Cropped Tops
I've always been interested in cropped tops and I've noticed this summer they're everywhere! I've never really purchased any because I wouldn't know how to wear them.. Any ideas advice or photos of celebrities etc. wearing some?

Would you wear them with nothing underneath, or a tight-fitting vest, a body suit, or how?

I love the line Topshop has for cropped tops, that alone is making me go for them!!

a few of the tops from topshop.com

Most people I've seen wearing them team them with high-waisted jeans/shorts/skirts.

I've only worn crop tops with high waisted skirts. The pluralism is hyperbole, I've only worn it once. Although slender, I've been endowed with that feminine paunchiness which I refuse to work out, so it's all good. I don't think I would ever wear a belly-button crop top, but I have worn the ones which are awkwardly revealing only a little lower tummy.

I love my bread/pasta/bloaty foods far too much, so wearing a cropped top alone without anything underneath is a no no for me. I love the layered look with a lace bodysuit underneath or really really high-waisted jeans/skirts.

I love the crop top look (and they are super comfortable) but... I'm not sure I'd be confident enough to pull it off (or that it'd go down well in my 'hood!). I think they work best with high waisted shorts/jeans/etc, or layered over say a bodycon dress or something.

I would wear the top shop crop tops to a beach, working out or for lounging around.

The fringy one would look great with a high waisted jean or pencil sirt but that's about it.

Great feedback guys!! Wow Ciara, impressive!

I like my bloaty foods too I don't know about wearing it sans anything underneath.. A laced bodysuit underneath would be nice and more convenient I think.. I mean I've got good abs but not rock hard! A top like this is something that inspires me to work out more lol!

And yeah CaitlinC to the beach is a great idea!!

this tried to take off around were I live about six months ago and failed miserably because lets face it 75% of the population dont have the figure for it most people I saw my self included used them in layering with vest tops or bodies underneath. I also think with crop tops baggy is defantly better IMO tight ones just look cheap

I wear cropped tops by layering sheer tops/bodysuits underneath. I love how faux-lace and mesh tops look underneath a crop top or high waisted bottoms. Worn the right way it looks great.

I've collected about 2 dozen 80's concert tees (various bands) that I want to crop,but i'm not sure how short to go and I want to keep them similar in hopes of developing a signature style. I keep changing my mind in terms of how much to crop off. I like the shirt to hit just at the waist in front, but raise it up a bit in back. My demo t's look good, just want to be sure before I make a move on the vintage threads.

Preach it, sister. I haaaaate this look. I thought it was okay until I saw it in person. I mean the girl was really skinny and everything and she had the proportions right with no tummy showing but it was just soooooooo atrocious. It just was awkward and strange and she looked stupid, like her shirt had shrunk in the wash.

Me too I've been wearing some like a cropped tee with jeans shorts at the beach looks great! And otherwise with a almost sheer top underneath and it looks superfun and cute, and well a bit different. The cropped tops are really oversized though which I think looks best!
