Every girl should have one great, go-to cropped jacket. Something she can throw over a dress before heading out on a date or layer over a tank on the weekend for a day of shopping. These are the things I had in mind when I designed the Cuffed Crop Jacket for my LC Lauren Conrad collection for Kohl’s. It’s the perfect mix of casual chic and soft sophistication. The drape-pleated front adds a touch of charm while the cuffed sleeves and cropped waist offer a relaxed, yet polished look. Whether you’re headed to a job interview, a first date or a girls’ night–a cropped jacket is a must-have style staple in my book.

I have this jacket in both blush and black. I’m especially loving the blush version though since pastels are big for spring and summer. The muted pink hue looks great with neutrals but it also works well with bolder shades too.

When it comes to styling the Cuffed Crop Jacket, I tend to wear it with more fitted and structured pieces. Because there is a little more volume in the front of this piece, it’s important to balance it out by wearing it with something more fitted so you don’t lose your figure. For instance, I usually pair it with a tailored dress or close-fitting tank. But to be honest, you could really wear it with any of the dresses from my LC Lauren Conrad collection or even just a blouse and jeans. Cropped cuts work for all body-types too. If you’re on the shorter size, they serve as a great way to elongate your frame. Pair a cropped jacket with a tank, a long necklace, fitted jeans and a pair of heels and you will have your friends thinking you grew a few inches! If you’re taller, pair it with a high-waisted skirt for a more proportional look. Simply put, the cropped jacket is a wardrobe essential–it’s versatile, flattering and chic.
