I love an oversized moment as much as the next person, but when it comes to my outerwear, I’ve always preferred a cropped length. Especially in everyday wear, the silhouette makes for more versatile styling options, as a larger fit option can tend to take over the whole body. And as someone who’s only 5”3, I need the length where I can get it.  Since shorter jackets cover less, there’s more opportunity to play around with the rest of your outfit since it’ll be more visible. I personally love to pair cropped jackets with a tee and a midi skirt but trust me, there’s a variety of styling options to choose from.

If you’re also a fan of shorter outerwear or simply want to give the cut a try, I scoured through the sites of your favorite retailers to find the best options in a selection below.  Don’t worry, I still have a love for my long and slouchier jackets, but fashion wouldn’t be any fun without changing it up a little every now and then, would it?
