November: The Month in Celebrity Crop Tops

When we think of crop tops, lots of things comes to mind—Dirty Dancing, '80s Madonna, The Spice Girls, and that unfortunate early '00s low-rider-pants-and-baby-tee situation (Britney and Christina, we're looking at you). 

But red carpets aren't something we really associate with the style—that is, until this month. Last night, Diane Kruger stepped out in a voluminous skirt and an abbreviated button-down, both by Rochas.

And Rihanna worked a silky cropped Miu Miu cami at the Victoria's Secret runway show a few weeks earlier.

Lea Michele—in what was probably the most wearable of the November crop top looks—paired a leather Rag & Bone tank with a matching black skirt for an appearance on Leno.

And while Diane, Rihanna, and Lea opted to team their shirts with high-waisted bottoms for minimal stomach exposure, Ashley Greene really went for it, wearing a bandeau with her Wes Gordon sheer lace blouse and mid-rise pants.

These looks—excluding Ashley's—are all pretty tame as far as midsection-baring goes, but fashion is known for repeating itself in cycles. So, if the short, loose tees and belly-button-skimming bottoms of the nineties morphed into the jeans with 2-inch rises and bedazzled tanks of the 2000s, then this may be in our near future...
