Pick Of The Crop


It's quite strange how brands are trying to carry the cropped mania from spring and summer into fall and winter. So cropped sweaters are a huge thing now, a way to say with your clothes "I'm chilly enough for a cozy knit but my abdomen could use a nice breeze." It's a confused garment similar to boots with cutouts or peep toes and sleeveless coats. However, this is one trend I quite enjoy as a petite lady. Average sized crop tops hit me right at the smallest point of my waist, which is also where most of my skirts start or my dresses flare. So cropped sweaters work much better on my body than normal sized ones; these are a breeze to tuck in or layer on top of dresses. I've already thrown this one on numerous times while I've been in Northern Ireland and in need of an extra layer and I'm certain it will be a favorite this winter even when I'm not living out of a suitcase. I definitely need to buy a few more of these sweaters before this trend ends and I'm back to shopping from the children's section (which often leads to cropped sleeves as well as a cropped torso...).

I love cropped tops even though I'm relatively tall because they pair so perfectly with high waisted skirts! this outfit is lovely, and I especially love the boots!

I love the cropped sweater trend for the exact same reason. They just hit at a much more flattering place on my torso. I may have to pick up a few more before the trend ends too. This one you're wearing here is so cute and cozy-looking.

You make a good point! I've just always imagined them to be boxy and billowy as well but there's no reason for that to be true. I'm going to try this!

Yeah those can make our legs appear longer, right? Hopefully for me...! Ahah. xx

I've noticed too that the cropped sweaters looks so much better with my body type (and with high-wasted skirts). When I see your short hair I want to cut mine too. It looks so good!

It's great that the cropped sweaters proportions work well on you! 'cause the idea of a actual cropped sweater's kind of weird :p

The cropped sweater looks really natural on you. I've tried several on and, as a petite lady with a large chest, I am kind of over the trend because they tend to hike up Way too high on me.

I have the body of a gibbon, so pretty much any sweater fits me like that anyway….heh. I have this sweater saved to my favourites- I love the interesting geometric pattern of the knitting. my arms are probably twice as long as yours, so it's actually really helpful to see it on you- now I know it'll probably be too small on me. ha.
