Whether you want to go all out with an itty bitty crop top, or you’re more so looking for a sophisticated way to wear a crop top, there’s a style for everyone.

If you’re hoping to pull off a crop top this summer without looking like you traveled back in time, here are five ways you can embrace the crop top trend for a modern look.

Wear Your Crop Top With High Waisted Jeans

Speaking of belly-baring, if you think having your belly on full display is the only way to wear a crop top, you thought wrong.

One of the easiest ways to wear a crop top without going too over-the-top is to style it with a pair of high waisted jeans.

When you find a pair of jeans that fit you well, stay snug on the hips, and make you feel like a million bucks, pairing them with a crop top is a piece of cake.

In particular, look for a crop that’s on the longer side. You certainly don’t have to pick up the smallest option available to pull off this trend. Instead, find a crop that meets just at the top of your high waisted jeans. This way, there’s just a small sliver of belly showing.

See? Totally doable.

Having said that, if you have no problems baring your belly, one of the most popular ways to wear a crop top is athleisure inspired.

Yes, pairing a crop top and leggings is on trend, and all the biggest style influencers are doing it.

Now, we wouldn’t exactly suggest wearing this look out for date night, or other important events, but when headed to and from the gym, or running some quick errands, a crop top and leggings screams super casual, while also being super sexy.

Best of both worlds, right?

Wear a Crop Top As A Two Piece Set

If you’re on the hunt for a way to wear a crop top in a more classic manner for a night on the town, we always suggest picking up a two-piece set.

A two-piece set is great, because it basically gives you the convenience of a dress, but with a little twist of something different.

Not to mention, with just that extra bit of skin showing, it totally takes the style from average to hot, hot, hot!

Try out something in a solid color, like black, or go for something a little wilder by utilizing patterns and embellishment.

Either way, however you wear a two-piece, this is one of our favorite styles for rocking the crop top trend.

A Maxi/Midi and Crop Give You a Beachy Look

Have a bit more of a bohemian flair to your look?

If this is you, we always recommend checking out maxi skirts paired with crop tops.

In particular, something with a bright print is great for summer, paired with a white crop. It’ll make your tan pop! Not to mention, it’s super comfortable, perfectly beachy, and right on trend.

Easy choice.

A Crop With High Waisted Shorts

And last but not least, just as a crop top looks good with high waisted jeans, it also looks good with high waisted shorts for the same reasons.

You can choose to go for something sophisticated by choosing shorts in a higher-end fabric; however, the most popular way to rock high waisted shorts with a crop top tends to be with jeans shorts.

There’s just something about cutoff denim shorts and a crop top that automatically screams classic. Trust us, with this pairing, you can’t go wrong.

So, who’s sold on the crop top trend?

If you’re still feeling like this trend might be a little too ‘90s for you, avoid pairing your crop top with other ‘90s inspired styles, like fanny packs, hoop earrings, or platform shoes.

Having said that, all three of these styles are very in right now.

No doubt about it: in 2018, we’re all about embracing a fully ‘90s inspired look.
