One of the biggest trends at AEO right now? Crop tops. We’re loving the new take on rocker cool, especially because there are so many ways to wear it! Read on for some of our favorite takes on the trend.

Give your look moto-inspired edge with a quilted vegan leather jacket and destroyed boyfriend jeans. Finish things off with buckled booties and layered necklaces.
