I’m tall, which means that cropped tops often make me look like I outgrew my clothes. But this season’s cropped jackets finally have a proportion that I can’t seem to live without. I recently nabbed two on clearance at Old Navy as a test (don’t hate me, they’re not available online anymore) and now I find myself reaching for them all the time. Last minute drinks with friends? Khaki cropped jacket #1 over jeans and a brown t-shirt is an easy choice. Dinner with the boy after work? Khaki cropped jacket #2 over a chic halter dress slides effortlessly from the office to the restaurant. Want a khaki cropped of your own? We love this funnel neck version from Vince – on sale for $118.
See where I’m going with this? The cropped jacket is a new staple… just like the belted trench. And there’s a style for everyone and every occasion! Wear yours into fall with a chunky knit scarf and your favorite pair of jeans.
