Today’s word of the day is Crop Top.

Disclaimer: This trend is not for the faint-hearted or more importantly someone who doesn’t have toned abs! The word is literally derived from “cropped tops” where blouses or t-shirts are short enough to expose the mid-riff.

*How stunning does  Indian-origin model Liza Golden look in that shoot? It’s no wonder she’s shot for the Kingfisher calendar and Lakme ad-campaign.

Rihanna Crop-Top
Rihanna sure can work those crop tops

This trend was brought back by the “Godfather of Grunge” American Fashion Designer Alexander Wang which soon permeated to many other designer collections -which finally got me passing over that plate of fries. If Wang started the trend then Rihanna is it’s biggest ambassador. Whether she’s performing or it’s just her street style RiRi works this trend almost all the time.

Leighton Meester and Freida Pinto both recently went for the crop top route. If you’re planning to wear this trend make sure that your top fits well. Do you think you’re adventurous enough to try it? Drop us a comment below!
