Emma Roberts in a Crop Top and Lace Pencil Skirt

The Crop Top Is Required For the Perfect Outfit

Emma Roberts skipped a cocktail dress in favor of a two-piece number (not Darth Vader like aunt Julia Roberts), and we were reminded, instantly, of how chic the combo looks. It's not the first time we've discussed how un-scary the crop top truly is — and how many outfits you can assemble that actually show off less than an inch of skin.

Roomier tops, if long, can visually add bulk to your frame and tucking a blouse in, while chic, is actually trickier to master than at first thought. Whether you're planning an outfit for an upcoming wedding or a dinner out with close girlfriends, consider going cropped. To help, we've put together three pairings that would be a cinch for anyone to pull off.
