Return of the crop tops; from ramp’s glory to street fashion

Just when you think this is it for fashion, a new, over the top trend hits the ramp. And while most of the no-brainer fashion trends are born at the ramps and die at the ramps, the return of the crop tops sure had different plans. Whether contemporary or sexy, just a slit or midriff-baring, the fashion industry has tied the knot with crop tops for good. In the past, this trend was considered a little too bold and did not come home well. A penalty case made some news in the 40s when a lady was fined for wearing a crop top with shorts in central park. This time, however, the crop tops are sure to stay for good as more and more real women are head over heels with the versatility of the classy yet sexy look that a crop top has to offer. 

But let’s not forget the two important ingredients that drove this serious comeback of crop tops and made it more digestible this time. The first one of those was the recent anticipated “badge of pride” of millions of fitness enthusiasts; Female six-packs. You heard that right! As more and more women gave in to Pilates, so did the fashion industry. Who wouldn’t want to show off a teeny weeny glimpse of that painfully and patiently built muscular midriff? This was one of the reasons why the crop tops trend was so passionately applauded by fitness enthusiasts and their followers. We saw fitness celebs like Hailey Baldwin and Ariel Winter, supporting the crop top trend by wearing them to workout sessions frequently.

The second element that actually helped bring this ramp fashion to the streets was the simultaneous come-back of the high-waist pants. These pants complemented the crop tops in a way that only a little bit of skin would show wearing a combination of both. This encouraged real women to accept the crop tops very well. Women are now rocking this trend at homes, proms, and even offices.

No matter which side you belong, the one applauding to this fashion trend or the one shrugging away even the slightest idea of a crop top, the crop top invasion is surely making a power move all around the globe this season in its own different form and cultural adaptations.
