14 white crop tops you’ll fall in love with for summer.
White Crop Top
Forget everything you’ve ever thought about a crop top.
While the tight, skin-baring, barely-there silhouettes are, in fact, crop tops to some, there are many more elegant or classic ways to incorporate the trend into your everyday wardrobe without feeling as though you’re wearing little more than your underwear.
Especially in neutral tones, plan on white crop tops for warmer weather.
While a crop top will likely show a little bit of skin, if you wave your hands around in the air or reach for something on a high-up shelf, many crop tops in this list are meant to meet the top of your high-waisted pants and skirts.
As such, they offer a classic and stylish alternative to more oversized silhouettes.
To prove the potential of a crop top, we’ve rounded up some of our current favorites, all in a bright white go-anywhere hue.
From ruffles for the beach to feathers for a cocktail party; tailored shirting that’s best worn with jeans, and layering camisoles alike; we’ve got it all.
For every personal style—and every budget—shop our favorite white crop tops here.

We’ve fallen in love with white crop tops—and you will too. Because, in fact, they don’t have to be barely-there bandeaus to be categorized as such!
How do you wear a white crop top?
White crop tops can be worn anywhere—morning, noon, or night.
To show a little less skin, style them with high-waisted bottoms, opting for the cropped top length that best suits you.
How can you style a white crop top without showing your stomach?
High waisted bottoms, be they jeans, trousers, or skirts, are the best way to style a crop top without showing off your stomach.
That said, if showing too much skin is a concern of yours when wearing the trend, shop a crop top that—while still short and shrunken—falls a little bit closer to your naval than your bustline.
Why wear a crop top?
Crop tops offer a cute and shrunken silhouette without any bulk, allowing you to try boxier silhouettes, head-turning feathered trim, and the like without feeling as though it’s overwhelming your frame.
