*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

QuahogHedgehog requested a few picks for cropped or short cardigans, so here we go:


woolovers cardi

Woolovers Cropped Cardigan – was $54, now $40

If you ask me, this cardigan is somewhere between “short” and “cropped,” but it’s likely to fall at high hip or above on most frames. It’s a cashmere/merino blend that’s machine washable (on the delicate cycle) and will fit through a 46″ bust. Available in this heather orange as well as 14 other colors including red, black, navy, yellow, purple, pink, and green in sizes S – XXL. (Check size charts – Woolovers is one of the few brands that measures and posts individual garment stats.) This similar style is available in 1X – 4X.

boden cropped cardigan

Boden Favourite Cropped Cardigan – was $58, now $34

With 3/4-length sleeves and a true cropped length, Boden’s cardi has a fabulous retro feel to it. The item description says this style is fitted, but it looks a bit boxy to me and reviewers recommend sizing up if you’d like to wear the sweater buttoned. Available in this blush as well as aqua, camel, yellow, lavender, steel gray, and 9 other colors in sizes 2 – 18.  Size availability varies by color. This similar style is available in 1X – 4X.


Land’s End Dress Cardigan – was $49, now $39.20
with code TWO20 and pin 2020 (Progressive sale – check site for more codes)

As its name indicates, this cardigan is designed at a length that pairs beautifully with dresses – a bit shorter than average, though not truly cropped. And it’s made from supima cotton, so it’ll wash and wear beautifully. Available in this pink as well as aqua, navy, black, white, or coral in sizes XS – XL, as well as petite, plus, and tall sizes. Size availability varies by color.

loft cropped cardi

Loft Cropped Cardigan – was $49.50, now $34.65
Discount taken in cart

If you prefer more of a shrug look, this button-free cropped cardigan will fit the bill. A machine-washable viscose/nylon blend, and most reviewers loved it, though a few mentioned boxy fit. Available in this black as well as clay, periwinkle, or white in sizes XXS – XXL. Also available in petite sizes. Size availability varies by color. This similar style is available in sizes 14 – 28.

    I have the Dream of the Crop cardigan from Modcloth and I adore it. Modcloth has sales pretty often, too.
