24 crop tops for a lifted summer style

There’s so much more to crop tops than a bare midriff. Cropped tops have become the perfect complement to skirt ensembles, the perfect silhouettes to balance the proportions of a puff sleeve blouse and, of course, a great counterpart for high-waisted pants. If you’re aiming to show off some skin this summer (or not!), opting for a more lifted version of the top brings your 90s club kid look to effortlessly cool. This summer, we’re looking for styles that go beyond the basic tank top or cropped tee. Think chic details like well-placed ruffles and delicate straps, interesting textures like ruched poplin or ribbed knits, and airy silhouettes like a top with puff or bubble sleeves.

If you’re on the fence, skip a tight top and you’ll feel more like you’re in a blouse. Or go high waisted with your pants or skirt to keep skin zero on screen. For those looking to do the exact opposite, there are a handful of form-fitting corsets and form-fitting tank tops, like Brock’s darling top, that will pack a punch. Houses like Loewe and Marni also offer cropped silhouettes, putting their own edgy spin on the summer-ready top.

No matter how you plan to style them, here are 24 cropped cropped tops that are sure to take your look to new heights.
