Can I just start this post off by saying, I am so glad that the 90s are back with a vengeance! But I am even more ecstatic that super duper low rise jeans are NOT back in fashion a la 1998:

crack is whack

BUT. It may be time to tone up those tummies again ladies because crop tops, bandeaus and bralettes are the ultimate staple pieces for summer. Luckily the hi-waisted trend is still rip-roaring (Thank Gawd), so have no fear when it comes to donning this 90s throwback look.

Check out some of our favorite fashion icons looking svelte in this cropped trend. These photos make me wanna watch Clueless and episodes of Saved By The Bell for sure!


Beautiful Blogger and model Natasha Ndlovu of Bisous Natasha keeps it chic with this long sleeve cropped style. Cop her look with MissKL favorites from Hellz Bellz. B: The Peace Long Sleeve Crop Top in Black. C: The Hermez Long Sleeve Crop Top in White.

Miss Miley Cyrus dares to bare some midriff in the city streets and you can too! Have a look at  B: The Tomorrowland Cropped Jumper from MINKPINK or C: The Dream Garden Crop Top From *MKL Collective to simulate her party-girl look.


Katy Perry looks summery and festive in her unique bralette. Find similar MissKL styles like: B. The Zip Into Spring Bustier in Blue From *MKL Collective and C. The Luxembourg Top From *MKL Collective.


Get bad like RiRi and steal the scene in a daring bandeau. How about B. The Essentials Bodice by Lip Service or The Debbie Floral Cage Bandeau From Obey?

Just remember, there’s no such thing as baring too much midriff…… JK, that’s why we’re happy hi-rise is back!
