The 18 Best Cropped Cardigans That Are So On-Trend

Nothing defines easy fall dressing quite like a cropped cardigan. If putting together a cute outfit seems like too much to handle right now, a shrunken knit with your favorite jeans are the perfect answer. Styles range from basic button-ups to embroidered, embellished, or printed knits so there’s pretty much something for everyone. (I, for one, am quite partial to the ones I can also wear as a top.) 

For some inspiration on the best cropped cardigans of fall 2020, I turned to some of Instagram’s best-dressed ladies like Ellie Nes, Pia Baroncini, and Imani Randolph. During the autumnal months, I love wearing these shrunken knits with slip skirts and a leather jacket if I need another layer. Of course, jeans and boots are also great accompaniments for a cropped cardigan. However you style it, it’s safe to say you’ll be super comfortable all day long. Scroll down to shop my favorites.
