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 fav workout basics like leggings, shorts, a sports bra, or a tank, and then throw on a cropped hoodie. 

With High-Waisted Bottoms

High-waisted bottoms are so hot right now. If you’re ALL ABOUT the high-waisted trend, try pairing them with a cropped hoodie. You can totally pull off this look, even if you don’t want to show your stomach. In fact, extra-high-waisted bottoms allow you to flaunt a trendy cropped hoodie, without a single inch of your midsection showing. 

For the babes who don’t mind bare some skin, try pairing high-rise bottoms with a super cropped hoodie.

Over A Plain Top

Just like with a full-length hoodie, when you wear a cropped hoodie you don’t have to put a lot of thought into the top you wear 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

Keep it casual by wearing jeans or denim shorts with a cropped hoodie. Remember, cropped hoodies are crazy versatile. Do you know that pair of high-waisted jeans folded up in your closet? It’s their time to shine. Or, if you wanna show off your legs in denim shorts but can’t go without the comfort of a hoodie… you know what to do. 

As A Matching Set

Remember the days when matching sets were reserved for pajamas or suits? Yeah… NOT ANYMORE. Matching sets are mega popular right now, especially sets that include a cropped hoodie. The best part about matching sets? 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 is a great duo. 

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
