This look may look slightly familiar as I wore a version of it in this post. Also provided a little preview Monday when I talked about my most recent leap {if you haven’t check it out yet, ya should!}. Well, this look has truly been worn almost every week. Some combination of this sweater and these mom jeans. I cannot get enough of either of them. Mainly because they pair together perfectly. A crop sweater + mom jeans is a match made in fashion heaven.

How to style a crop sweater? 

Option one: Okay, obviously my biggest tip for styling a crop sweater is pairing it with mom jeans. By mom jeans, I mean high waisted jeans. They don’t necessarily have to be mom jeans. Although, y’all know I’m going to say, they should be. Since they’re my favorite ever. Okay, I’m shutting up about them. 

Option two: Aside from high waisted denim, a high waisted skirt is another option. Right now with the temps starting to rise a great high waisted mini would be an option. Go for skirts that have more shape and body to them. Fitted skirts will look a little aggressive when paired with a cropped sweater. 

Option three: Wear the sweater over a dress. This is something I have done all winter long. I LOVE the look of a chunky sweater thrown over a dress. Many times people don’t even realize it’s a dress. This can work with mini dresses, midis, and maxis. Just make sure the dress tucks in a bit at the waist or the sweater you pair it with nips the dress in at your waist. This makes sure you don’t get swallowed up by all of the fabric.
