If there’s one word that could describe the hottest trends of the season, it’s daring. So far, we’ve covered the cut-out trend, open-back dresses, and midriff floss, but for the unconvinced, here’s more proof: cupped crop tops. The risqué style takes the crop top trend to a whole new level. Designed to outline the bust, cupped crop tops are cut short at the empire line and are molded to the bust. The bold crop top trend has successfully penetrated the most stylish wardrobes. From noughties fashion fangirl Bella Hadid to Dana Hourani, the Mirror Palais ‘Underwire Polo Top’ in particular is a hit among the cool girl gang. The Kardashian clan also wore the bold style for their latest fragrance campaign.

Styling cupped crop tops is easier than it seems. Opt for a neutral-colored ribbed style and team it with a pair of mom jeans or joggers for a casual look. Throw on an oversized blazer to build your own version of the bralette and blazer trend. Prefer to keep things more glamorous? Hunt for an elegant puffed-sleeved satin crop top à la Maja Malnar. Floral and gingham prints are a sure shot way to winning the resort-wear look.
