I hate to break it to you, but winter is actually, truly here. With the temperatures getting cooler by the hour, it’s time to put away your tees and tanks and make room for a few new chunky knits. But, if you’re not ready to part with your favorite cropped tops just yet, allow me to introduce you to the cold-weather version: cropped cardigans. 

As we all know, the beginning of the season can leave us in wardrobe limbo: it's often too warm to pull out your heavy winter coat, but too cold for bare shoulders. The solution? A cropped cardigan. Whether you prefer them to be fitted or a little slouchy, I've found the perfect one for you. They make even the most warm-weather-ready slip dress feel a little more wearable in the winter months. Some are also outfitted with a string of glitzy buttons, which makes them ideal for holiday dressing. So, keep scrolling to see all of the best picks from around the internet
