This Jacket Trend Hasn't Been as Popular as Others, But It's Back for Fall 2022

Outerwear has certainly gotten the relaxed treatment over the last few seasons. Whether it's a blazer or a leather jacket, must-have silhouettes have been coming in oversize and longline cuts. While these styles will be front-runners for fall 2022, cropped jackets will continue to rise in popularity as well.

Cropped blazers and similar styles have always been around (and certainly had a presence this spring), but the fashion crowd will embrace this cut along with cropped denim and moto jackets in an even more noteworthy way over the next few months.
