FD&D: Popping the crop?

FD&D: Popping the crop?

From cropped tops to pants to jackets, the cropped silhouette may be currently all the rage in regular-fit but it doesn’t translate well to maternity-fit.  Despite this, many high-profile pregos have been going cropped. While I applaud those glamorous mom-to-bes, such as Kerry Washington at the SAGs, for challenging convention with their fashion choices, nevertheless the look is rather unflattering. The cropped silhouette looks especially bad on a bumped body due to the horizontal styleline it produces. This styleline visually expands while it also shortens the body. Since pregos are already in “expansion mode”, clothes producing visual trickery of this nature are real fashion duen’ts.
