Would You Wear… a Cropped Pullover Sweater?

Transitioning between seasons can be awkward. Making your warm weather pieces stretch into cold winter months requires a lot of creativity.  One solution we’re loving is the cropped sweater, which has already proven itself to be a huge trend this year. Although cropped sweaters aren’t the most practical pieces because they’re not that warm, they do make great layering items.

Budget-friendly retailers like H&M and Forever 21 have already jumped on board, so you don’t have to shell out beaucoup bucks for this look. If you’re self-concious about showing some skin (or it’s too cold!), you can always wear a tank top or high-waisted bottoms underneath.

Here is how we would wear one (tank optional)…

Would you wear a cropped pullover sweater?

And if yes, how would you wear it? Would you rock the tank underneath or show some skin a la the looks above? We want to know, so leave a comment! If you’re not a fan, why not? Is this a trend that is here to stay, or just a passing fad?

    I have one similar to the middle picture, and I wear it over a dress with tights and boots. I like it because I can still wear my dresses over the fall season, and hopefully winter, too!

    I’m too tall for this trend! things that are meant to crop at the waist usually hit me mid-ribs. However, I do like how it looks.

    i’d wear this sweater over a checked shirt, add skinny jeans and black motor boots :) and cozy shawl.

    I love this trend and I think some people are so good at pulling it off! Me, myself won’t be gravitating towards it because at my current weight I’d be too embarrassed to wear it!

    These are great if you want to draw attention to your waist/ stomach (eg- if you’re an hourglass/ pear shape) :)

    I dunno, these are kind of annoying, like crop tops. They just aren’t polished enough. I don’t like clothes that make me look like I don’t know how to do laundry.

    They are perfect over dresses – especially ones that come in at the waist – then your entire wardrobe works year round!

    I love this look! Especially when worn with black skinnies and combat boots, showing that little bit of skin works so well with a still-warm Autumn. (Or still-cool Spring, in my case)

    Yes I would. I’d wear them on top of a dress.

    I got a few of these last year! They’re so perfect and I’m still obsessed with them. Comfy while still being really cute and so diverse! And I definitely think taller girls can rock them.

    I actually own quite a few cropped pullover sweaters so yes, yes I would wear one. I’m glad I own something on style! I usually wear mine with a skirt or shorts, tights and lace up boots! Great post! ;)

    I had a small obsession with these this winter in the southern hemisphere! I wore them over a dress with leggings, then a jacket over the top for when I was walking through campus. It was a great way to layer without feeling too bulky!

    I’m not sure I like the outfit CF picked out to style, but I really like this trend overall! I like the second picture the best – high-waisted anything looks awesome :)

    I love this trend! I have several of these that I wear with high waisted everything and over dresses.

    I would only wear a cropped top with high waist jeans.

    I’ve actually worn the cropped sweater with yoga pants on a bummy day for class. Then I wore the same cropped sweater with skinny jeans and TOMS. I’ve worn another one with skinny jeans with a tank under but also without one.
