Summers are here and our B-town divas have found the best way to beat the heat. While they are setting temperatures soaring with sexy appearances, they themselves seem to have a common favourite attire – a cool crop top!

In the recent past, we have seen a lot of Bollywood divas like Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor among others flaunting their fab abs in crop tops. These actors have set a new trend not only in B-town but all over. These days, we get to see so many girls showing off their waists in pretty lil crop tops. And they not only look hot but oh-so-cool, don’t you agree?

Cropped tops have become the most important must-have in the wardrobe and have taken the world by storm. We have seen Priyanka, Deepika, Sonam, Sonakshi Sinha and several others teaming these short tops with different kinds of bottoms. Be it printed or flowy skirts, shorts, pants, cropped tops generally compliment all kinds of bottom wear and this has been proved by our B-town beauties. So, let’s take a look!

Priyanka Chopra is definitely one of those who has not just taken a fancy to crop tops, but flaunted it to create some stunning looks. The Exotic babe has been spotted flaunting her slender waist in them on numerous occasions. At the recent launch of her new single I Can’t Make You Love Me, Priyanka was spotted in a white crop top teamed with a sheer skirt and she looked oh-so-hot, as always. While promoting her new single, PC had stepped out in a For Love and Lemons crop top which she had paired with really comfortable looking jogger-style pants. During the IIFA weekend this year too, PC was seen in a Hervé Léger crop top that she’d worn over a midi skirt. That’s still not all of PC’s cropped top appearances. She has stepped out in a Koëcsh top teamed with polka dotted pants. On another occasion she blended a Bebe top with a Koëcsh skirt. At the press meet of IIFA 2014, Priyanka had picked a knit crop top from ASOS collection. No matter how she teams it up, she has always made heads turn in them, which gives us all the more reason to stock a few in our own closets!

Recently, when Jacqueline Fernandez stepped out for an event, she had worn a cropped top over a pair of shorts. She looked so cute and summer-ready! It’s not just store launches but even at awards functions where we have spotted celebs in crop tops. Neha Dhupia had teamed a DRVV crop top with an Ashish N Soni skirt at Femina Women Awards 2014. While her skirt looked unflattering on her torso, her top looked nice.

Even the fashionista of B-town, Sonam Kapoor has been spotted donning a short top. During the promotions of her last film Bewakoofiyaan, Sonam channeled charm in Parul Bharghava’s Mirage collection. The emerging fashionista of B-town Deepika Padukone too has been spotted in a white Zara crop top. While her top looked slightly ill-fitted thanks to her choice of innerwear, the tee looked rather cool on her slender frame.

While it’s quite normal for leggy lasses and thin-framed actors to choose to flaunt their toned mid-riffs, we were rather surprised (pleasantly) when the curvaceous Sonakshi Sinha dared to don a crop top. Sona went for Zara top, which she wore over a high-waisted pleated skirt. And we must say, we were very impressed with this Dabangg dame.

The trend of crop tops isn’t limited to our B-town divas. Southern star Tamannaah, who is now a popular name even in Bollywood had worn black over black at Top Gear awards. Her style was simple and somehow despite the midriff being visible, she looked classy in the crop top.

Well, we absolutely love this fashion trend of crop tops. And we’re sure you love it too. Here’s some help from us.
