10 of Fashion's Biggest Blunders

Crop Tops

If an item of clothing is best worn only by people with perfect bodies, that's pretty much the definition of a fashion don't. Crop tops are a perfect example. Unless you have washboard abs -- and let's face it, who does? -- you should not be wearing a crop top. Period. When a shrunken shirt is paired with ill-fitting bottoms (as they all too often are), we experience the creation of the dreaded muffin-top: just about the worst fashion crime you can possibly commit. And really, even the most hard-bodied should not be wearing crop tops -- it's not 1988 anymore.
