What did we do before the resurgence of crop tops? The shrunken, stomach-baring shirts of the ’90s have become wardrobe staples all year long, but especially during the summer months. (We can hardly remember life without them.) And whether you’re looking for a low-key top to pair with denim cut-offs, or a pretty shirt you can dress up with a flowy skirt for a summer wedding, you can rest assured that the top of your dreams, whatever it may look like, is available in a cropped version these days.

The ultra-convenient, breezy style is all you need to get you through the blistering summer heat. Into the bold shoulders trend? There’s a crop top for you. Want a simple black tank? Look no further. Some of these are so easily dressed up, in fact, that you can probably wear them to the office (our trick: a long blazer and high-waisted bottoms).

Below, you can shop our 13 favorite crop tops for summer.
