From The Runway To Real Life: Here's How To Wear A Crop Top Like Selena Gomez, Rihanna & More!
While on vacation in Hawaii, Selena and Justin wore mostly casual clothes — including brightly colored swimwear. While Justin didn’t match Selena’s bright fuscha swimsuit, the bright colors on his lighter trunks complimented hers nicely… planned coordination on his part, or are they just that in-sync?
This pretty peasant top has an elastic band on the bottom, giving you the option to pull it up and show some skin.
Selena’s such a beach babe! If you’re too shy to work the trend in most instances, wearing a shorter shirt when you hit the sand with a pair of shorts or sarong is a great way to look flirty and cute — wear it over a bikini, tankini, or one-piece!
Most gals wouldn’t be totally comfortable showing skin, but Ashley does it in a modest, effortlessly chic way in her Archive 1887 rocker tee. Following the less-is-more motto is probably the best way to universally work the trend. You could also put a fitted, tucked-in tank on underneath if you aren’t ready to go bare.
Whether they’re hitting the beach or getting glam for a night out, our favorite a-listers love baring their bellies! Sure, it’s a tricky trend, but read my tips & SHOP my picks if you want to pull it off — you don’t need a six-pack to wear a crop top!
We haven’t seen this many midriffs since the ’90s! Not only were short shirts popular on the spring/summer 2011 runways, but the trend is in practically every store — and on every star! From Rihanna and Ashley Tisdale to Selena Gomez and Ashley Greene stars are loving the look! I know it definitely requires some confidence, but you don’t need a six-pack to pull off the look. Read my tips & check out some of the shirts we’re loving right now. -Katrina Mitzeliotis

If you’re more modest but still want to work the trend, this top is best.
This top is effortlessly cute & super casual — you’ll definitely get use out of it!
Teeny tiny! This tank is great with shorts for the beach.
This option is flirty & fun — and it also shows a bit more skin.
Rihanna take a very high-fashion approach, pairing a crop top with high waisted pants. Aside from looking chic, believe it or not this is also a very wearable way to show some skin! The high-waist of a pair of pants of a skirt will conceal any lower tummy area you want to hide while a shorter shirt will show a hint of skin around your waist. If you usually try to accentuate your waist with a belt, try these varying proportions instead — you may be weary, but I assure you once you try this look on you will love it! (Splashnews.com)
Miley Cyrus played with proportions, pairing a relaxed pair of boyfriend jeans and an oversized jacket with a short shirt. This is another great option that works well on different body types. (Splashnews.com)
Ashley Tisdale showed off not one, but two hot summer trends — long skirts & crop tops! Like RiRi, she strategically showed a hint of skin — although she opted to show off a lower area of her stomach and chose a longer shirt. A top like this with a pair of jeans or shorts that are slightly higher than her skirt would be a great option, while I also liked the way it looks on her. It’s a great way to balance out a long, flowing skirt. (Splashnews.com)
