Everybody is talking about how actress Tika Sumpter, star of The Haves and the Have Nots, got Arsenio Hall to cry when talking about Whitney Houston in the movie Sparkle. But I was fixated with Tika’s two-piece dress, a wonderfully punchy and graphic croptop and skirt bodycon. It was trendy, yet still grown, which made it all the better.

I’ve seen this graphic overdone to death, but there is something wonderfully refreshing about this particular style, that may have me pick up a dress… two.


Here are some graphic picks I wouldn’t mind trying out:

 My pick: Crop Top, $198 with Matching Skirt, Saks

Dress, $13, Forever21

Two piece dress, $17, Go Jane
