There were a number of naysayers who didn’t think crop tops would ever translate from the runways and red carpets to real life, yet here we are. For the last few seasons, crop tops have been key players in countless wardrobes. Plus, there are crop top fans who don’t even want to give up their belly-baring styles in colder weather. The popularity of crop tops has led to a few different twists beyond cropped T-shirts and tank tops, including co-ords, bandeaus and bra tops. The latest iteration being openly embraced is cropped blouses.
Out of all the cropped blouse silhouettes, a long-sleeve style with a twisted or tied front is one of the standout shapes on the streets, but there are many more options. There are more modest cropped blouses that hit at the same spot as a pair of mom jeans that draw inspiration from bohemian blouses with full sleeves and embroidery. Then there are shorter styles with wrap fronts, cropped sleeves and sweetheart necklines. All of them are cute, fresh and can be paired with almost anything, from the aforementioned high-waisted jeans to denim shorts to this season’s much-loved miniskirt.
