Friday Favorite: Cropped Sweaters

Going back to yesterday's post - my current friday favorite are cropped sweaters! I already have a long torso, so I try to avoid tops that are too long. Cropped sweaters with a high-waisted pant or skirt create the illusion of longer legs. It's a trend that's been around for ages, our favorite old Hollywood stars have even worn it! Also, above, Blake Lively wore them during the film, Age of Adaline

Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Ava Gardner 

I personally prefer cropped sweaters with a higher-neckline or mockneck but there are so many different variations this season. Below, the A.L.C. option seems so comfy and easy to throw on but the Topshop pick is so casual and would be cute to run errands or go out in. Lastly, I can't get enough of the color blocking this season and the Rag & Bone sweater below pulls off the two trends beautifully. 

If you're looking for a super trendy way to pull this off, a good mix would include a 70's inspired skirt, stacked rings and heeled ankle booties. Happy Friday everyone!
