Fashionista NOW: Short & Sweet Outerwear Trend ~ The Cropped Jacket

There’s a way to transforming your wardrobe that doesn’t involve turning it into something completely different altogether and you’re about to find out.

And… This involves a topping of your natural wardrobe with something that is short and sweet: Cropped jacket (or cardigan or blazer, well you get the idea)

If you’ve grown tired of full length coats, hip-length cardigans, denim jackets, and basically every other outerwear that completely cloaks the blouse or top that you’re wearing, you will find the cropped jacket a fun alternative that lets the inner layer of your wardrobe sneak a peek out.

This peeking out is obviously made possible as these jackets are cropped at the natural waist or higher.

The sleeves of some of these cropped toppers may come at about 3/4 length making it the perfect staple for those layered looks that you love.

The season’s variety of cropped outerwear come in a multitude of choices; from scene-stealing brocades, bright solid colors to the more subdued monochromatic palette.

They may come collarless or with some neckline drama. According to, this season’s short jacket leans toward the ones without collar which can be girly or edgy depending on its design.

Whatever it is, the cropped jackets of 2012 promise an instant wardrobe update.

In case you’re wondering how cropped outerwear can and will do just that, take a look at these style-conscious lookbookers for fashion tips in a jiffy.
