Mid-do and mid-don't

Mid-driff baring tops seem to be ubiquitous this season. It's a fun, fresh trend, but as MAK demonstrates, it is tricky to wear. Malaika wore a Shehlaa by Shehla Khan ensemble on set at "India's Got Talent". Personally, I think her top is a little too cropped. Ideally, an on-trend version should leave a narrow strip of skin exposed; MAK is practically wearing a sari blouse. The exposed mid-driff should be offset by length and some volume on the bottom (think pallazzo pants or a midi-skirt), and not a tight pencil skirt. Additionally, the lace trim on MAK's skirt is overkill when she's got so much exposed up up top.

Deepika's similar Shehlaa design at the Star Guild Awards is an excellent example of how to rock this tricky trend. Here, the exposed mid-driff is well balanced by the proportion of her voluminous skirt.
