    1. A wrap crop top that will make you push all your other less comfy, less chic tops to the way back of your closet, never to be seen again.,

    Promising review: "This top is SO very soft. It feels silky smooth against my skin. It's cropped above my navel. It can be worn to expose cleavage or not. The sleeves are a good length; not too short for my arms. The material is slightly thin but is really nice quality. The material is also very lightweight; perfect for keeping cool in the Texas summer heat. I'm SUPER happy with my purchase!" —Turanga Cheeks

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in sizes XS–XL).

    2. A crop top so cheap (5 DOLLARS!!!) and versatile you'll want to buy multiples of the same shirt, just so that you'll have some backups for your beloved basic tee.


    Promising review: "I have ordered some different crop tops hoping to find one that would work for me. I am tall and very large chested, and most of them just barely come to the bottom of my boobs. This one fits me perfectly! It hits at the top of high-waisted pants or leggings. Win! I love the neckline. I love the sleeve. I love the length of the shirt, and I love the color! I am so delighted! (And you can’t beat the price). For reference, I’m 5'9", 235 lbs, 40F, and ordered a 1X." —BarbL

    Get it from Target for $5 (available in sizes XS–4X).

    3. A bustier top you'll look absolutely strapping in, courtesy of the unique spaghetti strap cutouts and the fact that it doubles as a wire-free bralette that reviewers say is great for folks with larger busts.,

    Promising review: "If I could give this product more stars I would. I'm always nervous to show off skin, but I really wanted to get out of my comfort zone for a vacation I was taking. I only bought this to wear under a lace shirt and it has now become a staple in my wardrobe. You can wear this for so many types of looks and I get compliments on it every time I wear it!" —Alexia

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in sizes 1X–4X).

    4. A bell-sleeve top to channel your best vampy Morticia Addams vibes, and so you can feel like you'll be able to fly away from your problems with a flap of your sleeve wings.,

    Promising review: It's my favorite shirt I own and the number of people I've sent this link to is ridiculous. I'm about to buy it in every color. Like, oh, girl! This shirt is IT. You will be living your bell sleeve dreams shortly." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (available in sizes S–XL).

    5. A Madewell boxy-crop tank top to add a polished look to any outfit, whether you're going out or working in the office. Who says crop tops are only for the club?


    Promising review: "I am in LOVE with this tank. I have it in black, white, and blue-and-white stripes. The length is perfect and I think the 'boxy' fit actually falls nicely. It’s true to size for me and didn’t shrink in the wash (wash on cold and lay flat to dry). The material has a nice thickness without being too warm. Love the thicker straps so I can wear a regular bra. Looks cute with just about every bottom and even works under a sweater or blazer for work. Ordering a backup black and white!" —Keepitclassic

    Get it from Madewell for $19.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL).

    6. An Old Navy loose-fit crop top so while your midriff is out enjoying the breeze, the rest of your torso will also be feeling joyously free from the prison of fabric.

    Old Navy

    Promising review: "This is the cutest. I got the tie-dyed color in an x-small. I'm 5'2" and about 130 lbs. The fabric is thin but it's a great shirt to wear in the warmer months and the crop isn't too short (it hits the top of my jeans). Great buy for the price!" —anonymous

    Get it from Old Navy for $6.49+ (available in sizes XS–4X, also in Tall and Petite sizes).

    7. A mock turtleneck Brami crop top, because we've all experienced the overwhelming desire to cover up our necks while leaving our bellies and arms exposed to the elements, right? Plus, these tops have built-in bras so you don't have to wrangle one yourself.

    Klassy Network

    Klassy Network is a woman-owned small business known for its padded Brami tops that come in tons of different styles.

    Promising review: "Love this top so much! The medium fits perfectly! I was expecting the thin pads to be similar to what is in a swimsuit or sports bra, but these pads feel more like an actual bra and it gives good coverage and support! The cropped length hits perfect. 👌10/10 would recommend" —Heather K.

    Get it from Klassy Network for $39.99 (available in sizes XS–3XL).

    8. A scarf top that will have people turning their heads at your amazing outfit and your nonchalant "yes, I did just wake up and tie what looks kind of like a bandana around my waist" vibe.,

    Promising review: "I really loved this top! It’s a cute date night or out on the town top! I wore a bralette under mine because I am bigger chested. If you are wanting to wear a strapless bra under it then I would size up. I am wearing a medium and it fits very well and I loved the adjustable straps and tie in the back!" —Katelyn

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in sizes XS–XL).

