This summer has seen some very daring fashion trends come to the fore. First, there was ‘midriff floss’ (straps that wind seductively around your waist), then there were ‘napkin tops’ (tiny backless tops made out of very little material). Now, we’re seeing the rise of the ‘super crop top’, and it’s all thanks to a handful of pop musicians.

What exactly is a super crop top? Essentially, it’s a much shorter version of the traditional crop top. Usually with long sleeves, the top is only a few inches long, the hem not even covering the wearer’s chest. Some come with a bandeau top attached, while others are meant to be styled over a bralette or strapless top.

British singer Dua Lipa is something of a super crop connoisseur. She donned a long-sleeved body top for her performance at last year’s MTV EMAs, and more recently showed off a cream ruched version on Instagram.

Fellow Brit singer Charli XCX chose a short-sleeved super crop top when she presented the Outstanding Music Artist gong at last month’s GLAAD awards, while Megan Thee Stallion cemented the garment’s status as the style of the summer with her gloved zebra print design in the epic WAP video.

As you can imagine, where pop stars lead, influencers follow, and now super crop tops are all over Instagram, but they’re not quite so scandalous as some of the celebrity styles. Influencer Tamara Kalinic flaunted her unique take on the gutsy trend by pairing a black cami dress over a super cropped white shirt.

Several sportswear brands have embraced the trend, producing brightly colored super crop tops in performance fabrics. A variation on the kind of arm warmers athletes wear, they look really cool teamed with a sports bra and matching leggings. Another sporty alternative is the super crop hoodie, which fashion girls have been teaming with coordinating sweatpants or shorts – because why shouldn’t loungewear be sexy and comfy at the same time?
