Tuesday, July 23, 2013 Bringin’ It Back: The Everlasting Crop Top

1998

Contrary to popular belief, crop tops have been around long before Britney went there… “one more time.”  As this timeline of short shirts shows, crop tops have been the most un-selfconsciously sexy piece in every girl’s closet, dating all the way back to the 1940s. To put that in perspective, that was before girls were even allowed to wear jeans to school! As the below photos show, though, the crop top is the ultimate clothing cameleon, blending in seamlessly with the style of each (and every) decade.
