When it comes to ways to wear crop tops this season, the key this time around is to keep the belly-baring to a minimum. The best way to wear the must-have crop top is with high-waisted skirts and pants that sit above your belly button. In summer, wear your crop tops with your favourite high waisted midi skirts for a chic ladylike look. In winter, wear a sporty crop top under an oversized coat or wear a cropped sweater over your outfits to create a layered look. Check out these ways to wear crop tops, as seen on the streets.
1 Chic Stripes
When it comes to ways to wear crop tops, keep it simple in black and white basics. Elle was snapped for Refinery 29 wearing a black and white striped crop top with a black pleated midi skirt. She accessorized with a printed clutch, strappy heels, statement earrings, and oversized sunglasses. This outfit would also look great teamed with patent ballet flats and a canvas tote for a more casual look.
2 Retro Inspired
Cropped sweaters are a great way to wear this trend when the temperature drops. This is another street style look we spotted on Refinery 29. The plaid pants teamed with a sky blue sweater make for a fun look, with just the slightest retro hint.
3 Black and White Separates
Gabi, from GabiFresh, wears a white crop top with a leather-look skater skirt and sleeveless blazer. It’s a crisp layered look that makes the most of this season’s monochrome trends. Turquoise accents add fun and fresh touches to the look.
4 Cropped Sweaters
Stacey Young snapped this fall-appropriate outfit on the streets of Seoul. A cropped light brown sweater teamed with a checked midi skirt and ankle boots makes for an on-trend outfit. The slight hint of skin and chunky ankle boots add edgy touches to this otherwise demure outfit.
5 Dressed down Neutrals
Cover up by wearing a crop top with high-waisted pants and a classic trench coat this season. This outfit was snapped for the Streetpeeper blog. The cropped top, rounded sunglasses, and Dr Marten’s shoes add a grunge vibe to this outfit. It’s just one example of how to dress down your classic trench coat.
6 Casually Cool
Boxy crop tops are great for working a casual look. Rukhmah was snapped for Glamour wearing a boxy cropped shirt with high-waisted jeans. It’s a casual combination that looks effortlessly cool topped off with a wide brimmed hat and slouchy side bag. The jelly sandals are also a fun touch.
7 Head to Toe Colour
This street style look, spotted on the Stylesight blog, shows us how to wear the cropped top in a more polished manner. The softly structured top is balanced out by the tailored pants. The head to toe navy creates a streamlined outfit and looks super stylish teamed with nude heels and metallic and red accents.
8 Matching Set
Lia-Belle was snapped by Jessie Bush wearing this matching top and skirt combination. The cut of the top and skirt is quite flattering and reveals the slightest hint of skin. The jagged striped pattern is also a fun twist on a classic pattern. Studded ankle strap flats complete this fashion-forward look.
Crop tops are inherently sporty. That means they’re ideal for working a sport luxe look. Lucillia was photographed by Brandie Raasch wearing a white crop top with high-waisted print shorts and a sheer bomber jacket. A clear clutch and retro sneakers complete this athletic outfit.
These are just some ideas on how to rock a crop top. What’s your take on the crop top trend? Which of these looks do you like best?
