26 Crop Tops to try this summer 2022

At Miu Miu’s SS22 show, models paraded in ultra miniskirts, skimpy tops and cropped jackets, kicking off a culture reset with bellies front and center. Thanks to Miuccia, midriff-baring crop tops have become a must-have wardrobe staple (no pun intended). The perfect match for high-waisted pants or baggy pants, the crop top offers a playful balance of proportions if you desire more coverage. Its most famous counterpart, however, has to be the ultra miniskirt, as if a bare midriff wasn’t enough. This summer, a new generation of small tops took over; think form-fitting party tops, printed halter tops, freshman tube tops, and more.

Chic cropped versions of men’s button-down shirts were seen at Miu Miu’s FW22 collection, a continuation of their previous season’s success, and also at Jacquemus’ latest show. Emerging designers like Christopher Esber and Matthew Bruch also took note of their cropped cotton shirt designs. At Conner Ives FW22, the designer took inspiration from the early 2000s and launched a series of tiny tees to pair with a drop-waisted skirt, a sentiment synonymous with the era. Find similar models at Adidas and Paco Rabanne. The form-fitting, silky evening top was on display at Supriya Lele’s fall runway show, while Victor Glemaud took a more minimalist take on the trend with a neutral tube top.

From the runway to real life, try on this new generation of crop tops that have taken over our wardrobes and our hearts. Here, 26 crop tops worth showing off.
