5 Cool ways to wear a cropped sweater

I’ve always been someone that loves an oversized sweater. Long and baggy teamed with my favourite leggings. But recently I’ve seen some international style icons wear a cropped sweater (or short jersey) in the coolest ways. A short jersey looks great with another hot trend, high-waisted pants. And who knew that one could team a dress with a sweater so elegantly? So, after a bit of resistance, I decided to give this winter version of a cropped top a try. In this post, we style the Good Squetter (available in various colours) five ways.

1. SHORT SWEATER WITH HIGH-WAISTED CROPPED PANTS

I like the way the short jersey and these cropped pants complement each other. The JMVB high-waisted pants ensure that the midriff is covered but, because of the top ends on the waistband, one can see the beautiful shape of the pants. A shorter top also helps give the illusion of longer legs – something we all want!

Cropped pants are always perfect to show off beautiful boots like these locally made House of Cinnamon ankle boots. On cooler days there’s nothing like a trench coat to add warmth and finish off an outfit. This one by Pretoria brand Erre has stunning volume sleeves and shoulder epaulettes.

2. SHORT JERSEY WITH HIGH-WAISTED JEANS

JMVB brought out two stunning pairs of stretchy jeans this season, the Wide-leg Jeans and Straight-leg Jeans both look great with a cropped sweater. In this outfit, we add pink python print leather slingbacks and a pretty silk scarf that one can tie around your neck or to the strap of your handbag. I love how the dark blue and pink scarf ties in with the jeans and top.

3. SHORT SWEATER WITH A MAXI DRESS

I had never tried wearing a long dress with a jersey but what a great way to make your wardrobe all-season? A long jersey over a dress may result in too much volume (especially if your dress is wide) but a cropped knit top over a dress preserves the shape of the dress.

The latest dresses from Good Clothing are made from printed Rayon fabric with artist Kirsten Sims’ artwork. They are available in short and long versions and are simply stunning.

4. SHORT JERSEY OVER A JUMPSUIT

If you love the look above but are more of a pants than a dress girl, try a similar look with a Good Clothing Jumpsuit made from the same Kirsten Sims fabric. We changed up the earrings and the bag for a slightly more casual look.

5. SHORT JERSEY WITH A SKIRT

And last but not least, what’s prettier than a gorgeous all-season skirt with a cropped jersey and some cute pumps? This outfit is feminine, classic and versatile. With the tank top underneath you can simply remove the jersey when it gets warm and tie it around your shoulders. The luxury ostrich leather bag by Lodewijk is timeless and matches the curved-hem skirt by Smudj beautifully.
