Do you struggle with transforming your outfits from day to night? Don’t worry, CF is here to help turn that daily annoyance into a fun challenge. Class to Night Out focuses on one piece per week, and aims to help you take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.

Sweaters kind of get a bad rep in the fashion world. Yes, they're basically only one step up from a sweatshirt when you need to throw on something comfy, but that doesn't mean they can't be flattering and fashion-forward!

Since basically every kind of top imaginable is cropped nowadays, it's no surprise that cropped sweaters have been popping up everywhere lately. If you want to try out this trend, we've got you covered! Check out these two outfits below:

Cropped Sweater: Class

How to style a cropped sweater for day

Sweater, Skirt, Scarf, Tights, Boots, Bag, Bracelets

If you're hesitant about wearing a cropped top to class, I don't blame you! If your school isn't quite as trend-friendly, cropped sweaters look amazing layered over tank tops and collared shirts. Pairing your sweater with something high-waisted also takes some of the edge off.

Try pairing yours with a retro-inspired acid-wash skater skirt and layer super trendy deep green tights underneath. Get extra cozy with a soft leopard print infinity scarf, then grab a pair of black combat boots to add a little edge. A classic black bucket bag and some leather bracelets complete the ensemble.

Sweater, Pants, Booties, Clutch, Necklace, Earrings

Create an edgy nighttime look by pairing your sweater with an on-trend pair of leather look pants. The paneling on this pair is just plain awesome! A pair of gray ankle booties and a layered cross necklace add a little oomph, while crystal drop earrings make this ensemble irresistibly cool. Complete the outfit with a bold pop of color -- this cobalt clutch is the perfect finishing touch!
