Loving Cropped sweaters

Sweater: MNG by Mango (last season), Jeans: E street Denim, Earrings: Jewelmint, Shoes: Express Stone Ring: Vintage, Ring: Judith Jack

For a long time tunics and longer t's, knits, and tops were in but last season entered crop tops (I should say they came back into rotation since the 90's). My initial reaction was HELL NO! lol I'm not the belly shirt kind of a girl (I mean come on, I have 2 kids!;). Lately I'm loving them. As long as you are wearing a higher rise jean and don't put your arms over your head too much, I think they are perfect.
I paired my crop sweater with my dark wash jeans, threw my hair in a bun, and put some amazing earrings on! It's wonderful how a dark lip, some eyeliner, and earrings jazz a very simple look up! ;)

aww ive always steered clear due to my mum tum (thanks to my son lol) but ive started to wear a hold-you-in type vest underneath for tummy control and cover! Meaning a whole new section of jumpers i can now look at :)
You look great in yours and no sign of a mum tum even after 2 kiddo's! and those earings go perfectly!

I've was grateful for the long tunic phase, as I love wearing leggings. I have a few "cropped" tops...love them too. With the right jeans...

I like the cropped look to...tend to gravitate towards longer/tunic when I am casually dressed- since its more comfy/coverage...BUT for a night out I am digging the shorter style for sure.

You look adorable as always and I LOVE your hair in a bun like that.
Happy turkey day.
