Trend Alert: The Brami

One of our favorite current trends is the shift we've seen towards comfortable crop tops. Not only that, but today's crop tops are built for all different body types! With body positivity at the forefront of the fashion conversation, it's no longer in-style to make sure that you have abs before you reach for shorter shirts. Along with this trend, we've noticed that waistlines keep climbing with mom jeans and high wasted pants coming back in. If you're loving these trends, stick around to see why the brami has become everyone's go-to cropped top.
