The Crop Top Trend Makes a Comeback

Midriff Much? 7 Ways to Rock the Crop Top Redux

Miss Georgia competed and crushed the competition at this year’s Miss America pageant by belting out Madame Butterfly, swaggering in a magenta colored bikini and of course, donning glamorous evening wear—a crop top and mermaid skirt, to be exact.

Once an 80s staple on teenybopper stars and on pop singers like Madonna, the resurgence of the crop top is not to be denied.

Nowadays...crop tops are everywhere. From Taylor Swift’s nautical take to Kim Kardashian’s monochromatic blitz, the crop top has arrived and its here to stay. But for those weary of showing a sliver of stomach, there are many options for styling and showcasing a crop top without feeling overexposed.

Here are seven ways to make teeny tops irresistibly chic:

1.) Hail the High Waist
Whether it’s paired with pleated trousers or denim shorts, a crop top gets an edgy spin with a high waist bottom.
2.) Pencil It In
A sophisticated pencil skirt looks polished and professional when paired with a revealing top.

3.) Play Matchmaker
Ladylike and approachable, a matching skirt and top set keeps the crop top from veering into scandal territory.

4.) Be Breezy
Whether it’s parachute or palazzo pants, crop tops look effortlessly cool with flowy and oversized pants.

5.) Go Big or Go Home
A dramatic sequin maxi or an embroidered sheer floor-length skirt gives a skimpy crop top a gust of glamour.

6.) Crack the Coat Code
Make that itty-bitty top fit for fall with a long trench or wool swing coat.

7.) Layer Slayer
Mask the peek-a-book effect of a crop top by layering over a knit dress or girly blouse for a dash of demure.
