Calling all fashionista brides! It's time to get serious about wedding dress shopping. Whether you're going classic or channeling one of many It girls to walk down the aisle (Olivia Palermo and Whitney Port, we're looking at you), wedding dress shopping can be as easy as clicking "Add to Cart."

Have you fallen head over heels for the crop top revolution? If you're a bride-to-be and your style is more '90s chic (think the "Freedom" video and countless Melrose Place anti-heroines) than traditionally matrimonial, maybe it's time consider a crop top for your upcoming wedding. While the word crop can scare even the fittest girl into daily planks, the trend's new version is more high waisted skirt (or pants if that's your thing) with over hanging shirt than midriff-baring risqué. Sure, showing a little skin never hurt anyone but even if you fancy yourself more demure, this style could be for you. Either way, wearing separates on your wedding day is a way to show off your unique personal style, and show the world you're up on the latest runway trends. The best part, this look can work for any type of wedding celebration — from a cocktail reception to a formal affair, and definitely an adorable courthouse wedding. Or, choose a traditional dress for the ceremony and opt for the crop for the reception.

Is the jury still out on the crop top for you? Or have you decided to take the plunge (more like the crop!) and unsure of where to look? Not to worry, we've got 8 gorgeous separates sets — some more cropped than others — that can be yours today.
