While the idea of wearing outfits with cropped sweaters seems a little counterintuitive, we can’t help but feel like they’re some of the best looks of the season—especially when worn before it gets too cold. So, as you swap your summer wardrobe out in exchange for pieces that’ll keep you warm and cozy in the coming months, this is one unique knit you’ll want to have in your closet.
We know, we know… Baring midriff during the fall seems a little odd, but when combined with long sleeves and warmer knits, this will become your favorite transitional piece yet. I mean, even our favorite French girls are loving this chic style. Plus, the styling possibilities are endless. Wear them with a pair of high-waisted jeans when you’re feeling more casual, or dress them up with a satin skirt and a pair of ’90s-style strappy sandals for date night.
If you’re looking for more inspiration, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite looks from It girls who have made this trend second nature. Check them out below, and then shop their outfits to wear the style on your own.
