The Do's and Don'ts of Wearing a Cropped Jacket

Not sure about a cropped jacket? We have the do’s and don’ts on how to wear a cropped jacket with confidence… like this go-to denim cropped jacket:

Denim Cropped Jacket


  1. Do Pair with High-Waisted Bottoms – This creates a balanced silhouette by defining the waist and showing off the slimmest part of your midsection. It also elongates the legs and creates a flattering overall look.
  2. Do Experiment with Layering - Cropped jackets can be great layering pieces. Try layering them over a longer blouse, shirt, or dress to add dimension and visual interest to your outfit.
  3. Do Accessorize Thoughtfully: Enhance your cropped jacket ensemble with carefully chosen accessories. Opt for accessories that complement the overall look while not overwhelming the cropped jacket itself.


  1. Don't Wear with Oversized Tops: Avoid pairing your cropped jacket with oversized tops or loose-fitting blouses. This combination can create an unflattering silhouette and make you appear boxy or disproportionate. Instead, opt for tops that are more fitted or that can be easily tucked into your high-waisted bottoms.
  2. Don't Choose a Length That Hits at the Widest Part of Your Hips: When selecting a cropped jacket, avoid styles that end right at the widest part of your hips. This can draw attention to that area and potentially make you look wider. Aim for a length that hits at a more flattering point, such as just above or below the waistline.
  3. Don't Forget Proportions: Consider your body proportions when choosing a cropped jacket. If you have a shorter torso, opt for shorter cropped jackets that create the illusion of a longer upper body. If you have a longer torso, choose jackets that end closer to your natural waistline to maintain balance. Finding the right proportion is key to a flattering and well-balanced look.

The most important DO: Experiment, have fun, and embrace your individuality when wearing a cropped jacket. With the right styling, it can become a go-to piece in your wardrobe for adding a trendy and fashionable touch to any outfit.