    9. A twist-front crop that will hide ketchup stains and sweat marks, but will illuminate the part of your outfit that you want to want to shine — how gloriously high-rise your favorite jeans are!

    Promising review: "This top is so cute and good quality! I would recommend sizing up a size or even two since it’s really cropped. The M sits right above my belly button, but with really high-waisted jeans, shorts, or a skirt, it covers my entire stomach. This top is my go-to, I wear it EVERYWHERE since it’s so comfortable and stylish. I really like that it is stretchy and loose because I’m not a fan of skintight tops. I would suggest wearing a nude color bra otherwise it will be see-through with other colors. I will be ordering more of these tops in different colors!" —Shania

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in sizes XS–XL).

    10. An off-the-shoulder crop top that's the definition of party in the front AND party in the back, with a unique cutout and tie-back closure.,

    Promising review: "In LOVE with this top! It is actually way cuter in person. I received so many compliments and loved how comfortable it is to wear, and how it matches with many different outfits. One of my girlfriends ended up buying it after seeing me wear it." —Jules

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in sizes XS–XL).

    11. A splurge-worthy cashmere tank top if your loungewear collection is missing that last, luxurious piece that will make you sigh with relief each time you put it on.


    Promising review: "I missed the sale around Xmas time, but finally decided to take the plunge at full price anyway, and bought the full set — crop tank, cropped pants, and cardigan. I've basically worn this every day since receiving it and I have ZERO regrets about spending so much money as I plan to wear this set every freaking day. They are soft and make me feel luxy, pulled together, and not a complete COVID stay-at-home slob...This was my first purchase with Naadam and I will be back. So pleased. I am 116 lbs, 5'1", and bought the crop top in a size S (and the pants and cardi in size XS). I was nervous it would be too big as I'm usually an XS in tops, but fit perfectly." —Jina

    Get it from Naadam for $85 (available in sizes XXS–SXL).

    12. A square-neck top most assuredly on its way to becoming your going-out staple, because it truly doesn't get easier than throwing on a tiny top, some fun pants, and stunting on the world.


    Promising review: "You can never have too many tops like this! They’re so comfy and versatile. It has a good amount of stretch but is still form-fitting. And makes the girls look great! is a true crop top!" —Asos Customer

    Get it from Asos for $11.50 (available in sizes 12–26).

    13. A relaxed crop top that will last you through a million wash cycles without falling apart, a feat that will inevitably earn it its place as favorite stay-at-home T-shirt for years to come.

    Richer Poorer

    Promising review: "When I first pulled this t-shirt out of the package I was a little underwhelmed. The fabric seemed thick and not very soft. But honestly, after pulling it out of the hamper to wear three days in a row (hey, I work from home), I knew I needed more. I just ordered four more so I will now have that M–F WFH uniform I've been trying so desperately to achieve. A NEW STAPLE." —M.L.

    Get it from Richer Poorer for $40 (available in sizes XS–XL).

    14. A super-popular tank top reviewers say is great for light workouts, lounging around the house, or completing a chic outfit — and all with a padded built-in bra!,

    Promising review: "Exactly what I was looking for, and a great price! I ordered two colors and will be ordering more. These feel like Lululemon-quality material without the price tag. These tops fit perfectly (I’m 5'6", 135 lbs, and ordered a small). The colors are clean and gorgeous, exactly how they look in the photos. There is a built-in bra with padding so you won’t see any...peeking. I’m a personal trainer and needed something that I could work out in then throw a sweater over during training. I really couldn’t be any happier! Can easily be used as workout clothing or even be dressed up for a night out." —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $20.39+ (available in sizes S–XXL).

    15. And a Free People super-cropped turtleneck that provides some crucial neck protection but, like, zero belly protection. It's the perfect thing to wear at a library on the beach!

    Free People

    If you're looking for legit turtlenecks though, we've got those too.

    Promising review: "Please make this in more colors! It’s the perfect cropped long sleeve. Breathable, shapes to your body, and no bra required. Perfection." —Comfyandcozy

    Get it from Free People for $48 (available in sizes XS/S and M/L).

    The magic of a good crop top is unexplainable...they just work!
