Every where I look people are wearing baby doll tops. A babydoll top is basically a baby doll dress with the bottom cut off (Think “muffin tops”–remember that episode of Seinfeld?). It’s cute and flirty, and loose fitting, which makes it good for summer days when you need the extra breeze. The problem with the baby doll top is that, no matter how slender you are, it can still make you look pregnant. They are something you can wear in the office for a nice, comfortable casual-yet-professional look. Wear them with your skinny jeans and you’ll have a sexy, cute outfit for hitting the town. The kimono inspired baby doll top with wide sleeves is big now, a hold over from the “Memoirs of a Geisha” thing. It looks good on a skinny girl, but on a busty girl it looks like a maternity shirt.
BCBG makes a nice babydoll top, which comes in black, olive and plum. Personally, I would go with black. Black minimizes the “bump” effect. Or go with a halter neck babydoll top–I think they hang better than the ones that have regular tank top straps.
