Green crop tops are like a chameleon: they’re constantly there, and they’re always in vogue, but they take on a new form with each passing season. We still don’t want to get rid of them since there are so many ways to style them, such as layering them over a T-shirt, wearing them under an oversized jacket or flannel, or pairing them with high-rise jeans during the colder seasons.
Crop tops, from the lightest strapless bandeau to a lace-trimmed shell top, may be dressed up or down depending on the rest of an ensemble—see our selects for brown crop tops and nude crop tops. There are a lot of great alternatives that will keep you cool and comfortable all summer long, from the timeless appearance of white denim cut-offs with a basic black bra beneath to the fashionable addition of chic jewelry. Either way, clothing brands from all ends of the spectrum are hopping on the trend, including luxury labels like Jacquemus and River Island to fast fashion companies such as Princess Polly and H&M.
You only need to choose a cut that flatters your figure to enjoy these breezy clothes. However, there are so many options for shirts that it might be overwhelming to choose one. We’ve done the legwork for you and found 13 alternatives that will complement your figure and elevate even the most basic outfit.

2. H&M One-Shoulder Crop Top

The crop hits above the waist and will work perfectly with some black cargo pants as pictured.
“I love this shirt! I have it in many colors, it’s my go-to. I usually wear a size XS in tops but I get a small in this shirt.
