One of the greatest things about fashion is that trends will always repeat themselves. Fashionistas and Fashionistos, I am proud to report that the crop top is back, and I am loving every second of it. I love the versatility of the crop top – it's perfect for a day out shopping, lounging around or a night out.

This Fashionista has chosen a crop top that not only screams summer, but also has the great ability to transition from day to night. I don't believe in the "no white after labor day rule," and neither does this Fashionista. Pairing a bright colored crop top with her white jean shorts and brown flip flops adds great subtlety to her outfit, allowing for all the focus to be on the crop top.

I am especially partial to the cotton crop tops, like the one this Fashionista is wearing from LF (be sure to also look at the cotton crop top selection at American Apparel). I also love the diversity in the crop-top world; they can come in a variety of lengths, and not every crop top has to bare the entire midriff. I love a top with a sinched waist that allows for the top to be worn at your desired length, like this Rory Beca one from Shopbop. They can also be seen as having a bit of a train in the back like this Myne one.

Even though fall is around the corner, I think the crop top is going to stay awhile, and I see this as a great thing. Now, some may believe the crop top isn't for everybody, and I agree that not everyone is comfortable with baring midriff, but the great thing about the crop top is that it looks great alone or even with a tank underneath. One of my favorite looks is a "splash of color," and a black crop top with a bright tank under could be exactly what your outfit is calling for.

Hint: Try tucking in a crop top to a pair or high waisted jeans or a high waisted skirt.
