How To Wear Crop Tops Without Showing Skin

When crop tops first made their triumphant return to the fashion world a few seasons back, it seemed like they were just another quickie trend. After all, they’re pretty divisive among women, and not always the easiest to wear. However—to everyone’s surprise—midriff-bearing tops have defied the odds by sticking around, and it seems most women have figured out how to wear crop tops and look seriously cute. 

Crop tops are in this summer, but you may not be totally into showing that much skin. Whether you want to rock your favorite high-waisted pants or a midi skirt, I got you covered — literally. Scroll on for 11 looks that will keep you fully covered and in style.

How To Wear Crop Tops Without Showing Skin 

Feeling the crop top trend but not sure how to pull it off? Here are a few tips.

Tip 1. Layer it

Layering it over a slip dress is my favorite way to go! And such a great way to style with casually or dress it up!

Tip 2. With All Things High Waisted

When in doubt, just throw your cropped tee or blouse over anything high-waisted.

Tip 3. Cover it Up

If you have a little space you need to cover, simply tie around a jean jacket or add a belt bag!

What To Wear Under A Crop Top

If you’re looking to layer your crop top in an effort to avoid showing your stomach, you’re in luck because there are many options! Here are some of my favorite options that are also trendy and chic: 

  • Fitted t-shirts
  • Turtlenecks
  • Fitted long-sleeved tees
  • Bodysuits 
  • Other tank tops
  • Long or short sleeve button-up shirts
  • Any kind of dress

Different Crop Top Styles

Crop tops are a great way to show off your style and personality—but they’re not just for the beach or the club. With so many different types of crop tops available, you can find one that works with whatever occasion you happen to be in the mood for.

When it comes to crop tops, whether you want to cover your tummy or you enjoy showing your stomach – there is something for you. Not only are there thousands of different brands and colors to choose from, there are equally as many styles out there to fit your specific aesthetic. Just to name a few, there are tube tops, tank tops, halter necks, short-sleeves, long-sleeves, and cropped hoodies. Some perfect for casual events and some perfect for formal events.

Need an example? You could wear a peplum crop top with high-waisted jeans to brunch with your friends or a hooded crop, tank top, and shorts to the gym. You could even wear a polo crop top, a blazer, and a high-waisted skirt for more formal/semi-formal occasions.  I love the versatility of crop tops because there is literally a design for every occasion. Now – let’s dive into my recent crop top outfits!
