The Bare Midriff

The bare midriff trend should be restricted to the two-piece bathing suit, athletic/exercise uniforms, and traditional cultural garb such as the choli. Even when executed tastefully by pairing a high-waisted skirt and low crop top together to expose only a hint of skin, I don’t find this trend sidewalk worthy. An exposed midriff is unnecessary, especially in an age when plenty of photographs of exposed skin exist in excess. My mission in life is to look as least like a video girl as possible. I don’t feel the need to prove my humanity by flashing my belly button in public. Additionally, I get cold in air conditioning. 

When tying the bottom flaps of your button-up together, opt for a bottom with a higher rise such as the pencil skirt to keep your midriff under wraps.


  1. I couldnt' agree more! I've tweeted you about it, check my blog post, you WILL LAUGH!



  2. I have to agree here. I am always cold so I am always covered up. Love your writing..very funny :)

  3. Haha, agreed!
    I hate when I see a top that I like, hold it up and realize that it is cropped.

  4. amazing picture! all this blue made my day. it's been my favorite color (well all of its shades) since i was a baby!

  5. I absolutely love your blog. You're a fantastic writer: witty, honest, and engaging. You've got a new follower.

    (also, I may be linking to you, and your article on fashion's toll on our pocketbooks and health. I hope this is okay).


  6. I love the color of this skirt! So different from most of the colors in my wardrobe, but totally wearable. Love it!
