In contrary to popular belief, crop tops have been around since the 80s where these garments are worn as an aerobic outfit, usually in neon colors and are paired with leotards and leg warmers. During the late 80s and early 90s, crop tops plummeted down due to the popularity of the punk and grunge scenes but were later revived during mid to late 90s with the rise of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. While most of us would rather forget its origins in the 80s, crop tops today are now more versatile, and edgy boasting different fabrics, styles, and designs.
