When people started mentioning crop tops to us recently, we thought, "No way," even though American Apparel's been holding a torch for it for some time. When we saw some added to Oak's site this morning, we thought, "Maybe it's a mirage." But when Jazzi told us she saw a girl wearing a red cotton version in the West Village yesterday, we realized that this needs to be addressed. We can't really say that we know when this started to come back (is it really coming back?) Maybe it's a part of the whole return of the 90's thing (Rachel Green was a big style icon then), or maybe everybody's over modesty, but we can't help but think that this one's a little too early-career Britney and maybe downright ugly to seriously wear outside of the house. Maybe we could see it with something very high-waisted...? Or over a body suit or clingy tee? Otherwise, we don't plan on wearing it. But more importantly, do you?
