From Gossip Girl: "... I was even more horrified than usual at the stories inside [my daily newspaper], namely one about how crop tops are the look of the summer season. Um, no, darlings. Just no.
"Firstly, these styles are not for apple-shaped girls, meaning those of you who carry your weight in your tummy. Only a pear shaped fashionista (who carries weight in her lower half) should attempt this look, and ONLY if she pairs it with a fluffy skirt -- not a slinky one a la Katy Perry -- to avoid looking like a sausage."
