Every teenager’s favorite ’90s trend is back, and believe it or not, it’s all grown up and all over the red carpet! In sequins, silk and wool, the midriff-baring top gets all dressed-up for formal affairs.
Jennifer Lopez wore one to the CFDA Fashion Awards, rocking a Ralph Lauren Collection custom number that was hand-embellished with 43,200 crystals; and Brie Larson picked a rainbow sequin creation by Rodarte for the Captain Marvel premiere in New York.
More relatable looks include Ciara’s Simona Corsellini skirt and Hanes x Karla T-shirt (which retails for only $30!) and Logan Browning’s millennial pink A.L.C. top (on sale for $207) and matching trousers (on sale for $198).
If you’re looking to try the trend yourself, “try pairing your crop top with a high-rise wide-leg pant or a full skirt, it’s all about proportions,” Layne Cross, Stitch Fix styling supervisor, tells Us. Another suggestion: “Take your 9-5 blazer to girls night out by layering it over a crop top in a solid or neutral color.”
