The Summer Shirt Style Every Fashion Girl Owns in Multiples

To some, summer is shorts season. To others, it’s bikini season, and to others, it’s sandal season. But to a growing number of fashion girls, it’s, undoubtedly, crop top season. Crop tops come in many forms these days, and many of them aren’t as scary as you’d assume, especially when you factor in the high-waisted pants, skirts, and shorts you can pair with them.

As someone who’s on fashion Instagram (IYKYK) every single day, I know a common theme when I see one, and that’s that crop tops have gone far beyond just being a trend—they’re a full-blown summer wardrobe staple. I’m willing to guess that many among us own as many crop tops as we do T-shirts. But for others who may find them intimidating, I’m here to provide you with fresh styling inspiration that proves otherwise.
