The second installment in the Street Style series, this outfit is one of the most popular and commonly spotted among young college girls. A maxi skirt paired with a crop top while baring a sliver of abdominal skin is an easy go to chic look that almost all girls can carry. It's stylish while still being quite wearable in India. 

Every girl has a waist, no matter the size mentioned on the label she wears. You just need to bend sideways and find that level on your side torso where an angle forms, that's you waistline. And every high waisted skirt or pants should ideally start right below that level so as to expose the teeniest part of your waist. Similarly, the crop top lengths should also ideally end just above your waistline. This will create an illusion of an hourglass body shape and you can do rest of the body balancing by changing the silhouette of the skirt and top as per your body type. For example, if your have a pear shape body (bottom heavy), opt for similar skirts that I am wearing in this look and avoid body con skirts and go for embellished top or tops with big colourful prints to draw the attention to your upper body [Let me know if you would like me to talk more about how to dress for your body type].

Keep the accessories minimal keeping the humid and rainy weather in mind. You can experiment with your hair to make the whole outfit stand out more. Go for top knot for fuss free hair or messy side braids, these hairstyles would be perfect for the weather that we are facing these days.

Stay stylish,
