Pair it with a long skirt

We know you love crop tops, but wouldn’t you agree that long skirts look 10 times better paired with crop tops rather than long shirts and tops? Who even pairs the two together anymore? Long skirts whether they are flowy, fish cut, midi length or maxi – all look dope with cropped length tops. And there you have another style to try!

Pair plain a black crop top – ribbed or tube fitted with a flowy printed skirt and make heads turn. Simple yet stylish!

Are you a fan of desi looks, but like not too desi? Crop tops can rescue you from the dilemma! Cholis are definitely too mainstream. A crop top can easily double as the traditional choli or blouse in ethnic outfits. You can buy a crop top with palazzo pants online as a great alternative that also gives you greater style choice. 

You can jazz up a traditional lehenga or ethnic skirt with a crop top instead of wearing a choli and amp up your traditional outfit with a fusion look. In fact, if you have many lehengas or ethnic skirts in your closet that you are bored of wearing the same way, you can invest in a crop top to go with them and revamp your old outfits. There is another great advantage here, if you invest in a crop, you can wear it with more than one lehenga and also wear it with the other skirts, trousers, pants in your closet to create completely new looks.

Buy a denim skirt 

Anything goes well with denim! Aside from styling crop tops with denim pants and trousers, you can go on a trendier route by teaming it with a denim skirt. Just buy a stylish denim skirt and you can pair any of your crop tops with it.

In fact, you can create some really chic looks with trendy crops and denim. Knotted crop tops are in vogue, pair one with a mini or midi length denim skirt. You can additionally add some light jewellery to go with it for minimal bling. Perfect for a day out with friends! For a date or weekend plans with your partner, go for a flowy crop top or an off-shoulder crop top with a statement necklace to go with a denim skirt.

Don’t shy away from wearing it with a saree or drape it with a long dupatta 

One of the most creative and budget-friendly ways of styling crop tops is to wear them with sarees! Crop tops are truly such a wonderful and versatile style choice.


To pair a saree with a crop top, go for a crop top of the same colour as your saree or a contrasting shade that compliments it well. Ideally, go for plain crop tops that elevate the look of the saree and do not look too jarring with a different design or pattern. Plain black or white crop tops are great for the purpose as they go with most colours/ patterns. Shirt style crop tops also look very boho and chic on sarees! Try them with a fusion saree, draped in an offbeat style along with junk jewellery to rock a boho look.

So the next time you have an event or party to attend, ditch the blouse and get creative by wearing it with a matching crop top.

With all these trendy outfit ideas we are sure you are amped up and all set to style your favourite crop top in a creative way.
