There's a look for every vibe and occasion.

It’s unclear what about the '90s and early aughts has taken over the fashion industry, but they don't seem to be going away anytime soon. It’s even more unclear why, in 2023, we’ve allowed some of the decades' most questionable clothing trends, like low-rise bottoms, back into our closets. Regardless of how you feel toward hip huggers, though, crop top outfits are have had a more welcome return.

If you’re skeptical of their return, however, you'll be happy to know crop tops outfits have (thankfully) evolved over the years. Plus, with styling hacks like tucking the hem of your shirt into your bra, strategically tucking and snapping your bodysuit, or maneuvering your tank top straps to create a ruched style, it’s never been easier to create a crop top look that best suits your aesthetic. Not to mention, there are countless examples of crop top outfits floating around, should you need inspiration. 

Although we love the looks influencers are putting together across Instagram, TikTok, and Pinterest, celebrities have also been expertly sporting crop tops off the clock. Ahead, we’re rounding up some of our favorite crop top outfits from off-duty celebs, that can be easily recreated with pieces already present in your wardrobe.

Make It Monochromatic

If you love a matching moment, then you’ll love the way Vanessa Hudgens styled her cropped turtleneck tank. The newly engaged actress paired the top with a matching mini skirt, chunky black heels, and a leather-style blazer jacket. The only details not adhering to the all-black-everything ensemble? The hardware on her purse, earrings, and, of course, her massive diamond.

At the Ballgame

Megan Thee Stallion’s look here proves even the most passionate sports fans — who’d never attend a game wearing anything but their favorite jersey — can get in on this trend. To make her team’s typically bulky merch into a crop top, the rapper simply unbuttoned the front of her jersey and, using the ends, tied a knot right below the center of her chest. She completed the look with a pair of matching high-rise jeans, and a clean pair of sneakers, accessorizing with a chunky necklace stack.

As Athleisure

Olivia Wilde took the athleisure route with her crop top outfit, opting for a cropped hoodie instead of a traditional tee. You could pair the lax top with practically anything — jeans, shorts, yoga pants, a mini skirt — but seeing as the actress was visiting the gym, she opted for a pair of leggings, running shoes, and a high ponytail. 

Opt for a Cropped Vest

Cropped sweater vests exude cool grandpa vibes. They are simultaneously cute and comfortable, and offer a vintage feel even if you just bought them off the rack. Clearly, Hailey Bieber concurs, and her effortless masculine-meets-feminine street style shines through here as she layers the grey V-neck over a cropped white baby tee and pairs them with denim Bermuda shorts, and a leather duster. Accessories, including a small handbag and statement earrings, soften the look.

Lean into the Preppy Look

Rihanna’s maternity looks were on point when she was pregnant with her first, so it’s no surprise that she isn’t sacrificing her style for baby number two either. The singer recently stepped out proudly baring her belly in a striped Loewe polo top she made into a crop top via the bra-tuck method, pairing the top with baggy, low-rise jeans, chunky gold jewels, and a square handbag.  

Mix Business with Pleasure

Gigi Hadid also wore a monochromatic crop top outfit while appearing on Good Morning America — but this time, the combination of a crop top and pencil skirt caught our attention. The model-turned-designer’s skirt does boast a slit, but you could opt for a more modest pencil skirt and lean into the contrast of a more conservative bottom with the skin-baring top and it would have the same effect. 

As a Pop of Color

Ashley Park’s crop top outfit is full of surprises. The actress wore a hot pink lingerie top underneath a smart pinstripe suit while filming Only Murders In The Building. It’s unclear whether the outfit was her off-duty look or part of her character’s wardrobe, but either way, we can't wait to copy it piece for piece.

Go Dressy-Casual

Ashley Roberts has come a long way since her days as a Pussycat Doll, but clearly, the performer still loves a crop top outfit. Similar to Park, Roberts’s look strikes the perfect balance of dressed up and dressed down: Her crop top and high-waisted shorts combo appears light and airy, but she pairs the set with white stilettos, a mini handbag, and a high bun. It’s a going-out outfit worth adding to your mood board.

Stick to a Color Family

Rather than sticking with one color, try keeping to a color palette the way Lana Condor does here. The actress leans into the neutral look with shades of cream and beige, but you could copy this outfit format with any hues you’d like.

Simplify the Style

Last but certainly not least, if your ideal crop top look is more low-key, look to Kristin Cavallari for inspiration. The business mogul and cookbook author recently stepped out in New York City wearing a basic but classic combo: a crisp, white crop top, distressed blue jeans, and white sneakers. It doesn’t get much simpler than that, and you can accessorize as you please, or not at all.
