If you’re someone who still wants to look chic and put-together, even during the warmer climes of June through to September, a cropped blazer is perfect. If ever there were a need to spruce up an outfit or create a more sophisticated aesthetic, the cropped blazer aids in every way.
Providing modern drama by adding dimension while simultaneously nodding to traditional tailoring, cropped blazers are something everyone should be in on.
It’s safe to say that since the beginning of time the blazer has held its own. A big contender for the most timeless staple, a blazer has got your back whether you’re looking to smarten up a casual ensemble or tap into the borrowed-from-the-boys trend and go oversized – you can guarantee a blazer resides in every woman’s wardrobe. When the weather gets warmer though, they’re put to the test – that was until cropped blazers entered the chat. Since then, the game has changed.
Depending on what pattern, print or length you opt for, a cropped blazer has the ability to shine a light on your own individual aesthetic – making your outfit completely unique to you, as it should be – so think of wearing one the next time you slip into your favourite midi skirt or summer dress.
The likes of @nlmarilyn and @nataliakurda have been spotted donning the style on Instagram, taking ‘suited and booted’ to a whole new level.
We don’t need to tell you that blazers go with everything, but cropped blazers up the ante entirely. The sharp cut of their hemline can really accent a pair of high-waisted jeans or sweat shorts, or can offset your girly wedding guest dress and kitten heels.
This crystal-embellished cropped blazer from Area takes it one step further by eliminating the need for jewellery as well as providing unusual proportions. Pair it with a little black dress and designer shoes for a confident look that’s sure to turn heads.
If you’re looking for something a little more pared back, then this black cropped blazer from Alexander McQueen hits the nail on the head. The military-inspired pockets provide just the right accent to the capsule wardrobe-appropriate style.
