ICYMI, cropped hoodies are having a moment. This layering piece gives pro dancer meets comfy, cool girl and is a fall fashion must-have. Cropped sweatshirts have been spotted on Bella Hadid, street style fashionistas and our Blogifam alike (helllooo beloved Shruggie.)
The best part about this cozy staple is its versatility. From throwing it on over your workout gear before a sweat sesh to pairing it with cargos and a tight tank for a baddie aesthetic at brunch, the styling options are endless.
The practical side of the POPFLEX Step Up Shruggie is flattering, offers hood access, and arm coverage for cooler days. But it has a sassy side too, with its ultra-cropped hem that sits just above the bust in the front, and dips slightly in the back.
Here are 5 ways to style your cropped hoodie this fall.

1. Crushing a workout
I love a good fitness fit, and when temps drop I’m always ISO an easy top layer to get me from the car into the gym, my pilates class or to rock during my at-home workout warm-up.
A cropped hoodie pairs perfectly with workout basics – leggings, sports bras, joggers and my current obsession, onesies. When it comes to keeping myself warm enough to get moving but cool enough to keep moving, I’m a big fan of this shortsie and Shruggie combo. Since the Shruggie features an ultra cropped hem, it warms my upper body while showing off the shortsie’s neon strap details and fitted body for a fierce touch.
We weekend warriors need the comfort of staying in bed past 10 am (but make it cute) when we brunch with the girls.
The easiest way to achieve a cozy chic balance is throwing the cropped sweatshirt over a skirt set like this floral high neck bra and matching skort. Mixing feminine pieces with a sportier sweatshirt gives you a pulled together look that’s still effortless and feels like your upper body is wrapped in your fav comforter that’s soft as a cloud.
Did you warm up by stockpiling your cart and sipping a PSL? No sweat. It’s easy to slip the hoodie off and tie around your waist – without a dreaded extra layer of fabric heating your low back and legs, thanks to that ultra cropped hem.
Since it’s hard to think of an outfit a cropped hoodie doesn’t pair well with, this closet staple is a foolproof addition to your go-to errand fit. For an added fall fashion flare (literally) try pairing it with flared leggings.
4. Casual date night
Take your LBD for a spin with a Shruggie pulled over your shoulders. It’s ideal for a casual date night, even if it comes off once you arrive at your destination. Opt for black from head to toe for a dressier vibe, pairing a black cropped hoodie with black cowboy boots for a sexy western spin on a classic date night dress.
If you’re going on a day date, layer a neutral color with your LBD and favorite casual sneakers for a sportier look.

Nothing says fall like boots and a sweater. Give this classic look an edgy update with moto boots and a cropped hoodie.

When you’re kinda cold – or kinda not – its added warmth is all you need in a functional, stylish way.
