Way before making it’s way to your Instagram feed, it’s the late R&B signer Aaliyah that introduced this look, both sexy and tomboyish. When she died in 2001 at 22 in a plane crash, Aaliyah was at the top of her fame, and left her mark in music and fashion. The signer, nicknamed Baby Girl, paved the way for stars such as Rihanna and Beyonce. Today, we can say the R&B princess invented the crop top!

See her looks, we could all wear them in 2018
