Crop Top Outfit Ideas

3 Real-Girl Ways to Wear a Crop Top

The crop top sounds scary to wear, but with chic street style inspiration and thoughtful approaches to constructing the perfect outfit, it's immensely wearable (even if you're not runway-model size or prefer just about anything to regular gym dates). Before you totally skip over the trend and mark it as something decidedly not for you, consider the three smart outfits we've assembled here.

Outfit 1 is all about proportion. With a boxy top that hits right at the natural waist, you can avoid showing any skin by picking a bottom that also hits at the navel. The sleek and sophisticated pencil skirt is the best option here and the pairing is positively slimming.

Outfit 2 turns the crop top into a comfy weekend staple you'll want to live in. No matter how fantastic your bod is, pairing a tiny top with a pair of low-slung skinnies aesthetically doesn't work. Instead, counter the could-be sexy top with a pair of high-waisted flare jeans. The high-rise shirt will show off the pocket detailing on this pair, and both combine for a retro vibe we love.

Outfit 3 takes full advantage of the return of the matched set as this Spring and Summer's surprise technique for dressing for a semiformal occasion. Think of the two-piece look the same you would a cocktail dress. Crafted as a twosome, both pieces will hit within an inch of each other, meaning you won't be overly exposed. In truth, the person across the room from you at the party won't even be able to tell you're wearing a crop top!
