    The Crop Top Trend

    What do you think about this trend? Lately whenever I go shopping for blouses, tops or jumpers, almost everything, and I'm not kidding, is cropped or too short for my taste. Now I'm not exactly a puritan when it comes to fashion, I could say that I'm somewhat conservative in that I don't like showing a lot of skin, I don't wear things like miniskirts or shorts and the like, but otherwise I'm pretty indifferent (i.e. I don't mind jeans/trousers and "modern" type of fashion, as long as it's decent). So what is up? Is today's fashion focused on revealing instead of dressing? It particularly annoys me as oftentimes I find a model, texture or material which I like, but it's always too short. Do you wear crop tops? If you do, any ideas how to make them work?

    Yes, I've also noticed an overwhelming amount of cropped fashion. It's not really my taste either, as I don't like exposing my stomach area. However I've seen many women wearing cropped tops, especially teens who expose their belly button piercings.

    There's some ways to wear cropped tops without showing much skin, like for example with a high waisted midi skirt or a high waisted pair of jeans, or wearing a cropped sweater over a dress or t-shirt. Here some examples of cropped tops which I find to be acceptable:

    Sorry, I didn't read the sub forum seen the word "crop" and thought it was about farming.

    Anyway, my wife shops here:

    Don't think they sell crop tops

    I consider myself to be too old for crop tops. They're a teenager trend, not to mention inappropriate for where I work. Unless it's a cropped sweater or cardigan, which I wear on top of something else (t-shirt or cami). I usually wear those around the house.

    Crop tops aren't usually very flattering on the more generously proportioned ladies I prefer.
