Fear not the crop top. SS14's leading trend is made a little less intimidating at Alina Alter's Aoki, where the midriff-baring staple reveals just a peek of what lies beneath.
After the jump, Alter shares an invaluable tip for keeping the crop top classy, then walks us through spring's two other top trends: anti-Easter Bunny pastels and dramatic floral prints.
Of course florals are ubiquitous this time of year, but spring 2014 is seeing much more bold and realistic depictions than past seasons. It may seem like a cliche, but I never tire of florals this time of year; I think floral prints are a great signifier of spring's reawakening, and this year's patterns are particularly vibrant and engaging.
