I love animal prints. They’re always in style, always look sophisticated, and are an easy way to break up an all-black ensemble. So, when I started to notice giraffe prints popping up on both the runway and street, I was a little more than intrigued. Bolder than a zebra print and more fun than a leopard print, this exotic pattern makes a statement like no other.

From Richard Chai to TOCCA and Nicholas K, there’s been a clear Grecian thread running through S/S 2014 runways. Picture a yacht in the Mediterranean. Muted hues mixed with vibrant blues and geometric prints. Flowing dresses with fluid lines and easy, beachy styling (see: wet, slicked-back hair at Richard Chai).

I’ve never been one to show a lot of skin – I typically gravitate toward things that are voluminous and flowy. In fact, I think I was sixteen the last time I wore anything stomach-revealing. So why am I so tempted to try out the new crop-top trend? Granted, these aren’t your 80s tops that require a six-pack and gold chains (unless, of course, you’re Rihanna). No, the new breed of micro tops are sexy yet subtle and show just a sliver of skin. Thinking of testing the midriff-baring waters? Take you style cues from these fashion-forward celebrities – I know I am.
