Crop Your Tops: The Aughts Are Back

Photo by Justin Bridges

Remember when bootcut jeans were everything? When flip phones reigned and a girl couldn’t take a meandering lap around the high school track without replying coyly, “Guess?” to any boy who asked who made those jeans?

The ’90s may have had a pleasantly tight grip on fashion for the past few years, but hints are popping up that it may be time to embrace change and move onward… if not to the newest styles, then at least up to the early aughts. Crop tops are fresh again, and there’s no better way to wear those abbreviated shirts than how they originally looked best; Guess did bootcut best then, and the 33-year old year old American company’s handle of the style remains solid now.

It’s hard to find a designer who hasn’t worked a crop top into a collection recently; from Alexander Wang to Carven, you’d really be hard pressed to find someone who isn’t catching the early aughties wave.

Still, it’s nice to know that the brand who was there the first time will be there for you when you need them again, and we’re all kinds of crazy about those logo tanks.
