The Best Cropped Cardigan Outfit for Fall

If you’re anything like me, then jeans are a solid part of your work and weekend wardrobe. I’d say the denim staple is the building block for at least five out of seven outfits during the week. While my go-to denim look typically consists of a great pair of cropped, flared jeans and a simple tee or blazer, this fall I’m giving my weekend denim outfit combination a slight update. First, I’m swapping my fitted, cropped jeans for a super-loose option (I recently purchased this pair from Agolde and highly recommend them) and pairing them with one of my favorite trends for the season: cropped cardigans. This season more than ever, we’re seeing the once “boring” sweater style receive a fresh upgrade with several brands like Cotton Citizen and Lovers + Friends (to name a few) offering cool cropped styles.

I am particularly into the idea of styling this knit trend with loose jeans, which to me lends a balanced look since you have a cropped top showing a subtle amount of skin paired with super-loose jeans. It’s also the perfect outfit combination for fall if you live somewhere warm like Los Angeles. Ahead, you’ll find the denim-and–cropped cardigan pairings I’m eyeing right now, plus an example of how the outfit looks IRL.
