It’s time to break out all of your favoritecrop tops and warm-weather gear so you can let your summer style shine.

A great top has always been the foundation of an awesome outfit, and crop tops are a style that’s here to stay for the season. Crop tops are available in a variety of prints, styles and fabrics. 



Contrary to popular belief, crop tops aren’t just for going out to the club. These trendy tops are perfect for sunny days at the beach, lounging by the pool or at soaking up the sun at the lake.

Crop tops are a chic summer style that are a must-have for every girl’s wardrobe

Whether you opt for a simple cropped, ribbed tank or choose a flattering printed, tie-front style, this guide will get you ready for your summer wardrobe refresh.

Read on to learn some of our favorite ways to style this trendy piece, and be sure to stock up on some crop tops as you transition your wardrobe for summertime.  

They Work Well With All Things High-Waisted

Crop tops andhigh-waisted shorts or pants make the perfect duo. A crop top balances out the high-waistline of your shorts or jeans, and can also create the illusion of elongated legs. This casual and comfortable style offers endless possibilities for outfit combinations. 

Opt for a crop top that just barely skims the waistline of your pants and high rise jeans that are fitted at the top and straight at the bottom to accentuate your waist.

If you’re feeling a '70s vibe, pair your crop top with an oversized cardigan, wide-leg jeans, a detailed crossbody bag and your favorite sneakers for a casual date night. 

A cropped tank with denim shorts and sandals is perfect for a day of fun in the sun, while a high-neck crop top paired with boyfriend jeans and stilettos makes a great outfit for a night out on the town. 

Pair Crop Tops With A Maxi Skirt 


Pairing your crop top with amaxi skirt is an effortless way to create a seriously stunning style. As easy to throw on as jeans and a tee, this elevated look offers the perfect mix of comfort and sophistication.

Opt for a solid colored cropped tank paired with a printed maxi skirt, simple sandals and a bright pair of statement earrings or other accessory for a look that can be worn anywhere, from a casual lunch with friends to a day of summer shopping.

You can even add a pair of sandals and an embellished bag for a high-style look. 

Heading on summer vacation? Choose a fun crop top with tie-front detailing or an off-the-shoulder top to pair with your maxi skirt for a laid-back resort style.

Maxi skirts come in all sizes, shapes and colors, and crop tops make the perfect counterpart for a balanced style. We have styling tips for midi skirts here.

Two-Piece Sets

Two-piece sets are all the rage this season. One of our favorite summer trends, two-piece sets offer endless styling options.

The great thing about sets is that you can quickly throw them on for a chic and put-together look, or you can mix and match the pieces with other items in your closet. 

Many matching two-piece sets come with a crop top and a skirt, pants or shorts. Choose a printed set for a versatile look with the perfect amount of flair, or a solid colored, neutral set for a more streamlined style.

Matching sets can be paired with a simple, short block heel for an outfit that is perfect for any summer adventure that comes your way.
