The Chronicles of the Crop Top

The Chronicles of the Crop Top

The current fashion trend that is loved by most young people has existed for quite a long time, and after a period of ups and downs, it has secured a stable position in the international fashion industry.

It has taken quite a long time for the cropped shirt to once again become fashionable. If you have never looked at this short shirt, or are not a big fan of the “cool” crop-top fashion style, you should learn about its development. You will surely be surprised by its longevity! Nowadays it is not difficult to see a short-cut shirt on the street or even on red carpets and big celebrity events. But when asking about its first appearance, you probably still don’t know. The crop top, as it is known today, first appeared in the Middle East and was worn by belly dancers. The design of the shirt is similar to shirts for modern dancers, made up of two pieces and having many embellished details. Since the birth of the shirt, many fashion analysts believe that it was a new breakthrough associated with the introduction of North American fashion. In 1893, at the Chicago World’s Fair, the shirt officially became a topic of public discussion when it brought strong fashion emotions and cutout lines to the wearer’s body.

In the past, women rarely wore short shirts as an everyday street outfit, except for the liberal Gypsy/bohemian style which often wore them. After that, this shirt style also became quite popular in the modern fashion style of Western youth. After a while, the cropped shirt gradually lost its style when it no longer appeared on fashion catwalks. Long-form shirts began to dominate the market and “pushed” mid-length shirts back into outdated fashion. However, due to its failure in the fashion market, the short-shirted girls have lost their form. The evidence is that in the 19th century, the craze for short shirts began to truly enter its golden age.

In the 1940s and 1950s, cropped shirts officially returned to fashion, which is considered a happy repetition of designs during this period. At this stage, the designs were still traditional, and the shirt designs and materials were still sketchy and had not had a strong breakthrough. People often combined crop tops with high-waisted pants or skirts. The peak of the golden age of the crop top can be mentioned in the 70s, 80s, and the girl Madonna. At that time, she was a fashion icon gaining attention, especially when she appeared in the movie Clueless, wearing a low-cut sweater. At first, many people thought she was pursuing an outdated style, but soon after, the cropped shirt trend became popular and was loved by many people.

In 1999, Britney Spears once again sparked the trend of crop tops when she wore one in the music video for “Baby One More Time”. Fans were excited to see her dancing in the classroom like a rebel. This sparked the trend of crop tops for girls with strong personalities. Fashion brands such as Zara, Mango, H&M, and MARCOSEE all have their own crop top lines to meet the needs of fashion lovers. Not only are they simple and comfortable, crop tops also give the wearer a liberal, natural style that is both discreet and moderately revealing. From East to West, from Asia to Europe, it is easy to see a very sexy but also extremely generous girl wearing a crop top, high-waisted pants, and a pair of Converse, creating a super healthy style with widespread influence. From actors, singers, to fashionistas or simply a girl who doesn’t pay much attention to fashion, it is hard to escape the charm and enchantment of the crop top.

Miley Cyrus, Ashley Tisdale, Katy Perry, Scarlett Johansson.. are the favorites of this fashion style
