12 Trendy Ways To Wear A Cropped Sweater 2021
Cropped sweaters are cool and comfortable and can be hugely versatile wardrobe staples. There are many ways they can be worn, according to the sweater, the season and your personal style. If you are looking for new ideas for your favorite version or are thinking about investing in a new one, such as our puff sleeve crew neck sweater or our Love crop, here are a few tips for wearing cropped sweaters with style.
1. Go bold
If you have a fairly delicate-looking cropped sweater, team it with bolder items. For example, you could match your favorite sweater with black combat boots and high-waisted black or blue skinny jeans.
2. Team it up
Match the color of your favorite cropped sweater with tights and a short skirt. Gray sweaters and tights look great with a denim or corduroy skirt, or go for bright and bold colors to really make a statement with your look.
3. Cover up
If you don’t want your midriff on show, wear a T-shirt underneath your sweater. This can instantly transform it to make it more modest for a family lunch or to add a layered effect for a trip to the mall.
4. Layer it up
Cropped sweaters are made for layering. They are staples that can be used in all sorts of looks and in all sorts of weather. Wear them over a summer dress for chillier evenings, or tie one around your waist to add an extra element to a jeans-and-tee combo.
5. Work it out
Wear a black cropped sweater over a crisp white button-down shirt for an instantly elegant and professional look. Switch up your colors for a bolder look, with the options only limited by your imagination. Go for stark contrasts or choose shades of the same color to create a multi-tonal effect.
6. Tuck it in
If your cropped sweater is a little on the longer side, you can tuck it into a high-waisted short skirt for a fun and flirty effect. This can look great when you team different fabrics, such as chunky wool with a floaty little skirt. If you don’t like showing off too much leg, this would also work with longer, flowing skirts.
7. Add some height
Cropped sweaters are often associated with casual looks, but this underestimates their potential. They can also look amazing as part of dressier outfits. Team a bright cropped sweater with matching colored heels for a really striking effect. This would look great with high-waisted pants and a chic blouse to create a look that could see you from a day at the office to an evening in a bar.
8. Tank it
Wearing a tank top underneath your cropped sweater can be a great way of layering it up without it feeling too bulky. You can also play around with complementary or contrasting colors. It can look great if your sweater has a wider neckline and the straps of your tank top or cami peek through.
9. Feminine and flowing
This may not seem like a natural choice, but cropped sweaters can actually look quite lovely when they are worn over flowing tops. It can create a floaty, feminine look, while the cropped cut adds shape where you need it to create a flattering silhouette.
10. Show off toned abs
Show off your midriff in a short-cut cropped sweater teamed with slinky, skinny jeans and a pair of sky-high heels or cute sneakers. Combinations of this can create all sorts of looks to suit almost any occasion. Go all black with a hint of sparkle for a night on the town, or add fun motifs and ripped jeans for a sexy and sassy daytime outfit.
11. Feel relaxed
Combine a slouchy crop sweater with boyfriend jeans to create a look that is as comfortable as it is fashionable. Team light-wash jeans with a bright red or yellow sweater for an effortless look that will still get you noticed. This look also works well with denim shorts in the summer, or you could team with leggings if you feel confident enough to pull off the look.
12. The pants look
A short, cropped sweater with smart tailored pants can create a look that is at once sophisticated and fun. Try a neutral sweater with gray or black tapered pants. The pants with a tie around the waist can really work well with this look. Alternatively, go for lower slung wide-leg pants for a look that is supremely feminine and versatile
