Crop top dresses are a combination of a top and a skirt that are separated from each other so that the belly area remains exposed. This trend has emerged today according to the principle “new is well forgotten old”.

Crop wedding dresses have recently gained more and more attention from modern brides because this style looks at the same time simple, original, and sexy. Modern bridal designers such as Justin Alexander have a myriad of options, ranging from a fluffy skirt and lace top to a skirt that hugs the lower body and a relatively practical top. The second name of this dress is “two-piece”, although this is often an incorrect statement, since a dress, for example, with a bolero or other light cape, falls under this definition.

Choice of style

To add sexuality to the image of the bride, you can sew a skirt with a high waist. This cut will suit almost any shape.

 If the bride is not thin, then when choosing a top, you need to focus on a looser cut, in which the waist will practically be covered. The bride’s wedding dress should cover her body. If the top has a large neckline, then the belly should be covered and vice versa. The navel must be closed, otherwise, the bride will look vulgar.

 If the wedding and the bridal outfit are retro-oriented, the top should be cropped. This look must be complemented with retro accessories and the same hairstyle.

A crop top looks good on slightly tanned skin. A separate wedding dress will look very original if the girl has a thin waist and perfect posture. The bride is free to choose any color scheme for her outfit: from pastel and pale pink tones to contrasting shades, which will allow bringing more individuality into the image, to embody the ideas of the girl herself. The model of a two-piece wedding dress will make any bride feel like a model and queen of the most important event in her life.

Choice of fabric

Crop-top can be created from different fabrics and combinations. You can make a top and a skirt from the same or different materials. Combine them with a single piece that will harmoniously fit into the image.

For sewing the outfit, fabrics are used that can convey the beauty and richness of this style:

  • light silk and smooth satin;
  • brocade, which conveys an aristocratic image and perfectly keeps its shape;
  • airy lace and ornate patterns;
  • chiffon and tulle are flowing materials that will add lightness and airiness to the image.

You can complement the outfit with decorative elements of a three-dimensional look. Add iridescent crystals, rhinestones. Use embroidery and inserts made of gold, lace.

Wedding format

  For a traditional celebration, it is better to give preference to a modest top and a long skirt (fluffy or tight-fitting), but if the wedding takes place in nature, then it is quite possible to choose an open top with thin straps and a flying skirt.

Pay attention to the peculiarities of the figure

The general rules for the selection of a wedding dress work here, for example, if you have curvy hips – hide them under a straight or fluffy skirt, if you have small breasts – give preference to a closed bodice with delicate lace or voluminous elements.


Harmonious additions to the Crop-top wedding dress will be:

  • laconic, discreet accessories – a necklace or necklace, earrings, bracelet
  • a light wreath, tiara, or headband instead of a fluffy veil – so as not to overload the image;
  • neat clutch;
  • comfortable shoes or sandals that match the skirt;
  • wedding bouquet of delicate flowers;
  • makeup and hairstyle that highlights the beauty of the bride and matches the chosen style.

Remember the weather

For a wedding in warm spring or hot summer, a combination of a short top with a fluffy, airy skirt or, conversely, a flared skirt with laconic pleats will be ideal. But be sure to try playing with shades: a light top with an azure blue or ash pink skirt looks more than romantic!

An ultra-short crop top with a long tiered skirt is of course best suited for an oceanfront wedding ceremony. Therefore, if the weather is rainy and cool on your wedding day, you will hardly be comfortable in such an open outfit. In this case, a sheer or lace crop top can be worn over a wedding dress. And also complement it with a jacket or cardigan – the image will be no less harmonious and successful!

A couple of tips

So that a separate wedding dress does not shock the guests, mainly of the older generation, when buying an outfit, you should be guided by the following points:

The biggest drawback of a wedding dress with a crop top is that it is only suitable for girls who go in for sports and have an ideal figure. And, if so, then a unique, sophisticated, and feminine image will be provided.
