Crop Tops for Every Body Type

Crop Tops for Every Body Type

Few trends have managed to sustain themselves for as long as the ubiquitous crop top has. The trend has come a long way since the 90s and what was once a risqué choice of clothing is now being seen in numerous avatars ; from boho to sexy to chic.

The crop top is often perceived to be a trend primarily for those with nymph-like physiques and it is hence a trend feared by many.

Fear not. For, like with every fashion trend, even the crop top can be tweaked to suit your body type and make you look stunning too!

While this body type runs the risk of looking bottom heavy, with the right outfit this type can pull off the crop top better than any other body type thanks to their defined waistlines.

Your ideal crop should –

–          Be fitted. With a slouchy or loose crop top, you may look boxy

–          End just above your natural waist

–          Have some form of structure at the shoulder so as to make you look more proportionate.

Team it with:

–          High waisted pants

–          A high waisted sleek A-line or pencil skirt

Be sure to avoid excessive volume on your skirts and you’re good to go!

This body type can’t really go wrong with the crop top. However to avoid looking boyish, the ideal crop for this body type should:

–          Not be too fitted; a little slouch creates the illusion of a bust

–          Be slightly longer to look more classy

Team it with:

–          High waisted maxi skirts to create the illusion of volume

–          Slouchy/skinny high waisted pants

The crop top is the hourglass’s ally. No other piece of clothing accentuates the defined waist of an hourglass as the crop top does.

Your ideal crop top should:

–          Be well fitted and end at your natural waist line.

–          Not be long and loose, for that hides your perfect waist.

Team it with:

–          crop top/Pencil skirts

–          Mid-rise pants

–          Pretty much anything else!

The opposite of the pear, the apple body shape is characterized by broad shoulders and narrow hips.  Minimizing the torso and accentuating the w

waist will make this body type pull off the crop top with élan.

Your ideal crop top should:

–          Have a halter to minimize broad shoulders

–          Not have loud prints so as to draw attention away from the torso

–          If you have a large bust, you could even try layering the crop top with another top

Team it with:

–          Voluminous skirts

–          Slouchy boyfriend pants

Yes! You can pull off the crop top too. While this body type has to be a little more careful than the other body types, with the right fit and proportion they too can indulge in this fashion trend.

Your ideal crop top should:

–          End just above your natural waist line so that your narrowest part is highlighted

–          Be fitted just right- not loose or tight.

–          Have sleeves of varying lengths

Team it with:

–          Dark sleek A-line or maxi skirts

–          High waisted pants
