Lily Aldridge's Guide to Wearing Crop Tops In Your Everyday Life

While some of us are a few months of Pilates classes away from wearing a crop top, Lily Aldridge has been exercising her right to bare midriff on a daily basis. The Sports Illustrated cover star is on an ab parade, and we rounded up her official crop top photo diary.

Starting on Tuesday, the supermodel selected a coordinating Thakoon ensemble featuring a sleeveless top and hip-high (!) slit (giving a peek at some lacy bloomers underneath) for the 50 Years of Swim Party in N.Y.C. Continuing to show off stomach and stems, Aldridge spent an SI press day Wednesday in a gray patterned shirt and a pair of black short shorts, both by Giambattista Valli. (We could actually see this top with a pair of jeans and wedges this summer!).

Wednesday night she went all out in a red Calvin Klein Collection ensemble — which has PEOPLE readers divided — at the Club SI party in Miami. And Thursday she wore the tiniest top of all with a matching satin pencil skirt at the Sports Illustrated South Beach Soirée in Miami.

Yes, it helps that she has a personal spray tanner on speed dial, and yes, Aldridge is genetically blessed, but we also give her credit for having some serious crop top stamina. Plus, she’s not the only one — Chrissy Teigen skipped right over crop top to straight up bra! What do you think of her belly-baring style? Would you wear any of the looks? Share your thoughts below!

I really dislike crop tops. The only ones i can maybe tolerate are the longer ones that show just a bit of skin, they fit better and can be flattering on more regular body types, not just the skinny model/zero belly fat type.
And the way some girls are wearing them it looks more like a sports bra than a top…what’s next, bikini tops as outerwear??
