Trend Discourse: The Cropped Sweater

Mango Textured Cropped Sweater

      The crop top - no, I'm not talking about the Kim Kardashian style crop top (the way she wears it is just not my personal style), but rather a cropped sweater that doesn't reveal any part of your navel or upper stomach. I've been really reluctant to embrace the cropped top trend, but after seeing (or remembering) a way to wear it without showing any skin, I'm finally ready to incorporate this trend in a way that I'm comfortable with.

      I really can't start out this post without honoring the original girl who made the cropped sweater fashionable - that girl is none other than the highly beloved Cher Horowitz from Clueless. To this day, I still love all of her outfits in that movie (and I can quote just about all the lines from the movie). When I first saw the movie as a tween, I loved one particular outfit of hers the most - yep, that one. The one she wears during her failed driving test and when she finally has the epiphany that she loves Josh ("I'm totally, butt-crazy in love with Josh!" Cue the fountain.). In that outfit, she was wearing a silver sleeveless crop-top over a sheer long shirt dress - no bare skin in sight. Obviously I've always loved this outfit, and since the cropped top trend is back, I think I'll give it a go this fall. See pictures below for how modern girls have styled this trend.
