While they have pretty much become a wardrobe essential at this point, the words “crop top,” can still instill fear in us sometimes. But the fact is, crop tops can be super flattering—for all body types, at that. Whether you’re looking to try a boxy, slouchy silhouette or an ultra-sexy bustier, it’s all about balance and proportion. If you’re wearing a loose top, pair it with a fitted pencil skirt or high-waisted skinny trousers. If your crop top is fitted, a fuller skirt would look best.
It’s also important to find cuts that work for you—on both top and bottom. If high-waisted silhouettes on the bottom are flattering to your body type, almost any crop top will work. Petite body types can pair a cropped top with a mid-length skirt to give the illusion of elongated legs while those with bigger busts can opt to wear high-neck styles. But, just how everyone’s body is different, different silhouettes will work for different people. It’s all about feeling comfortable.
