With high-waisted shorts and skirts swarming stores everywhere, we have fallen in love with the dainty and summery crop tops that go with them. This highly flattering style gives us a more sophisticated look than the expected shorts at the waistline with tees that stop at our hips. Show off your midsection while staying classy by choosing some of our favorite crop tops. These five crop tops are for the fashion-savvy, the the mature, and the chic. With everything from strips and florals to mosaics, this roundup of seasonal style buys has something for everyone.

This versatile tee goes with everything from high-waisted jean shorts to a pastel, high-wasted maxi skirt. Pair with statement jewelry or a flower crown to make the bold stripes more feminine and summery. We love how the classic short sleeves add a sweet girl-next-door look, while the black and white make the tee edgy. Whether you consider your style chic or punk, this crop top can be styled in any way.

Everyone needs a classic black crop top. Black is fierce and it looks fabulous on everyone. This modern bustier has a geometric style with thick straps and sweetheart neckline that goes well with metallic statement jewelry, high-waisted skirts or pants, and chunky black heels. We’d choose this crop top every time for date nights, girls’ night out, and to see our favorite bands.

Summer is for bold prints, and we think this preppy print does it best. The checkered print makes us think of romantic picnics in the park, while the pink and purple florals add a bold, stylish touch to fit any style of girl. The matching shorts will complete the look, but you can also pair the top with high-waisted black ruffled shorts, or a pink high-waisted skirt. Don’t forget to grab your straw beach bag!

Cut-Out Back Racer Front Crop Top

This formal crop top is laid back due to its gray, cozy color, but the tight style and side cut-outs make it more professional and mature. We love the idea of pairing it with high-waisted pants in other classic colors like white or black. This top would also go perfectly with a printed pant or high-waisted, distressed jean shorts. Wear with solid, strappy sandals and gold jewelry to tie everything together.

This crop top is perfect for our bohemian girls. The pretty mosaic reminds us the Greek islands. Pair the top with high-waisted shorts, dainty gold rings, and tan, strappy heels for a more casual, daytime look, and pair with high-waisted black or white pants for more formal evening attire. The stylish crop top looks exceptional with chunky gold jewelry, beachy waves, and head pieces.
