If styled the right way, crop tops can offer a playful balance of proportions and the desired amount of coverage. Currently a fad at runways, crop tops have been ruling the fashion scene, with models baring their midriffs or sporting one with ultra-high-waisted pants.
Crop tops are a wardrobe staple for fashionistas for the extra bling and casual dressers for comfort. Whether paired with skinny jeans or formal pants, a mini skirt or a long flowy one, a jacket or even a blazer – crop tops have become the most versatile item that can be paired with anything and everything.

What are crop tops?
While we have seen enough of them being pulled off in the mightiest and sexiest of ways around us, crop tops do need a sombre definition to mark their periphery.
A crop top, also known as the half shirt, belly shirt, tummy/midriff top, cut-off shirt, etc., is a piece of clothing or top that exposes the waist, navel, or abdomen of the wearer. What a bland description!
Let’s spice this up a bit. Smaller than a regular top, a crop top hides and bares while proportioning your body in the Golden Ratio, i.e., it makes your torso appear smaller, and your legs appear longer. There you have your answer – why are crop tops sexy and comfy?
Have you visited Shein’s crop top section?
If not, we insist that you do a Google search ‘crop top shein’ and explore the styles. The website is a treasure trove of the finest crop tops of different fits, sizes, colours, and designs. Whether you are looking for an off-shoulder crop top, a halterneck crop top, a t-shirt crop top, a ruffled sleeve crop top, or an animal prints crop top. The list is never-ending.
Are crop tops suitable for every body type?
Yes, yes, and a simple, straightforward yes. Crop tops come in so many designs, fits, and sizes that they can flatter every type of body. However, we do need some kind of encouragement to pull a crop top with style and sass if we are a bit curvy or don’t possess the much coveted, much-hyped flat tummy.
And hey, gal! You can pull crop tops with flair and style and have the temperatures soaring. Look at influencers like Katana Fatale, Gabifresh and more are pulling off the crop top looks like never before.
Yes, different styles suit different body types, but to body shame someone in the name of fashion – Nah! There’s more to a crop top than a teeny, weeny bit of clothing.
How to style your crop top and slay the look?
While there can be infinite permutations and combinations of pairing different types of crop tops with different pieces of clothing, we have jotted down 5 of the sassiest yet most comfy looks we could find across the fashion scene:
1. Carry the classic look with high-waisted jeans or jeggings
Planning an outing with your besties? You would want to go casual yet comfortable to be able to manage all the adventure and fun together. A camisole crop top, a tank crop top, or a T-shirt crop top paired with a pair of high-waisted jeans, jeggings, flared pants, or palazzos can be a great way to carry a chic yet comfy look.
2. Go bold with patterns and prints
Play with patterns and prints, add drama to your ensemble with ruffles or sleeves, or even bare those shoulders with an off-shoulder crop top. There’s a lot you can do with a humble crop top. Remember to balance your outfit and go for solid colours or well-matched prints in your bottoms. Check out Shein’s collection of crop tops for blouses in various patterns and prints.
3. Slay the formal look with a blazer and formal pants
Who says you cannot rock a crop top while at work? Add a blazer and high-waisted pants, and you will take the corporate world by storm! Pair a tube crop top with a patterned blazer and matching pants, or add a solid-coloured palazzo or pencil skirt with your full-sleeved crop top. Add accessories such as a belt or a bag to make a bold statement. Layer it up!
4. Dazzle it with Sequins, feathers, and ruffles
Intending to go to a party? Sequin crop tops from Shein would never disappoint you. Pair them with your leather pants for that extra bling, or tone down with a subtle-toned and well-tailored bottom. Lace it up or go all sheer or add that drama with feathers. Sexy and bold is the new beautiful.
5. Add the oomph with a skirt
Gone are the days when a skirt needed a t-shirt or an extra feminine blouse. Lacy crop tops, one-shoulder crop tops, or any crop top, when paired with a mini, midi, or a long skirt, can make the heads turn as you strut your way through the streets. Add danglers or hoops for that extra touch.
