"You can’t shop anywhere these days and not come across a  top that’s showing some midriff. Crop-tops are here to stay and I’m all for it. I tend to opt for the ones that are a little loose fitting and only show a modest amount of skin. Crop-tops are of the moment and you can basically find them anywhere but Nasty Gal has a few I love." –– Chloe Williams, Public Relations

"When it comes to tops I like to keep it on the down low, as in low-necklines, of course. Since I have a fuller bust I try to stay away from high-necklines as they tend to make me look even more top heavy. A nice V-neck or scoop-neck top helps elongate my décolletage which is definitely a lot more flattering." --Reneise Francis, Market Editor

Crepe wrap top, Roland Mouret, $198,

“This Cynthia Vincent top is great with shorts or even as a coverup at the beach. I love that it shows off my arms and the ruffles at the bottom add a little extra flair to my hip area." --Deena Campbell, Hair & Beauty Editor

Pattern tank, Cynthia Vincent, $258,

"My favorite top right now is the the white tee. You can never go wrong with a light-weight white tee in the summer, it goes with everything and the V-neck elongates my neckline." ––Allyson Brown, Creative Director of Marketing

V-neck T-shirt, GAP, $17,
