The Cropped Jacket

I love a cropped jacket. And so it appears does Lisa Armstrong, The Daily Telegraph's fashion editor.

As she states in her online series The Investment Dresser: "Whatever your trouser or skirt shape of choice, the cropped jacket is your friend". And here are her reasons why... 


* What it lacks in androgyny or street cred, it more than makes amends for in versatility. 

* It works with jeans and trousers, beats most cardigans hands down as a cover-up over summer dresses, and if you're remotely considering this spring's culottes, big skirts and pencil skirts, you need one. 

* A flared "crop" can counterbalance thighs and accentuate waists. 

* Raglan or drop sleeves create an elegant, smooth line across the shoulders. 

* A voluminous cut is a neat way to channel the oversized trend and make your lower half look slimmer at the same time.


So, if you haven't yet joined the cropped circle, here's a selection of the short, sharp jackets we currently have in store...
