    By now, you know that crop tops are the unlikely revival trend that has stuck. Since last spring, we've seen a massive resurgence of belly-baring blouses and T-shirts on runways, on the street, and beyond. Now there are even different crop-top categories — that's right, categories. To the '90s kid in us: Look how far we've come!

    But with great trends comes great responsibility: It's not just a matter of chopping the hemline anymore. We have a veritable crop-top buffet laid out in front of us — and we're not afraid to say we're a little overwhelmed by all the options. So we look for inspiration to those who have paved the sartorial way: celebrities, of course.

    Tinseltown's finest have dared to crop, be it on the fanciest red carpets or on their paparazzi-documented down time. Occasionally, they've even been innovators. They came, they saw, they cropped — and we're taking notes.

    "I love crop tops and think they can be flattering to a wider array of body shapes than one might assume," argues Alex Sweterlitsch, "especially considering that the idea is to show the stomach — an area most women try to cover up." We asked seven stylists to pick their favorite celebrity crop-top moments and explain the takeaway from each outfit: What made it work, and how can we copy it on every 80ºF summer day? Click through for some cool, cropped, and collected #OOTD inspiration.
