Selena GomezC’mon crop tops deserve a chance. They’re really not that scary. They are not like short skirts or low cut tops where you risk a wardrobe malfunction. And they truly can work for all shapes and sizes. Don’t reject the trend because you think you don’t have the washboard abs of a model, or that you want to be able to enjoy the occasional hamburger or ice cream cone this summer. On this list there are only three-ish belly buttons exposed. Have a look at some of these crop top styling ideas and you might be inspired to cut your regular length top shorter.

Here are 20 celebrities showing you how to wear the crop top trend:

1. Kendall JennerKendall Jenner Crop Top

Kendall Jenner shows us that crop tops can be classy too. This is the chicest 18-year-old (or however old she is) I’ve ever seen.

2. Emma Stone

The Worst Dressed List Of The 2014 Met Gala Had All Your Favorite Fashion Disasters

Emma Stone broke two red carpet rules at the 2014 Met Gala: 1. She wore a beachy braid. 2. She wore a crop top to a black tie event, and she still was one of the best dressed. Who needs rules anyway.

3. Diane Kruger

Any surprise that Diane Kruger is an ex-model? Just look at those abs.

4. Lucy Hale
Teen Choice Awards 2013 - Arrivals

The Pretty Little Liars cast may wear some questionable wardrobe choices for teenage assassins on the show (not that I’m an expert on such things) but Lucy Hale‘s all white outfit is perfect for summer.

5. Kylie Jenner

Want to try the crop top trend but don’t feel like revealing your entire torso? Kylie Jenner’s high neck crop top and high-waisted jeans show just a sliver of skin.

Emma Watson has been making some daring fashion choices lately. I’m not sure if this is a crop top or a cape, but it’s a great piece if you want to expose your stomach but keep your arms covered.

7. Shailene Woodley

Remember when you used to knot your high school gym top because it was waaaaay to big? This is the high fashion equivalent. In green leather, no less.

8. Cara Delevinge'Charles James: Beyond Fashion' Costume Institute Gala

Besides her full eyebrows and tendency to misplace her bunny, Cara Delevingne is known for her stomach showing wardrobe choices.

9. Sarah Jessica ParkerSarah Jessica Parker Sex And The City Crop Top

So Carrie Bradshaw is to thank/blame for igniting the crop top trend. Here’s SJP filming Sex And The City 2 back in 2009.

10. Kim Kardashian

Kristen Stewart has worn numerous different crop tops. This wrapped version is one of my favorites.

12. Rihanna

2013 American Music Awards - Press Room Rihanna

When Rihanna showed up at the American Music Awards looking like this, I think people were too distracted by her hair, to notice that she was essentially wearing a plunging bra.

13. Mindy Kaling

Mindy Kaling kills it in a Topshop crop top at PaleyFest 2014.

I loved Mindy Kaling‘s matching crop top and pencil skirt combination to begin with. When I found out it was Topshop and I could actually afford to buy it, I loved it even more.

14. Jennifer LawrenceJennifer-lawrence-cannes-crop-top-hair

Jennifer Lawrence isn’t afraid to experiment with different fashion trends. This eyelet crop top and matching skirt is sweet but still sexy.

15. Katy Perry

Of all the crop tops that Katy Perry would pick, who would have guessed she’d pick this one? It’s positively tame compared to someone of the things she’s worn.

16. Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba MTV Movie AwardsJessica Alba went for a tube top version, but kept it demure with a pleated yellow skirt. Never did I think I would use ‘demure’ to describe a boob tube.

17. Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift Crop Top NYC

Leave it to Taylor Swift to make a crop top cute. Though she did also try a sexy version, remember this CMA one?

18. Selena GomezSelena Gomez

Judging by this list, white crop tops seem to be one of the more popular choices. Selena Gomez went for a printed version and paired it with a sparkly skirt, and pink pumps.

19. Nicole RichieNicole Richie Crop Top

I think I love Nicole Richie‘s turquoise embroidered crop top more than I lover her lavender hair.

20. Chloë Grace Moretz


Oh and if your excuse for not wearing a crop top is because you don’t want to expose your stomach, Chloë Grace Moretz shows you how to do it. Jaunty hat optional, but recommended.
