The fashion term “crop top” evokes images of an early Britney Spears circa 1999 prancing around a beach. Well, Britney is having a comeback—and just as Britney has morphed into a fabulous circus ringleader, the cheesy crop top has matured into couture. But to be less bubblegum and more champagne and caviar, focus in on cropped outwear.
This Fashionista is channeling the cropped trend of designers like Louis Vuitton by cozying up to the new year in this black knit cardigan with oversized buttons and cropped sleeves.
Cropped coats, jackets, and sweaters give you Fashionistas a chance to show off your skirt or dress but still prevent that winter chill from creeping in this January. Three-quarter sleeves and shortened lengths look great in buttery-soft fabrics like this faux-fur coat, this ivory super-cropped coat, or this plush black overcoat.
