As fall peeks around the corner, everyone finds themselves asking the same question — “What casual, cold-weather outfits can I wear that don’t make me look like a couch potato?”
It’s hard to find something that’s comfortable, looks nice, and also keeps us warm. This year, we’re going to help you find clothes that keep you from falling into the easy t-shirt and zip-up look.
Cropped hoodies are the perfect combination of casual, convenient, and put-together. Unlike regular-length hoodies, they look like actual stylish pieces of clothing, especially when thrown together with a pair of high-waisted skinny jeans.
They’ve become especially trendy with the recent athleisure and street style trends, where you can pair them with leggings, joggers, or other pants. Many celebrities have hopped on this trend, from models like Bella and Gigi Hadid to influencers like Kim Kardashian.
Cropped hoodies are an accessible trend that literally anyone can pull off. If you aren’t sure how to build an outfit with them, here is some celeb inspo to get you started.
