This fall, we are seeing cropped everything, including shirts, sweaters, jackets and blazers. Some silhouettes are so cropped that they show a bare midriff, which may look great on our twenty-something aged daughters, but not on most of us BA50’s. We can, however, rock many crop styles that are just a bit longer. The trick is to pair them with a pair of high waisted denim or slacks to keep everything covered. Cropped tops and jackets look hip and will add some edge to all your fall outfits, so give them a try!
To bring your look up a notch further, pair your trendy crop jackets and tops with a colorful scarf. This season I am particularly loving small square bandana styles, sometimes called neckerchiefs, which look fresh artfully tied at the neck and don’t require any fussing to get them to lay just right. They look equally as chic as a handbag or hair accessory for a quick injection of color. Read on for lots of outfit inspiration with stylish crop tops and jackets along with coordinating scarves.
