This Magical Item Flatters Every Body Type

We're always on the hunt for those special items that not only make us look great, but completely change the way we think about dressing. This season, that piece happens to be one of the It street style trends: the cropped jacket. 

This find is not only incredibly fashionable, but it's actually one of the most flattering buys you can make this season. If you think about the silhouette, the cropped detail hits right above your waistline, highlighting it perfectly while simultaneously lengthening your legs (whether you're wearing trousers or a midi skirt). Given that the jacket hem cuts high above the top of your trousers, your legs will inherently look much longer and won't look cut off in any way. Essentially, you can instantly elongate your frame with just this piece. 

To show you what we mean, we rounded up a variety of looks featuring this complementary piece.
