Ignorant Awareness requested a few picks for cropped cardigans and jackets with long or 3/4 sleeves, so here we go:


Old Navy Cropped Rib Knit Cardi -was $15, now $12
With code ONSAVE20

So I’ve thrifted cropped Old Navy cardigans and loved them. I bought this style last year and it is very lightweight so best suited to summer wear, but darling with dresses! Available in black, navy, hot pink, magenta, coral, teal, cornflower, white, heather gray, oatmeal, neon green, and three types of stripes in sizes XS – XXL, including tall and petite sizes for most colors. Size availability varies by color. Also available in plus sizes through 4X in black, teal, and hot pink.


Aryn K. Two Tone Jacket – was $119, now $88.99

Cropped jackets can get boxy, and with swing styles that can be incredibly fun. But Ignorant Awareness was hoping for something with a little more structure and definition, and this little two-tone number has a great shape to it. Sleeves are actually knit, which is great if you have trouble fitting blazer sleeves but gives this jacket a very funky feel. Available in sizes XS – L.


Woolovers Cashmere & Merino Classic Cropped Crew Cardigan – was $50, now $42

Some cropped cardis are SO cropped that they feel almost like shrugs. This style is a bit longer in the body, but still shorter than a typical non-cropped cardigan. And it’s a cashmere blend! Woo! Available in mustard, black, charcoal, pink, navy, pale pink, heather gray, purple, teal, olive, and magenta in sizes S – XL. Size availability and price vary by color.


ASOS Cropped Tailored Blazer – was $78.41, now $37.41

Aaaaand on the longer side of cropped blazers is this basic black model. Definitely a shorter fit, but not to the point that it rides above a mid-rise beltline. Love that sleek, one-button closure. Available in sizes 2 -14. Also available in petite sizes.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for cropped cardigans and jackets with long or 3/4 sleeves:

  1. Boden – Five cropped cardis and two cropped jackets this season!
  2. Piperlime – No idea why, but this vendor has no fewer than 35 cropped jackets in stock right now. Only one cropped cardi, though, and it’s decidedly wintry.
  3. Macy’s – Lots of options for both cardis and jackets.

    Maybe you’ve covered this before, but for which body types are cropped cardigans appropriate? I always see them in the Boden catalogue and think they are so cute, but when I’ve tried them on, they don’t seem to be very flattering to my low waist-to-hip ratio.

      Tara, if you’ve tried them and disliked the look then that’s the real clincher. Although they can be challenging on full busts or figures with decidedly high or low natural waists, I think they’re fairly versatile and the trick is to know what to wear them with. I’ve seen cropped cardigans styled with pants – which works in some cases – but generally think they’re best suited to pairing with high-waisted and full-skirted dresses. If you’re a Glee fan at all, you’ll see Quinn sporting dresses and cropped cardis throughout season 3!
