Fashion Top Five: Swingy Cropped Jackets
July 2, 2008
More structure than a cardigan, less confining than a blazer, these short jackets are an easy way to top slim silhouettes in over-air-conditioned environments, or add shape and tailoring to an otherwise breezy summer work outfit.
Tommy Hilfiger’s Cropped Jacket with Rounded Collar ($89.50) is an easy outfit addition in versatile khaki.
A rounded hemline, wide collar, and puffed shoulders make this Cropped Swing Jacket ($210) fun and feminine.
While it's not quite a neutral, the vibrant green on this Swing Coat ($89) from Jones New York will match just about any subdued color.
A patterned layer like this Maestro Swing Jacket ($88) can make plain jeans and a solid tee really pop.
This Pincord Jacket ($139) would look great worn open over slim trousers and a long tank or as pictured, buttoned up with a full skirt.
