Fashion Q: Pulling a semi-cropped top off

..without showing skin. I really like this blouse but would like to wear it with non high-waisted bottoms (only have one high-waisted skirt), so I'm envisioning wearing a black cami underneath, tucked in.

It's hard to tell how much of the cami would show but I'm thinking more than an inch would definitely look tacky. I also only have square neck camisoles so a bit of it would show up top, most likely.

Thoughts?

    A black cami would look great as would that thing they advertise on TV that's like a tube thing that goes in that spot to take care of this sort of issue. I can't remember the name of it but I've seen it advertised many times.

    I think a high-waisted bottom is preferable, but that's just me. Does the photo below match what you have in mind in terms of proportion?

    I am not too crazy about that look.

    With a high waist, you can get away with exposing a bit of skin and still look classy and current (but you can also close that "gap" if the lenght of each piece is just right).

    Do you have a picture of the top?

    Hmm, I directly linked a picture of the blouse in the OP but I take it may not be showing up.

    Here's an onsite link.

    I wound up tweaking a picture of it in MS Paint and adding in a bit of black underneath (the camisole) and a bit showing at its neckline, and it seemed cute enough still, haha. BUT I will probably invest in at least one more high waisted bottom because I think it looks best that way.

    Basically I don't like the idea of baring my midriff at all for the contexts I'd wear this blouse in.

    Didn't save my 'artwork' yesterday so I just did another lazy picture edit..

    Hoping the space needing to be filled by the cami won't be much wider than this.

    The camisole would be tucked into whatever pants I'm wearing (my camisoles are too long to not tuck them in when the top layer falls short - it would definitely look silly proportion wise).

    (lots of time on my hands right now :D)

    I wear flesh or light tan cammies as close to my own skin tone if I wear a top like that. Flash without flashing.

    Now that I see the top, it's really not that short. I think your idea would be fine.

    Nice top! I second the above. It's not that short and your idea would be great. Love the white crop and skirt pic you posted, D!

    Thanks for the input ladies! :occasion5:

    Provided I got the right size (somewhat of a shot in the dark) I'll try to post a pic when it comes.
