Sure, there is the edgier, sexier side of the trend we've seen on everyone from Beyoncé to Lily Collins , but until now we hadn't seen crop tops look quite so sweet. Leave it to Taylor Swift  and Lauren Conrad  to make the skin-revealing trend feel downright demure. Each balanced her belly-baring top with a girlie, full skirt on bottom, giving the sometimes-dramatic trend a makeunder that's totally daytime appropriate.

Lauren's cropped black tee is casual and cool — the kind of top that could easily go from day to night. Lauren makes it perfect for a daytime lunch with a full, flirty skirt then balances it all out with a pair of flat, walkable sandals.
Taylor usually nails the supersweet look, so we were thrilled to see her bare a little skin in this Aqua ensemble. Still, the singer keeps her separates from feeling too sexy with a flared miniskirt and a crossbody bag that's perfect for daytime.
