How To Wear Cropped Sweaters (Without Looking Like An Early '90s Throwback)

The 2000s may have earned the nickname the “naughts,” “aughts,” and “uh-ohs,” but the decade did bring with it the long-fit tee–shirts that hide your tummy and the like. Nonetheless, the last few seasons brought the return of the dreaded crop top and now we have cropped everything, from blazers to tees and sweaters. However, there is a way (and a fashionable one at that) to wear a cropped sweater (to the office even) without looking like a throwback to the belly-baring trend of yesteryear.

Here’s how to get a preppy, proper look from something that could otherwise be awful (hint: don’t wear it with low-rise jeans).

Salinas Cardigan

Start with a loose cropped sweater like this knit Quiksilver Salinas Cardigan in coral ($23).

Rolled Sleeve Button Down Shirt

Wear a traditional button up underneath, such as this Loft white rolled sleeve button down shirt ($39).

Wear wide leg, high waist trousers ($29) on the bottom to balance the shrunken sweater.

Juicy Couture Multi Strand Tie Necklace

Finish the look with a long, multi-strand necklace ($136) and heels to elongate the look.
