There’s not many pieces of fall clothing sexier than the cropped sweater, which, in cardigan form, can double as chic outerwear as well, when paired with high waisted trousers and buckled ankle boots. Whether it was Brigit Bardot lazing around, smoke in hand or, more recently, Blake Lively, the uber girl, traipsing around Paris in a nautical piece, the picture of effortless style, our favorite celebrities are nuts about this quintessentially casual sweater .
Our suggestions? Pair the pullover with skinny jeans in interesting jewel colors and the basic cropped cardigan with an embellished top (Black Lace?). Be very careful with this style because you can over layer (the avoid a bulky base).
