The super short crop top that bares the midriff is ubiquitous in my neck of the woods. For a while now, it’s THE most worn top by teens and people in their twenties. It’s worn year round — in heat, hail, rain, ice and snow — and on all body types. It’s usually paired with relaxed jeans, shorts, leggings, sweatpants, joggers, cargo pants, or skirts. On colder days the mega crop top is worn under an oversized shirt, shacket, big cardigan, jacket, or puffer that is open in front so that the midriff is exposed. Sometimes there’s just a small area of exposed midriff, but generally it’s more than that. The shorter the crop and lower the rise of the bottoms, the more midriff is exposed.
Due to the enormous popularity of the trend, retailers are styling many of their items with mega short tops, and across the seasons. If these tops aren’t your thing, you need to see past the trend and picture potential items with the types of tops you wear.
It will be interesting to see how long this trend maintains momentum. My guess is for a while because of the popularity of athleisure bottoms, wider pants and jeans, and flared skirts.
Is the mega crop a commonly worn item where you live? Second, what’s your guess on how long the trend will have momentum?
