Below, we’ll talk you through all the cropped top styles you need to know from casual to super fashionable pieces that your wardrobe will thank you for later!
Arguably the most versatile of all cropped top styles, a tank is the ideal daring piece to finish any outfit. Pair with a pencil skirt or high-waisted trousers for an evening look or layer over a jumper or t-shirt to add some dimension to your outfits in the colder months. Depending on the style of the cropped tank that you opt for, they also make for the perfect warm weather alternative to t-shirt and can be worn with shorts or under dungarees.
We love the juxtaposition of classy lace paired with the risqué cut of a crop trop for a perfectly balanced look that will be suitable for a range of occasions. Along with the lace, choosing a style with a high neck and long sleeves will help to balance out the cropped hem, making feel appropriate even for casual daytime looks.
These kind of cropped tops are ideal for summer, and if you choose ones in white or cream, will look stunning against a tan – so make sure you throw at least one in your suitcase if you are headed on a beach holiday!
It seems not a season goes by without Bardot style tops cropping up in the conversation, and with good reason too. This cut continues to remain a popular choice, and work particularly well in cropped tops, adding a retro vibe when paired with high-waisted mom jeans. For casual outfits, look for cropped bardot tops in light colours and demure prints, while sheer black pieces will be ideal for dates or a night out.
For the perfect blend of casual and classy, look no further than rib knit crop tops. Ideal for those off-duty days where you want to be as comfortable as you are stylish, they work well under an oversized shirt, with either shorts or jeans. For some added interest, make sur you choose a rib knit tank with some detailing, otherwise these can end up looking rather plain.
