We loved the retro '50s feel of the crop top when it appeared in Rachel Comey's Spring 2011 runway show, and we've since seen it popping up on celebs. Kelly Rowland chose a yellow lace version, while Zoe Kravitz went for a white top and black skirt at a party in New York. We even did a story on how to wear a crop top. That said, it definitely shows some skin. Is it a trend you'll be wearing this Summer?

OnSugar blogger Beauty and the Budget shows us that looking chic poolside needn't cost a fortune. Her Summer-ready swim and coverup choices are so excellent, we had to share.
As the Memorial Day festivities have drawn to a close, you're probably all hyped up about the forthcoming summer! But until you take your big summer vacay, you might be spending most of your weekends lounging poolside. When you're hanging out by the pool with your friends, you're probably going to spend more time working on your tan rather than swimming in the water. A two piece swimsuit (preferably with a strapless bandeau top) is the perfect option to getting the perfect summer tan without too many visible tan lines. Of course, you'll also need a chic coverup, like a kaftan or loose fitting chiffon coverup. So what are the most fashionable pieces for soaking up the sun for under $50? Take a look at the pieces above in B's Swimwear Guide Exclusive! Clockwise from top left: Topshop burnout caftan, $48; Target polka-dot top, $18; Tilly's bikini bottom, $35; The Sak woven bag, $19; Asos coverup, $44; Full Tilt bikini top, $28; Anthropologie bikini bottoms, $50; Wet Seal sandals, $13.
