Crop tops have been trending for so long now that it's entirely possible you've started to get sick of them. I haven't, because crop tops are my spirit clothing item. I've been wearing them since I was a little kid in the '90s and, although I've had my fair share of body image issues, crop tops have always made me feel like a rockstar. That's why I'm thrilled to report that the look is still going strong, as evidenced by the Spring 2015 runways at NYFW.
The belly-baring trend seems intimidating at first but everyone can wear them, no six pack required. Crop tops are the great fashion equalizer, or something. Maybe I just love them a whole lot and find them wonderfully versatile. If you found yourself groaning "Not again!" as crop tops traipsed down every runway from Erin Fetherston to Honor, I get it... but you're wrong and I'm here to change your mind. Because, truthfully, there has never been a better time to show off your midriff. Crop tops are looking radder than ever before.
Still skeptical? I'll let these photos from the Spring 2015 fashion shows work their magic. By the time you're done reading this list you'll have ordered more crop tops than one person could possible wear in a lifetime. Here are the 11 reasons for you to get pumped about crop tops for next spring.
