How To Style A Crop Top Hoodie

We don’t like to pick favorites. BUT… when there’s a trend as comfy as this one, anything goes. Crop top hoodies, or cropped sweatshirts, are having a moment and we are here for it. They’re the PERFECT mix of comfort and style. They work on literally ANY body shape and size.

Cropped hoodies are also insanely versatile, and versatility is a crucial part of being a fashion-forward baddie. You can style a cropped hoodie with literally anything. Throw it on as a layering piece or rock it as a top, whatever matches your vibe, and BTW, you don’t have to show your stomach if you don’t want to!

If, like us, you took one look at a cropped hoodie and thought YAS QUEEN, only to then realize you’re not sure exactly what to wear with it, we got you babe. We’re sharing a round-up of ways you can style a crop top hoodie and each one is sure to make you look and feel HAWT.

How To Style A Crop Top Hoodie

How To Style A Crop Top Hoodie

With Workout Basics

Considering a hoodie is usually grouped in with other workout clothes and athleisure, this is probably the easiest way to style a cropped hoodie. Put on your fave workout basics like leggings, shorts, a sports bra, or tank top, and then throw on a cropped hoodie. 

With High-Waisted Bottoms

High-waisted bottoms have been on-trend for a while now and they’re showing no signs of fading. Pairing high-waist bottoms with a cropped hoodie works for several reasons. For one, it creates a balanced, streamlined silhouette, which is just fancy talk for “it looks goooood.”

Secondly, if you don’t want to show your stomach, wearing high-waisted bottoms, or extra-high-waisted bottoms depending on how extreme the hoodie’s crop is, means you can wear a cool cropped hoodie without baring even an inch of your midsection.

For the babes who don’t mind baring some skin, pair your high-rise bottoms with a super cropped hoodie.

Over A Plain Top

Just like with a full-length hoodie, one of the perks of wearing a cropped hoodie is that you don’t have to put a lot of thought into what you’re wearing underneath. Your best bet is to stick with a plain top, that way if the hem peeks out, it won’t take away from the whole ‘fit.

With Jeans Or Denim Shorts

For a super casual look, wear your cropped hoodie with jeans or denim shorts. Think about it… denim works as a neutral, which gives it supreme versatility. So, no matter whether it’s a hot pink tie-dye cropped hoodie or a beige one that caught your eye, it’ll look perfect with denim bottoms.

As A Matching Set

Oh how we looove a good matching set! Matching sets are mega popular right now, and we’re loving cropped hoodie sets. The best thing about them? They’re comfy enough to sleep in yet chic enough to wear out. 

Add Casual Footwear

A cropped hoodie isn’t exactly evening-wear, right? Sooo, to match the vibe, stick with casual footwear. Sneakers are the obvious choice, but sandals and slides work too. Or.. you know what? If you can pull off heels with a casual ‘fit then DO IT. 

Under A Jacket

Style “rules” BEGONE… yes, you can, wear a layering piece over a layering piece. From long overcoats to denim or leather jackets, a cropped hoodie and jacket, the duo just works!

Don’t Forget Accessories

In those moments when you’ve gotten dressed but you’re like “UGH something is missing…”, ACCESSORIZE. From sunglasses and earrings to bracelets and necklaces, accessories don’t just elevate an outfit, they complete it

Cropped Hoodie Street Style

Only a few things stop us in our tracks like a perfectly put-together street style look. Gawking at one killer outfit after the other often inspires us to create our own.

We styled it with black faux-leather pants, then pulled the whole look together with a long grey coat.

Faux Leather Pants ‘Fit

Here’s another chic way to wear faux leather pants with a cropped hoodie. Instead of a black cropped hoodie, we paired these leather pants with a trendy Earth-toned hoodie. Because we’re suckers for shades, we knew Tom Ford’s cat-eye sunglasses were the perfect finishing touch.

Comfy & Chic In Wide Leg Pants

Wide-leg pants have some serious staying power as far as trends go, and linen is our fave warm-weather material. Lucky for all of us, wide-leg linen pants and lightweight crop top hoodies are a match made in heaven.

If you don’t already own a pair, you’ll love the wide-leg relaxed linen pant from James Perse. Grab them in white, then snag this crop hoodie to wear with them.

Edgy Pencil Skirt Outfit

Here’s another testament to the versatility of cropped hoodies. You can take a sleek midi skirt and totally switch up the vibe with a black cropped hoodie. It’s a daring look that you can wear practically anywhere.
