Fresh Trends: Crop Top

It was the early nineties when Kate Moss appeared in these fabulous shots showing off her pouting beauty in an essential top. Before her, the audacious Madonna had already proposed the crop top in the most varied versions. Afterwards, other icons of the SoundSystem, from the Spice Girls to Gwen Stefani, during those years performed with micro tops of the most exuberant styles.
Ended up in oblivion for more than a decade, from the version casual and grunge of the 90s, crop top has been reproposed on the catwalks in a higher version: chic and "buttoned up" in lace or silk, paired with skirts or high-waisted trousers, or in a more street version, in jersey or soft tissues, with or without sleeves.
Many celebs have been yet understood the fresh trend and have revived each in their own style: Rihanna and Diane Kruger with low-waisted jeans, in streetswear version, Alessandra Ambrosio combined with high-waisted hot pants at the latest edition of Coachella, and Gwyneth Paltrow, Josephin and Beyonce in a super sexy versione, in lace with a high waist pencil skirt.
The most ironic of all, as usual, Cara Delevigne, with micro jersey top with cartoon theme.

Erano i primi anni Novanta quando Kate Moss appariva in questi scatti favolosi sfoggiando la sua bellezza imbronciata in un top essenziale. Prima di lei, l'audace Madonna aveva già proposto il crop top nelle più svariate versioni. A seguire, anche altre icone del soundsystem, dalle Spice Girls a Gwen Stefani, in quegli anni si esibivano con dei top micro e aderentissimi dagli stili più esuberanti.
Finito nel dimenticatoio per più di una decina d'anni, dalla versione più casual e grunge degli anni '90, il crop top è stato riproposto nelle passerelle in una versione più chic e "abbottonata", in pizzo o in seta, abbinato a gonne o pantaloni a vita alta, o in una versione più street in felpa o tessuti morbidi, con o senza maniche.
Molte celebs hanno subito recepito il fresh trend e lo hanno riproposto ognuna secondo il proprio stile: Rihanna e Diane Kruger con jeans a vita bassa, io versione streetswear, Alessandra Ambrosio abbinato a degli hot pants a vita altissima per l'ultima edizione del Coachella, e Gwyneth Paltrow, Beyonce e Jacqueline MacInnes Wood in versione pizzo supersexy con tubino a vita alta.
La più ironica di tutte, come sempre, Cara Delevigne, con micro top in felpa a tema cartoon.
