trend watch: CROPPED JACKET

A cropped jacket is a must!  It literally goes with everything from dresses to pants and because of the short length it's great for layering. 

Olivia Wilde and Lauren Conrad both stepped out in their cropped leather jackets.  Olivia has her jacket over a dress while Lauren is sporting a skirt.  Both outfits demonstrate how a cropped leather jacket can add edge to an ultra feminine outfit.  To get this look try the Mike & Chirs Leather Bolero Jacket available right now on  The bronze color is neutral so it will go with anything and the 3/4 sleeves make it great to layer over long sleeves.  It also has a great neck tie detail that you can leave open or tie like you would an actual neck tie.

Another cropped jacket option from Mike & Chris is the Wellington Jacket available in Black or Grey.  This jacket is made from wool so it's heavier than the leather but will keep you nice and toasty!  It looks great layered over long sleeves (seen here over the KJ Angel Wing Thermal).
