Cropped Sweaters & Short Skirts

If you are getting tired of the usual sweater look, why not change it up with a cropped sweater? Cropped sweaters are versatile and can easily be styled with anything. They tend to fit wide and boxy so I like pairing them with something that is a little more fitted. This will balance out the outfit. I like to pair them over a cute skirt, dress,or high-waisted jeans.

A great outfit idea that never goes out of style is a cropped sweater, mini skirt, and over-the-knee boots. I love this simple and effortless look. It’s such a cute and girly outfit. The outfit I put together consists of my cropped grey sweater from Urban Outfitters, skirt from Forever 21, and over-the-knee boots from Marc Fischer. I love all of these neutral colors combined together.

I got this mini skirt from Forever 21 years ago and I still love it. Since it has a cute black and white pattern, I like pairing it with a solid color top. Black and white pairs well with every color so you can wear any color top with this skirt. This skirt is high-waisted so a cropped sweater would work perfectly. And you don’t have to worry about tucking it in. A shirt and long cardigan would also look super cute too. In the summer, you can also pair this with a cropped top. I wanted to stick with neutral colors so I paired it with my grey cropped top sweater from Urban Outfitters, which is so soft and comfy!

If you’ve been following my blog and Instagram, you know I’m obsessed with my black Ramata Marc Fischer over-the-knee boots. I wear them with everything. They are so comfortable and I thought they were perfect with this outfit. These boots come in three colors: berry, black, and grey. I also linked some cute cropped sweaters and fun pattern skirts below.

I hope everyone has a great week!

  1. Great combination and you look fabulous. I do have a question for you though. How should a plus size girl wear or style a cropped sweater? Especially if you have the excess in your stomach area? I tend to noy wear them as they make me look pregnant but I may be styling them wrong. Any tips you have would be great.

    1. Thank you so much! And no matter what size people are, they should be able to wear anything they want. Just have confidence and you can pull off anything you want! The size of your belly doesn’t mean a cropped sweater is out of the question. I would try pairing them with a high waisted bottom. This can be either a skirt (mini, midi, or maxi) or high-waisted pants. Whatever you are most comfortable in. If your cropped sweater is loose, I would pair it with a more fitted bottom. If the cropped sweater is more tight, it would look great with a flowy skirt.

    1. Thanks! And it has been super cold! But it’s all about the layering. You can wear stockings or leggings and high socks with the over-the-knee boots. That will help keep you a little warmer!

  2. Oh my!!! 😍😍 I am in love with that skirt! This is so me right now! I have become slightly obsessed with ordering highwasted skirts and jumpers πŸ™ˆ

  3. I love this look so much and never know how to wear this boxy cropped sweaters, so thank you for this (need to up my fashion game over here, ha!). Those over-the-knee boots are adorable!!

  4. Love this!! I have a difficult time putting together outfits. I’m usually a leggings and sweats kind of girl #activewear4life. But, I’m working on upping my fashion game. Thank you for the inspiration!
