Firstly, you’re probably wondering what a cropped sweater is, it’s essentially the same thing as a cropped top. It’s a sweater that is shorter than normal.
How To Wear A Cropped Sweater without Showing Your Stomach
When we hear the term “cropped” naturally one assumes showing off your midriff is a must. And maybe you’d like to wear a cropped sweater modestly, without showing off your midriff. It’s possible! Firstly, analyze the style of the top. If it’s boxy usually sizing up would make it fall perfectly at your waist line. In addition to sizing up here are a few other options:
- Layer it over your favorite button-down shirt. This looks so classy!
- Wear high-waisted jeans (or alternatively a high-waisted skirt)
- Again, size up one or two sizes for waist-side length. Depending on the cropped style, of course.

If you’re looking to feel put together with little effort wearing your high-waisted jeans with a cropped sweater is as easy and effortless as it can get! There’s a nice balance with the high-waist jeans and sweater with just a slight midriff showing.
Again, if you want to make this look a little more modest layer it over a button-down shirt and pair it with straight-leg jeans to elevate the look. This is a great option if you’re in the office and still want to look chic.
