The sartorial silver lining to being under 5'3'' is crop tops. Given our short torsos, crop tops not only fall at a respectable length (neither micro short or laughably long), but they also help elongate our stature. A sliver of skin guarantees the illusion of a stretched torso, with the bonus of accentuated curves. From off-the-shoulder to cut-outs, shop seven hot crops that we love.


The cool girl inside you is screaming for this utilitarian grosgrain top with buckle straps. The mini top has a curve-hugging bodice that will emphasize and flatter your shape.

Topshop, $48;


Try a minimalist approach with this cotton stretch racer-back crop. The contrast banded hem creates division and highlights curves at the waist.

Rag & Bone, $255;


Here is every boho girl's dream. The off-the-shoulder neckline shows off the décolletage while the gathered hem falls at the narrowest part of your waist.

Elizabeth & James, $265;


Go back to the '90s with asymmetrical front-tie poplin. Style it with high waisted denim shorts and your favorite tennis sneakers.

Tibi, $275;


Dare to wear cut-outs with this fiery red piece.

Marry your Bohemian side and '90s flair with this yellow ribbed halter top.

Power up the pastels with this cropped shell. Pair it with denim culottes or a flared midi to really play with your proportions.
