These are the best crop tops trending now and some of the easiest ways to style them whatever your comfort level wearing them.
Are crop tops in style 2023
Absolutely crop tops are a 2023 womens fashion trend and in style! Crop tops, like a lot of other 90’s trends and big for 2023. If you’re not sure about them, style them with high waisted pants, skirts and skorts to close the gap or throw a blazer over the top.
The top and skirt in this cute blue and white knit crop top and skirt set are sold separately. It’s designed to be worn together or to mix and match but ordering separately means you can order a different size top to bottom if you need to. I wish more bikinis were sold like this! It runs true to size but is selling out fast.
How to make crop tops modest, more sophisticated & stylish
Crop tops don’t have to just be super sexy or revealing, they can be more modest and sophisticated. I’m having fun styling these cute crop tops for 2023 and making them more wearable. Wearing high waisted styles of skirts, shorts and pants with crop tops is a great way of still wearing the trend but showing less flesh.
A longer crop top is also great for this. You can also layer a blazer over the top for a smarter look.
They’re one of those styles that you can wear with pretty much any style of skirt including pencil skirts, long skirts or minis for a feminine look.
If you’re confident wearing them anyway, ignore my comments and skip straight to the gorgeous, trendy crop top for 2023 round up below.

Crop tops don’t have to be super short or super fitted. There are so many different looks and styles that make it easier to find one that fits your personal style and comfort level. I’ve found some chic elegant trending crop top styles for a more sophisticated look.
I never thought I’d put classy and crop top in the same sentence but just look at this Valentino or longer length Versace shirt for example. Some of these classy tops are fitted and some are looser and more flowy. I’ve also added cropped sweatshirts for a cozy and casual way to wear crop tops in Fall/Autumn and Winter.
For a luxe for less version of the Versace cropped white safety pin t-shirt, buy the Versace gold safety pin and recreate the look on one of your own tees.

How to style crop tops in 2023
Crop tops and baring your stomach in public can be pretty daunting! Here are some tips to make these trending crop tops for 2023 less daunting, more stylish from casual looks to dressy, the office to date night.
- Look for volume in the sleeves and shoulders as well as on your bottom half. It will naturally create an hour glass shape and give the appearance of a smaller waist.
- Throw a blazer over the top of your crop top as an added level of comfort which is always great for when sitting down. Everyone has rolls when they sit even if you’re a 00 so why worry about it when you can do this simple hack.
- The most trendy crop tops for 2023 are matching sets. There’s some super cute 2 and 3 piece coord sets around this year from casual to dressier styles.
- For a casual look style them with a pair of jeans or palazzo pants and loafers.
- Make sure your crop top is the right size. A shorter crop top can be much harder to pull off than a longer style to nail this popular trend.
How to wear crop tops without showing skin | Modest outfit ideas
If baring your stomach in public is about as appealing as eating lettuce leaves for the rest of 2023, here are 10 easy ways to wear crop tops without showing as much skin and tips to make the crop top trend for 2023 less scary.
- Style and wear your crop top with a high waisted skirt. The Versace outfit above is actually a 2 piece set (crop top and high waisted skirt), not a dress.
- Wear them with high waisted pants to close or lessen the gap. I prefer to style my corset crop tops with high waisted pants so there’s no gap. It takes wearing a crop top from totally scary to me to something I feel confident in.
- Wear your crop tops under overalls so there’s just a glimpse of skin at the sides but it covers the stomach.
- Layer crop tops under sheer layers which are still in style for 2023.
- Strategically place cross body bags and wear belt bags cross body to cover more skin.
- Preppy styles are back for 2023 so you can always tie a sweater, skirt or jacket around your waist to cover up a bit more.
- Go for longer length crop tops, baby tees and tank tops.
- Layer them under blazers buttoned or unbuttoned. This is one of my go-to favorite ways to wear them.
- Wear them under a long jacket for a casual, trendy silhouette.
- High-waist jeans are great for showing a little skin but not too much. Whether that’s Mom jeans, skinny jeans, or denim cut offs.
