Cropped Tops and Midi Skirts

Rachel Zoe, Topshop, BCBGMAXAZRIA, Michael Kors

I love the idea of pairing a cute cropped top with a high waisted midi-skirt.  I don't like showing too much skin, but a sliver of the upper abs (which happen to be much more toned than my lower abs!!) can be a very classy way to wear a cropped top.

The cropped top keeps the mid length skirt from looking too frumpy, and the skirt keeps the cropped top from showing too much skin!
In my opinion that's the perfect combination!
Add a fun pair of heels and you're all set!

There are so many different cropped tops that I love, but my favorites are simple shapes, with either a fun print or a cool textured fabric, such as sequins or leather!
I recently made a cropped top out of a leather jacket I had thrifted (here), next up I plan on shortening an old fitted t-shirt into a fun crop!

Here are a few midi-skirts that are inspiring me right now!
I've been digging through my fabric pile, looking for the perfect fabric to make a few more simple midi's like the one I made here!

What are your thoughts on midi-skirts and cropped tops?
Would you wear them together?  or Would you wear one, but not the other?
Have you recently worn an outfit with a midi skirt or cropped top recently? Leave me a link in the comment section if you have!
