Cropped tops have actually been around for men a little longer than they have been for women. Since the 80s, however, in part thanks to Madonna, women have been rocking the style. Cropped tops were initially part of aerobics wardrobes. Often, women would cut shirts to a cropped length and wear them over other workout gear. They were pretty baggy in those days! Now, you'll find cropped tops, jackets, sweaters, and more in the most fashionable stores. If you're wondering when to wear cropped tops, they're great all the time!
Update the 80s
Turn heads when you go out on the town by choosing a cropped top. We know you might worry it's a little too revealing, but we've got tons of styles available and not all of them stop right beneath your rib cage. Some cropped tops will hit the waist of your high-waisted jeans. Channel an updated 80s vibe without showing any skin you don't want to. Or do, because we know you can pull it off! Pair a shorter cropped top with some high-waisted skinny jeans to display just the right amount of skin.
Bohemian Is In
Go for a bohemian look by pairing a cropped top with a long, flowy skirt. If your skirt sits high-waisted, you'll only need to show a little skin while wearing this casual look. Free People and Forever 21 carry cropped tops with detailing that will complete your bohemian look.
An Elegant Night Out
While you may not find a cropped top that's appropriate work attire, some are dressier than others. A peplum cropped top gives you a bit more coverage, while blousy long-sleeved cropped tops are an elegant twist on the bold style. Jessica Simpson makes attractive, blousy crop tops. E-Lady and Rumor Boutique are other brands you can look at to find dressier options, pretty patterns, and great blousing.
Try Cropped Jackets
If you want to rock the cropped look but feel like it's a bit risqué for your personal style, you don't have to give up on cropped tops all together. Pair a fitted shirt with a cropped jacket; the look accentuates your natural waist and makes your legs appear longer. Sometimes we call these cropped jackets women's shrugs, especially if they're lightweight and made of a material like cotton. Though shrug sounds like something loose-fitting, we'll show you some elegant options that look gorgeous worn over a cocktail dress.
