How to wear a cropped jacket

Less formal and heavy than a full-waisted jacket, the cropped jacket can be both cute and sophisticated. It is stylish and versatile enough to go day to night with your busy life. When you want a cover-up, a little extra warmth or a little more fashion on top, learn how to wear a cropped jacket.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Wear your cropped jacket professionally. Swap your regular business jacket for a matching cropped jacket. A smart button-up shirt or blouse, and business slacks or skirt, completes the ensemble. Be sure that your cropped jacket is business appropriate, and not too casual. This means no denim and similar fabric and/or colouring to your trousers or skirt.

  2. 2

    Wear your cropped jacket in warm weather. Think short sleeves and your favourite bright colours and patterns. When paired with shorts, a cropped jacket is a fashionable accent piece. Remove it when you get too hot, or add it to your day wear to transition to a warm summer night.

  3. 3

    Wear your cropped jacket in cold weather. Layer a cropped jacket over your favourite sweaters and T-shirt to help them transition from fall to winter. Add a scarf, and wear your cropped jacket with jeans for a day on the town or a casual evening.

  4. 4

    Wear your cropped jacket as evening wear. Go formal with suedes, velvets and other glamorous fabrics. A long-sleeved or short-sleeved cropped jacket of matching colour and classy fabric can top a dress or formal wear. Think short, cap sleeves or sheer fabrics for a fresh take.
