How to Style a Crop Top Without Exposing Too Much Skin

Crop tops appeared to be simply another hasty trend when they initially made their triumphant comeback to the fashion industry a few seasons ago.

Midriff-baring tops are contentious among women, however, they have defied the odds by sticking around, and it appears that the majority of women have found out how to wear crop tops successfully. 

It’s all the rage this summer, but you may not be a fan of exposing too much flesh. We've got you covered. Literally.  Whether you want to wear your favourite high-waisted jeans or a midi skirt there are options. 

Do you like the crop top craze but aren't sure how to wear it? Here are a few pointers.


A fantastic way to wear it is over a slip dress! A perfect way to tone it down and add some warmth during season changes.  Another layering option can be layering over the crop top.  Consider wearing it with overall dresses, jumpsuits, or rompers.


When in doubt, layer a cropped shirt or blouse over a high-waisted piece.  Including but not limited to high-waisted jeans, skirts, pants and shorts. 


If you need to cover a little area, simply wrap a jean jacket over it or add a belt bag! This tip will still boast a clean finish, but with very little skin exposure. 

Embrace the crop top trend, wearing them with high-waist skirts, jeans, or dresses. If you’re looking for some inspiration on style a “crop top”, continue to scroll down below for some ideas.
