Half of me think 'uugggggh 80s' and I really HATE 80s/sports clothes. However, I've seen it worn really nicely too. http://store.americanapparel.net/rsabb380.html American apparel do some good ones and yep, I would say wear them with high-waisted anything just to avoid looking like you just came out the gym.

I like cropped tops a lot actually. I agree with samitizedfashion, they look good with highwaisted shorts or skirts if you're not confident enough to bare your belly, but they also look sooo good just by themselves if you have abs to shout about.

Well now is definetely the time to try. Maybe the best first time to try wearing one os on the beach cause then you won't feel as self concious in it as you might do normally. After all, your stomach will be on show anyway if you wear a bikini...

Thanks for the inspiration I like the idea of wearing one on the beach, and also I love high waisted skirts, so definitely could be one for me to try!

I have this one in purple, and a loose grey marl 'Chelsea Girl' one...

I don't know if I like them. They seem dated and very Britney Spears late 90's

Have a hard time pulling off a crop top as a male, i'd likely wear it with Jean shorts or Trousers rolled up, possible even with swim briefs.

I love a cropped top but you really do need to have a flat tummy

Girl About Town, I actually think that cropped top from American Apparel is quite cute, but I'd probably suggest wearing it with a highwaisted skirt rather than the trousers in the picture - they're kind of unflattering to say the least.

I finally wore a cropped top out in publice today 'cause it was baking in London, and some of the looks I got were hilarious! It's not often you see someone wearing a belly-baring top around where I live...

cropped tops can look good with high waisted chinos, or high waisted jeans shorts (so you see like (at the most!) 1 cm of skin between the pants and the top).

This weekend I tried a highwaisted black skirt and a black bralet. I loved loved loved it. Just something different.

I think a bralet is in a different category than a cropped top. Much cuter.
