Style tip?  Cropped jackets and blazers are a mainstay, especially since they tend to be fairly figure flattering.  What’s new is the uber cropped jacket that hits above the natural waist.  While they’re not as warm as full length jackets, they’re ripe with possibility for layering.  Plus, they’re great for long waisted women, as they visually shorten your torso and lengthens your leg line.

What do you think?  Would you wear an uber cropped jacket?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

    That looks ridiculous.

    I think my eye needs to adjust to this. I get how it lengthens, but it’s also sort of like an unfinished sentence (sorry, I’m a writer).

    Thanks for all the great posts.

    I’m short, short waisted, and carry my weight in my midsection. While I think this look is cool, it’s not a look for me. Sigh….

    I love it! I’m petite, so this proportion works well on me.

    I’m petite too and am looking to take advantage of this trend :)

    Thanks for reading, Julia! Perhaps try cropped jackets that aren’t so severe. That way, you get the benefit of the lengthening effect without going overboard.

    I’m petite, I don’t think it’s flattering even for petites. It looks like it shrunk in the dryer!
