The '90s Sweater Trend We Didn't Know We Wanted

Cropped cardigans



Before you roll your eyes at the return of the cropped cardigan, hear us out—celebrities like Bella Hadid are proving the throwback trend can look incredibly cool when styled correctly. Sure, you can bundle up in your oversize sweaters and chunky knits, but when you need something to throw on over your transitional outfits, this ’90s fashion trend will do the just the trick.

When a piece of clothing can be styled multiple ways, what's not to love? Wear a shrunken cardigan on its own as a top à la Bella Hadid, or style it over a chic blouse or a dress—we promise you can’t go wrong with this lightweight sweater. Your options are truly endless.
