When it comes to finding BIG trends for little prices, I always head to Kohl’s first! On my latest shopping endeavor, I was determined to see if I could try out the most raved-about cropped cardigan trend without breaking the bank (in case I wasn’t a fan after all).

Spoiler alert: I tried it for UNDER $20 ✅, it looks similar to Free People for almost $60 less ✅, annnnnd I love all the looks I can create with this cropped cardigan ✅!

TIP: For a look that most resembles this Free People version, consider sizing up! I was *this* close to sizing up to a M or L (my normal size is XS) to achieve that slouchy, relaxed look which I think would be super cute! Maybe I’ll scoop up just one more while they’re on sale to try this out. 😉

Who else rocked ‘shrugs’ on repeat in the early 2000s? 😂🙋‍♀️

I was a little unsure if this style had actually matured over time, but to my surprise, this cardigan gave me a put-together and polished look no matter which way I styled it. Plus, depending on what kind of fit you like, this cropped cardigan lends itself to all the Y2K, oversized, casual, and even professional looks you might like!

There ya have it, ladies! Just because an item says ‘cropped’ don’t think for one second you can’t boast that beautiful body in other ways! 🤩

Cropped hemlines actually have the magic effect of making the legs seem longer 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 but only when worn correctly, which leads me to my next point…

⚠️ Just be sure to follow this ONE helpful styling tip when wearing this cardigan:

Tops should always fall above or at the same length as the cardigan. Wearing tops that extend past the cardigan can make your body look disproportionate and frumpy, and your legs look shorter.

In addition to being super low-priced and SO easy to style, I think it’s the ideal layering piece for upcoming winter occasions (especially that pretty red color! 😍)

    Can I ask where you got the blue light wash jeans? They look great on you!
