The Sexiest Crop-Top Moments of 2015 — So Far
As any of these stars can attest, there's something about a crop top that makes you feel free. A slashed shirt livens up an outfit, makes any red carpet a little more fun, and gives you an automatic boost of confidence — especially if you've been working out those abs.
That's why we're celebrating the stars who've already bared their midriffs in 2015, many of them in the dead of Winter, which probably earned them a few goosebumps. But just because this look is daring and downright sexy doesn't mean you should write it off as scandalous. In fact, if Amal Clooney is rocking a crop top, then you know it's got to be classy.
Keep scrolling for all the inspiration you need to work one of your own statement shirts this Summer. Whether you decide to show just a hint of skin like Sienna Miller, wear one embellished with fringe or ruffles like Alessandra Ambrosio and Kate Hudson, or go all out in supertiny designs like Gigi Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski, you'll find two things to be true: 1. Crop tops can be appropriate at any age. 2. As Taylor Swift might say, they "never go out of style."
Gigi Hadid's military-inspired Black Orchid jeans may have been low slung, but that didn't stop her from baring her toned abs in a black knit crop top, which she covered with a longline vest. She finished accessorizing with Finlay & Co. Thurloe walnut sunglasses, a black bag, and snakeskin booties.
The actress pulled off all white just right in a Jonathan Simkhai crop top and flared skater skirt at Comic-Con. She completed her outfit with colorblock statement heels.

The singer turned up the edge in black overalls and a little white ribbed tee that was slashed at the waist.
The actress let her dotted Reformation set take center stage, choosing a neutral chain-strap bag and simple studded sandals as accessories. Of course, she added her '60s-inspired sunglasses too.
Leave it to Kendall Jenner to make a crop-top moment more interesting than we ever could've imagined. The supermodel chose a gray sweatshirt that cinched her at the waist, completing it with sleek white pants, cap-toe flats, her mini Céline bag, and a cream moto jacket.
Chrissy Teigen tried out the body-hugging look in SoHo when she wore a dotted pencil skirt and a sleek athletic-inspired crop top.
Karlie Kloss ran errands in New York wearing a black off-the-shoulder crop top and floral-print skirt, complete with a thigh-high slit, so you could get a peek at the model's caged statement sandals when she walked.
J Lo shows off her unbelievable body everywhere she goes, so we'd never put it past her to flaunt a crop top at the airport. She stayed on trend by completing the turtleneck sweater with a pair of flared jeans.
Sienna Miller's navy two-piece set looked luxe with black add-ons: a large handbag, flat buckle sandals, and dark sunglasses.
Taylor Swift looked totally dreamy in a floral Aqua set for date night with Calvin Harris.
Kendall and Kylie Jenner

Red-hot Adriana Lima stuck to a crisscross design that perfectly complemented her body-con midi skirt.
Jessica Alba showed us the modest take on a crop top by revealing only a hint of skin and pairing her design with a full skirt.
Kendall's Met Gala look got even sexier when she headed to the afterparties. She stripped off her Calvin Klein dress for this snakeskin stunner.
Emily Ratajkowski proved her style prowess by mixing blue and black in a Marc Jacobs look. In fact, she solidified our girl crush in that bandeau!
Ariana Grande showed how a tiny crop top can flatter a superpetite frame when she performed at the NBA All-Star Game.
Queen of crop tops Taylor Swift kicked off her 1989 tour in a strappy black design that she paired with a purple-metallic skater skirt.
Though Gigi Hadid's had plenty of supermodel-sexy crop-top moments already in 2015, we had to zero in on her sporty, electric look, which turned heads and flattered her toned figure.
Shay Mitchell's trouser set was complete with a crop top that boasted a plunging neckline and a tiny strip of lace, providing a feminine touch.
Jourdan Dunn looked totally edgy playing with proportions at the Burberry show when she completed her camouflage pants with a thick black crop top and leather jacket.

Amal Clooney's '70s-inspired Giambattista Valli chevron-print pants were enough of a quirky style statement, but that didn't stop her from playing them up with a furry crop top.
We swear this woman doesn't age! J Lo proved crop tops can still be appropriate at age 45 when she rocked this strappy white design, complete with side cutouts. Of course, it wouldn't be a J Lo outfit unless her skirt was complete with a leg slit.
Alessandra Ambrosio romped around in the desert at Coachella in bohemian maxi dresses and short skirts, but we especially approved of her festival style when she took a risk with this suede fringe-embellished number.
Miley Cyrus surprised us when she showed up in a full-on Miu Miu look at the 30th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. Her outfit was a mishmash of a few different styles.
