Forecast? A little drift.

Fashion's forecast looks pretty good this coming spring and summer but with a little drift, a mid drift that is. The crop tee of 2012 is coming back with a little update. Instead of baring your whole torso, the mid drift (rib cage area) gets its chance in the spotlight. This look is reminiscent of the 90s and was seen on the spring/summer 2013 runways of Richard Chai Love, Jason Wu, Peter Som, and Rebecca Minkoff.

In 2013, the mid drift top is being paired with high-waisted bottoms for those fashionistas who want a little peek-a-boo action without revealing too much. This trend is flattering on most because it showcases the smallest part of your torso, the rib cage. Remember, with this look, you're not showing your whole torso but only the mid drift, so dare to bare this spring and summer!

  1. I think that this look is really flattering for every body type. I desperately want to add some nice high waisted pants to my wardrobe so I can pair it with a midriff top and blazer. So many great looks here!

  2. ahhh this post was AWESOME- love the play on words too haha. i love love love this style- it's so fun and 90s, just like you said. and i especially love how it looks with all these high wasted bottoms. if you wore it with something with a normal waste you'd just look like a skanky high schooler haha. i wish i had all these looks!!

    1. Aww, thanks Marlen for your kind words! lol to the skanky high schooler comment.

  3. Gorgeous inspiration, I think this trend looks better on the runway than in real life, perhaps because the models have the perfect height to pull it off. It looks really chic though...Have a great Friday!

  4. I love the photos that you chose for the inspiration.I'm particularly excited about the long skirts, although I love them year round. xo /Madison

  5. Crop tees are fun, but definitely risky so I like that you say to just show the midriff. It's definitely more comforting to just show a sliver of skin. hehe

    great post, hope you're all doing well :)
