It seems like 90s fashion has been making a come back this year, everything from overalls, jelly shoes, Dr.Martens & reflective sunglasses. Last week I went all nostalgic on the skort. But a 90s piece that I’m absolutely in love with and glad its back is the crop top.
My all time 90s favorite artist, Aaliyah was the queen of the crop top! She knew how to dress it up like a bawss. She had a way of combining tomboy and feminine pieces to create just the right amount of sex appeal, which was known as her signature style.
To say that I idolized her style is understated. I remember dancing to “Are You That Somebody?” in my crop top & baggy pants for hours in my room LOL…those were the days!

But I’m also liking this new twist on styling the crop top, unlike in the 90s when the focus was showing the whole midriff, accessorized with belly jewelry. In 2013, pairing crop tops with high waist pants and skirts creates a peekaboo effect. Showing just enough skin to keep the whole look understated but classy. Perfect for the grown & sexy.
Here are a couple of crop tops, I got my eyes on. Which one’s your favorite?
