A recent trend we have been seeing all over the 2014 runways are cropped jackets. Cropped jackets typically hit your mid-waist, giving you a flattering tailored look. The cropped length of the jacket gives it structure and can hide your undesirable areas. Most jackets are ¾ sleeves so they are less constricting than a normal jacket and more appropriate for the warmer months. Cropped jackets can be worn in a variety of different ways and styles. Working a cropped jacket into your summer wardrobe can be difficult, but here are a few of our favorites that we hope inspire you!
Floral print is always a great pattern choice for summer. The style of this beautiful floral print jacket is so versatile, you can pair this casual Gentle Fawn jacket with white skinny jeans or a maxi dress for the perfect summer go-to outfit. Wear it to a backyard barbeque or a casual evening with friends. It has a wide color palate, making it the perfect accessory for practically any item you may have in your closet.
Add some spunk to your outfit with this jacket from Line and Dot. We love this paired with a bright colored maxi skirt or denim cut-offs and converse for an edgy look. You can also dress it up for the office with a pencil skirt and some killer heels.
For a classic chic look, check out the Elliatt Geo Check Bomber. Perfect for a night out on the town paired with a leather mini skirt or a sexy LBD. This jacket is also perfect for a cozy night by the campfire, the fabric is breathable and soft.
