How To Style: The Cropped Jacket

The cropped jacket is the perfect pal for outfits when longer jackets simply don’t cut it. They not only add a sassy feel to your look, but it also accentuates your waist and brings great layers in the form of length-play. There are many ways to rock your crop, but we adore the way these street style gurus wore them and will share our favourite tips too!

High Definition: An embroidered cropped jacket can bring any casual outfit to life. Style it with your favourite denim pants or skinnies and a long T-shirt or collared shirt. Add a great tote or structured bag with kitten heels to match.


Trenchin’: OMG, a double-breasted, trench  crop? This is just what dreams are made of. If you can pull this off, pair it with a tailored pair of slacks or a tight-fitted, high-waisted midi skirt in an on-trend berry tone. Accessorise with a great pair of 70s inspired eyewear and strappy heels.


Leathers: Probably the coolest of the crops. The cropped leather jacket is a piece you should own, because you will wear a good quality jacket like this for years. It looks great with literally any ensemble; maxi dresses, slip dresses, flared pants and skinnies – the list goes on. We love it paired with this wide-legged jumpsuit with black heels and a statement bag.


Denim: A full – character denim jacket always adds an alternative punch to any outfit. In its cropped state, the denim crop – like the leather crop, goes with almost anything! Wear it with a pleated skirt or fitted dress as pictured below. Pair it with your favourite sliders and a classic pair of sunglasses.

Blazing: The problem the crop solves, is that it is a solution to a style problem when some jackets are just too long to pull a look together. Style your cropped blazer with a buttoned shirt or a lightly textured jersey. It looks great with denim shorts and booties, or with a ripped skinny and thigh-high boots.  Keep the look casual with a shoulder or  bucket bag.
