There’s nothing more classic than a button-up cardigan, but like anything else, traditional needs a shake-up once in a while to look fresh. So, how do you make a classic cardigan look modern? You take it up a notch, literally!
Cute cropped cardigans in chunky knits and rich shades are trending this fall. Here’s how to style a cropped cardigan outfit for your casual lifestyle.
1. Pair a Cropped Cardigan with Flares
Here’s a way to add a little bit of a cool factor to a cardigan look. Start with a cropped rib knit cardigan with slouchy drop shoulders and romantic puffy sleeves. Then pair it with 70’s inspired flare jeans. Lug sole booties are “the boot” this fall and go great with this classic meets boho look. Add an animal print bag and cool shades to bring it to life.

2. Team Up A Cropped Cardigan with Cropped Straight Leg Jeans
Worried a cropped sweater will show off a belly bulge. Try teaming up your cropped cardigan with some High waisted Straight leg jeans. Straight-leg jeans have replaced skinnies as the “it” jean style. If they are cropped like this pair, all the better. As long as the jeans have some stretch to them, the high waist will hold you in, sculpt your shape and make you feel more confident wearing a shorter cardigan, like this which is a pocket cardigan.
Shoes can make or break an outfit so keep yours updated. Clogs go well with this look, so if you love that style, go for it. A scarf, pretty earrings, and chic bags help add femininity and balance this menswear look.

3. Try a Chunky Cropped Cardigan with Leather Leggings
Knits and leather are an awesome combination, so why not try a marled crop cardigan with leather leggings? The younger gals may be wearing crop tops, but don’t let that scare you off. Just switch out a crop for a round or V-neck tee and pair it with sleek leather leggings, plus some edgy studded booties, and a rustic suede bag.
