Perfect for layering over long tees or dresses, cropped jackets are a timeless design that fit into nearly any style. The scaled-down jackets are cut at the waist or higher and are often made from sturdy fabrics such as tweed, denim, or twill for a structured look. The secret to rocking a cropped jacket? Proportion. Pair a cropped jacket with longer tops for balance, and look for one that will hit you right at the waist or top of the hip bone.
