We know, we know. Crop tops are for seventeen-year-olds with ridiculous metabolisms and unstretched navels but we challenge you to try this trend even if your purse is filled with granola bars, Febreeze, Costco receipts and extra kid socks.
Here’s how to rock the crop top past pubescence :
1. Over a dress
Maxi, midi or mini, the smooth look of a dress under the crop is pure perfection. You’ll look svelte and stylish this season.
2. With high waisted jeans or leggings
Jail your jiggly bits in a pair of high-rise jeans or compression leggings and your crop will just enhance the look. Cute and comfy. Pair with an oversized layer to frame it if you’re not comfortable with the shape.
3. With a high waisted skirt or shorts.
Feeling like showing just a hint of skin? A high-waisted skirt or shorts will make your legs look longer. Try it and see!
4. Over a neutral tank/bodysuit
Black or beige, you decide. This option lets you rock the crop without feeling like you’re letting it all hang out the middle.

5. However you please.
Listen. You birthed humans. You negotiate with toddlers. You can change a tire. Girl, you can rock that crop however you want.
- Make sure you’re comfortable however you wear your crop. If mama’s not happy, the fashion doesn’t work.
- Don’t feel the need to go rib height right away. Experiment with different lengths to see which one is most flattering on you.
- Wear a cardigan or open jacket over your look for a little security as you get used to the trend.
Not ready to invest in a crop top? No problem. Try one of these hacks:
- Tie up your t-shirt or tank top for a cropped look without any additional cost.
|Use a ponytail holder if you don’t like tying knots|
- Cut the bottom off an old sweatshirt for a vintage cropped look.
- Tuck in your top! Cropped look and zero effort. Concealed and cropped. Voilà!
