If you're the type of person who likes to keep their closet as plain and versatile as possible, then you already know that a basic T-shirt is a must-have, preferably in several neutral colors. Sure, more polished pieces like LBDs and blazers are important, too, but tees will be your most reliable companions on the mundane days—and let's face it, that's most of them. The wardrobe staple is available in a variety of cuts, fabrics, silhouettes, and styles and if you ask us, a crop top should definitely be one that you stock up on.
It's exactly what it sounds like: A basic T-shirt, sometimes a tank or a blouse, but, well, shorter. Its hem usually falls around the waist or just below it, making the crop top the perfect piece to pair with high-waisted bottoms. If you're looking to add some to your collection—because you can never really have too many—you'll want to check out Uniqlo's latest drop. Their new line of Cropped T-shirts is perfect for your capsule closet!
These stylish Uniqlo crop tops could quickly become your new fave basics:
Cotton Ribbed Crew Neck Cropped T-Shirt (P590)
Staying true to their no-frills approach, Uniqlo's take on the cropped crew neck sports the same timeless silhouette as a classic white tee, but with a hem just about at the level of your belly button. The ribbed texture keeps the laid-back piece looking polished and form-flattering. You can get the top in seven versatile shades including black, white, gray, beige, navy, and more.
Dry-Ex Cropped Sleeveless T-Shirt (P790)
If oversized tees are your thing, this sleeveless cropped top would be right up your alley. Its loose fit keeps you feeling fresh, but the slits around the side and delicate, cotton-like fabric prevent the top from looking awkward or boxy. You can wear it for working out or just to sport a fun, athleisure-inspired look.
Dry-Ex Cropped Crew Neck Short Sleeve T-Shirt (P790)
The wide sleeves on this T-shirt are a common element in many of Uniqlo’s tops and they offer the basic crew neck an added touch of sophistication—you can dress the piece up or down with the right bottoms and accessories. You can get it in basic colors like black and white as well as some more standout shades like pink and purple.
Square Neck Short Sleeve Cropped T-Shirt (P590)
We’re obsessed with the square neckline on this cropped tee, which gives the classic style a more distinct look. It’s fitted, form-flattering build would like great with a variety of pants, skirts, and shorts—don’t worry, the ribbed fabric will help keep awkward bulges at bay. You’ll want to cop it in all seven shades: Black, white, beige, gray, brown, and pink.
