8 Cool Ways to Wear a Cropped Sweater

When it comes to styling, there are certain celebrities we can always count on for a fresh dose of sartorial inspiration. For instance, we've recently spotted some of our favorite models, like Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner, wearing a cropped sweater in the coolest ways. A great transitional item, this short knit is perfect for layering over and under all your spring pieces. For a cool nighttime look, pair it with high-rise jeans and strappy heels like Chanel Iman did or with a midi skirt for a coffee date à la Selena Gomez. We bet this will be your new favorite sweater.
