flesh looking intentional and authoritative - as opposed to a wardrobe malfunction.
