The season of crop tops, spaghetti strap tops, sandals, and shorts has sadly passed. Now, the longer the sleeves and the more coverage a garment can provide you, the better. Or so we thought. Despite the colder temperatures that have arrived, we have great news: There are plenty of ways you can incorporate your favorite summer top style into your fall outfits. Say hello to cropped sweaters.

Just because they're cropped doesn't mean they're not weather-friendly. Au contraire! With cropped sweaters, you can have even more fun with your styling and layering. These cozy sweaters with perfectly calculated fabric that hits your waist just right are a nice way to reminisce about warmer times every morning when you're getting dressed.

Plus, by choosing cropped sweaters instead of your usual oversize fit ones, you can get the best of both worlds: cozy comfort and cool, casual style. From wearing them with extra high-waisted trousers or layering them over bold-colored, skin-tight turtlenecks, the options go from safe styling to out-of-the-box.

But don’t take our word for it! For some of our favorite Instagram style stars, cropped sweaters have become staples in their winter wardrobes, just like oversize sweaters and lightweight sweaters have. To see how they can become part of your favorites, we highly suggest you scroll down and see the 15 cropped sweater outfits for winter we’ve rounded up, that make perfect sense, style- and weather-wise.
