Just when we thought the matching-skirt-and crop-top look has overstayed its welcome, we see a different take on this trend storming the red carpet. This time, however, we’re seeing a lot of celebrities don long, full skirts with matching cropped tops.

What do you think of this trend? Is it something you still want to see on the red carpet? Before you decide, check out these celebrities who wore the trend this year:

1. Bella Thorne

The 17-year-old graced the Elle Women in Music Celebration a few days ago wearing a Donna Karan street art-print pleated cotton skirt and matching Donna Karan crisscross bra top. She added a pop of color with her Nicholas Kirkwood “Hutton” multi-strap suede sandals and proceeded to cap off her look with her Edie Parker clutch, Versace Leda stainless steel and black mother-of-pearl dial watch and Cartier “Panthere” necklace.

2. Kendall Jenner

The 19-year-old model courted both the “Best Dressed” and the “Worst Dressed” list with this Alaia summer 2015 skirt and top combo that she punctuated with a pair of Alaia studded laser-cut suede sandals and styled with a messy updo and bright red lips.

3. Joan Smalls

The Puerto Rican model also went to Cannes in the same day as Kendall wearing an Alaia summer 2015 pairing. Unlike the younger model though, Joan went for an all-white ensemble.

4. Vanessa Hudgens

The singer/actress stunned in a floral alice + olivia “June” strapless bustier and matching alice + olivia “Kamal” ball gown skirt. She toughened the look up by layering the Elliott Label motorcycle jacket over it.

5. Amanda Clapham

We are not too sure about this look. The bra top looked like it could double as a sports bra. The skirt looks a tad boring. Definitely not the best matching top and skirt look.
