Trend Alert: Cropped Jackets

If you're looking for a new look to try on this Fall, consider the cropped jacket. This shrunken, chic style is great for layering, since it helps balance out more voluminous pieces. This season's cropped jackets come in dozens of variations, with double-breasted buttons, angular cuts, and high necks. Here are some of my favorite finds at designer and non-designer prices.

Robert Rodriguez Ruche Sleeve Jacket, $429, available here.

Karen Zambos Vintage Couture Cropped Jacket, $407, available here.

Adam + Eve Cropped Formal Jacket, $325, available here.

Charlotte Ronson Pinstriped Cropped Trench, $238, available here.

To see the non-designer versions,

Bebe Cropped Jacket, $149, available here.

Delia's Hannah Jacket, $62, available here.

Wet Seal Plaid Button Front Jacket, $26.50, available here.

Kimchi & Blue Double Breasted Jacquard Jacket, $58, available here.

Hmm. Tall and longwaisted,boobies+cropped jacket = awkward. I shall admire them on others! Most jackets look cropped on me :( Delias and bebe ones are cute, someone should wear one for us, right Whip?

I don't really get this trend - it just seems anti productive. Aren't jackets supposed to keep you warm? And how warm will you be if half the jacket is cut off? I also don't think this trend works on anyone bigger than a size 4. But alas, they are adorable jackets. Just not for me. And not for Chicago weather. But hey, all you LAers out there, go for it! = )

I love the C. Ronson and the Rodriguez and the Delia's is cute also. Zara has some really cute cropped jackets right now, too.

The Ronson and Wet Seal ones are cute, but the others look as if they ran out of thread and just left them unfinished.

I don't really like cropped jackets, they always make me feel like my clothes are too small. But I like the Bebe one.
