Can you still wear short cardigans? The old fashioned short open cardigans are out, but cropped cardigans worn buttoned up and as a pullover sweater are great. Here are 4 cute cropped cardigan outfits you can copy!
Shorter cardigans are coming back, after years of long cardigans being in! The GenZers are wearing them open sometimes, with bra tops underneath, but wearing them closed as a pullover top is more age appropriate for me.
That’s my favorite way to wear them, and if you’ve been seeing them around and trying to figure out how to wear them too, here are some easy ways to wear them in an outfit.
I’ve been getting a lot of requests for more warm weather outfits, but any of these would work with a coat over the top, or warmer shoes, if you live somewhere were it’s super cold!
How to Wear a Cardigan as a Top
Wear your cropped cardigan with skinny jeans
No, skinny jeans aren’t out! They’re a great option to wear with a short cardigan. Try them with flats or ankle boots or sneakers with your skinny jeans and add a little half tuck.
Wear your cropped cardigan with wide leg pants
I wear cropped wide leg pants year round, and you can absolutely wear them with ankle boots during the winter if you live somewhere cold. They’re great with a cropped cardigan!
I planned to do a half tuck with these pants, but because of the boxy fit of the cardigan and the high waisted pants, a full tuck helped define my waist better. You do what works best for your cardigan and pants!
Wear your cropped cardigan with mom jeans
You can absolutely wear these cropped, boxy cardigans with a looser pair of mom jeans or boyfriend jeans. A half tuck helps keep the look from feeling too boxy, and defines your waist!
Wear your cropped cardigan tucked into a skirt
You can absolutely wear a cropped cardigan with a skirt! Try it with a pleated skirt or a pencil skirt…I’d recommend tucking to define your waist if you’re pairing it with a flowy skirt.
