Was it just us, or were you equally as surprised when that whole crop top craze went nuclear after it kicked off last year?

Think about it—who hasn't exposed a bit of belly over the last twelve months? We've seen our favorite fit fashionistas wear everything from midriff-baring mesh halters, message tees, and leather bralettes to black long-sleeved crop tops, embellished tanks, and cutoff sweatshirts. Now the pendulum has swung back to basics in the form of a plain white baby tee that ends well above the navel. And apparently there's a specific way to wear it: with a bodycon high-waisted pencil skirt.

As you can see on Naya Rivera, Kim Kardashian (the celebrity catalyst for this particular pairing), and Aussie model Nicole Trunfio, that simple sliver of toned tummy is the main accessory here. That, coupled with the correct fit combo—a little loose on the top and a lot clingy on the bottom—makes this daring duo an easy instant outfit if we've ever seen one.

Ready to add this new go-to style staple to your wardrobe? You could always chop up your boyfriend's trusty old Hanes and DIY, or you can head over to ASOS and shop its range. We just added the Crop T-Shirt with Roll Sleeves ($18.52) to our shopping cart.
