Crop tops are a pretty controversial clothing item for most people, but for me and most of the fashion world we all believe that crop tops aren’t controversial at all, they’re essential to any wardrobe! I don’t care what size you are or what age you are, you NEED a crop top in your closet and I’m going to tell you why!
Wearing a crop top doesn’t equate to showing skin (case in point, you can’t see any of my stomach here), it’s merely the perfect type of top to wear with high waist bottoms! And considering high waist bottoms are what’s in style (and I’m SOOO grateful for that because me and low waisted things just don’t get along), I’m sure you own at least one! I’m not saying crop tops are the only top that look good with high waist pieces, but I’m going to go out on a limb and say that they’re one of the best.
I know I know this might not seem like enough reason to as to why everyone needs a crop top, but maybe this outfit will convince you (or this one or this one or this one). Whether you pick up a ruffled loose crop top like this one or a tighter more form fitting one (or both) I guarantee it won’t go to waste. Plus considering the fact that they’re half the size of a regular shirt, they’re usually pretty inexpensive! To make your search a little easier I even put together a shoppable list of my favorite crop tops under $30!
