The search for the perfect autumn layer ends here! Say hello to the cropped jumper. Giving everyday knitwear a fashion-forward update, cropped jumpers have us falling head over (cropped) hemline.
How To Wear A Cropped Jumper
Cosy and cute, cropped jumpers are a fuss-free way to refresh your wardrobe for autumn and winter. Whether you’re layering up for scenic walks, dressing for dinner with the girls or getting snug with candles and cushions, this wear-with-everything piece will see you through your cold-weather social calendar in style.
1. Layer Your Look
Dressing in autumn and winter is all about layering. Luckily, cropped jumpers make the ideal layer thanks to their unique shape and above the waist cut.
To layer your cropped jumper, slip a longline top or a streamlined shirt underneath. Want to bring a retro twist to the trend? Choose a slogan crop top instead. You can also make the most of summer dresses year-round by layering them with a cropped knitted jumper or a cardigan. Easy!
2. Style Cropped Jumpers With Jeans
Jeans and a jumper is one of our favourite cold-weather combos. No matter our plans, knitwear and denim just feels right! For a new season update on this classic duo, switch your go-to knit for a cropped jumper.
For maximum style points, pick jeans that cinch at the waist, like mom jeans and high waisted jeans. Creating a 90s vibe, high waisted denim will balance the cropped hem of your jumper perfectly.
3. Play Around With Different Hemlines
Jeans aren’t the only way to style cropped knits. Hit refresh on cold-weather dressing by teaming your cropped jumper with midi dresses and maxi dresses. Adding an on-trend twist to your outfit, contrasting hemlines are a sure way to make a statement.
4. Keep It Casual With Cropped Hoodies
If your dream autumn and winter plans consist of cuddling up with boxsets and treats (we don’t blame you!), you’re going to need comfy combos made for snug sofa sessions. The good news is a cropped hoodie is a chic and stylish way to master new season loungewear.
Team a cropped hoodie with textured joggers and slippers to tick off the living room dress code. You can also pick pastel cropped sweatshirts, velour fabrics and matching co-ord sets for an extra dose of cosiness. Whether you’re relaxing with friends and family or enjoying a little me-time, this look is a total mood.
5. Refresh Your Knitwear For Work
Hybrid working part of your new normal? You’ll need clothes that can transition from home office to work desk with ease. Fortunately, with a little creativity (and the right cropped knit!), flexible workwear can go from feeling like a struggle to being oh-so-simple!
To stay comfy while WFH, wear your cropped jumper with drawstring joggers or stretchy wide leg trousers. If you’re heading into the office, style the same jumper with tailored trousers and ballet shoes in neutral shades like stone, khaki and black. For meetings and video calls, layer your jumper over collared shirts and blouses.
6. Mix Things Up With A Cropped Cardigan
If you’re Team Cardi over Team Jumper, make the trend your own by swapping your jumper for a cropped cardigan. Whether you pick matching top and cardigan sets, chunky knit designs or timeless cropped black knits, we have plenty of style inspiration at George to make you top of the crops.
For an effortless everyday look, pair your cardi with straight jeans, trainers and a padded coat. For a retro update that will get you set for stylish autumn walks, add a mini rucksack, a cute scrunchie and a coffee cup (reusable, of course!).
