15 Summer Tops That Aren’t Cropped For The Fuller-Coverage Girlies

Summer weather calls for lightweight and comfortable clothing, but that doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice style. One of the most popular fashion trends in summer fashion is usually the cropped top — but this year, it seems like the trend is beginning to move towards a more refined style — full of long blouses and clean lines. Of course, this shift in fashion shouldn’t come as a surprise, thanks to Gen Z’s love for reviving old trends. In summer 2023, it’s low-rise jeans over high-rise, jorts over regular shorts, and now, longer tops over cropped tops. 

Don’t get me wrong, if you love rocking a crop top in summer, definitely don’t stray away from the look. But if you’re searching for something new to try this year (or if you just straight-up don’t like the idea of wearing a smaller shirt), consider a lengthier top! From flowy blouses to structured button-ups, there are plenty of options to choose from. With these 15 summer tops, say goodbye to the cropped top trend and hello to these stylish alternatives!

Ruffled Camisole

Going for European vacay vibes this season? The Ruffled Camisole by Zara ($40) is the perfect option for you. When you have a basic cami with a touch of ruffled flare like this, you definitely won’t miss your crop top this summer.

Halter top

Just because you’re going for longer tops this season, it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice showing off a little midriff, if that’s your thing. The Zara Linen Blend Halter Top ($46) is perfect if you want to rock the waistcoat trend while still wearing something breezy and comfortable.

Sheer top

Keep the sheer fabric trend alive with Zara’s multicolored Printed Tulle Top ($36).

Tube Top

Djerf Avenue’s Daily Tube Top ($62) comes in so many different fun colors, and it’s the perfect non-cropped staple piece for your summer wardrobe.

Ribbed Knit Tank Top

Take notes from the newest aesthetic — blokette fashion — and snag this Rib-Knit Tank Top by H&M ($15) just in time for summer.

Pleated Top

I’m obsessed with the adorable cut on the Strapless Gabardine Top from Zara ($46). Combine the style with a pair of white linen trousers to achieve the ultimate Sofia Richie Grainge vibes.

Flowy top

If you really want to lengthen your tops of choice this season, go for the Taylor Tube Top by Free People ($68).

Lettuce-edged top

I’ll be honest, I’m not usually a fan of anything lettuce-edged, but the Rendezvous Top by Lioness ($60) paired with the matching skirt is such a classy style for any fancy summer outings you may have this year.

Cotton t-shirt

Looking for new graphic tees that aren’t cropped? I recommend thrifting in order to find your perfect tee, but tops like this Cotton T-shirt from H&M ($13) are super cute options for 2023.

Silk Tank top

Searching for something a little more minimalistic this summer? Try H&M’s Silk-Blend Tank Top ($64) and pair it with a pair of neutral pants for a sleek fit in 2023. 

Cape Knit Top

This long-sleeve Asymmetric Cape Knit Top from Zara ($50) is the perfect option for all of your beachy activities this summer.

Long Tube Top

I’ve found the Keep Your Cool Tube Top by Free People ($68) to be the perfect staple top for summer’s hottest days. It features a lovely, flowy fabric and adorable babydoll silhouette.

Crochet Top

I am in love with all things crochet this summer. If you’ve been looking for the right crochet piece for your summer 2023 wardrobe, the Herseas Crochet Coverup on Amazon ($29) is definitely your go-to. 

Rose Halter Top

Hop on the adorable rosette trend this summer with the Rose Halter Top ($59) by Meshki!

Simple Knit Top

A simple style, such as Reformation’s Bardon Knit Top ($48), may seem like a boring grab, but having a plain, flattering top that’s not cropped will come in handy. Trust me.
