Our love for crop tops runs deep at R29. Some of us have been championing the trend since its early days of popularity, and others (like this writer) have only recently felt newfound love for the belly-baring wardrobe staple. And, while our instinct would be to stock up and start piling the shortened hems in our dressers, Rank & Style is helping us cool our spending jets with its search for the number-one-rated boxy crop top. The victor: Free People.
Now, let's be clear: The We The Free Boxy Crop Tee is only the best according to math. Rank & Style compiled user reviews and popularity to narrow down its search to one, 100% cotton, $48 T-shirt.

This option — with its basic shape and slightly slouchy fit — offers up endless styling possibilities, whether you're going for belly-baring with a boyfriend jean or covered with a high-waisted maxi-skirt.
