We are seeing crop tops everywhere this season. While we totally understand that the look isn’t for everyone, we must say, the trend has come a long way from the 1990’s Spice Girls days. A crop does not always mean belly-bearing numbers; in fact you can achieve a much more modest midriff look in a crop, too. There are so many crop styles, making it a wearable piece for any summertime occasion.  

The Boxy Crop
You’re off to a much needed girls-night-out. Not sure what to wear? The boxy crop top is a fast emerging trend.. and much more flattering than you think! Pair your boxy crop with a pair of slim pants, like these floral ones. Pairing these two pieces allows for a flattering contrast in proportions. This black, grey and white themed outfit calls for some cobalt blue heels!

The Belly-Baring Crop
Looking for a music-festival-ready ensemble? You can elect for something a little more revealing, like this simple white crop. Clearly we love prints, so we recommend you pair your simple white crop with fun printed shorts. Pick a shoe colour that goes with a colour in the print, we choose salmon sandals!

The Modest Crop
An evening dinner date calls for a ladylike take on the crop top trend. The pencil skirt is the essence of sophisticated style, a long sleeve crop paired with this conservative bottom combines fun with elegance. Throw on your fave heels, we think a nude heel is the perfect way to complete any look.
