Kate Middleton has been taking more risks with fashion lately (like when she wore this deep yellow Erdem dress and repeat-wore this velvet hair bow). And while her latest sartorial choice isn’t exactly “risky,” it is right on trend. The duchess was just spotted rocking a cropped cardigan, aka the “it” sweater of winter, at Kensington Palace’s first Christmas party of the year. It’s not totally out of the norm for her to wear a cardigan, but it’s the way she wore it—fully buttoned from top to bottom—that’s turning heads. And it just so happens to make a perfect holiday piece for us mere mortals, too. Here are six cropped cardigans that will have you looking just as trendy as Kate.
Everlane Cashmere Crew Cardigan
Spun with cashmere for extra softness.
Leith Metallic Cardigan
A tasteful dose of holiday sparkle.
Kate Spade Rhinestone-Button Cardigan
A little bling never hurt anybody.
Theory Rib Cardigan
Wide, flat ribs make it figure hugging (and oh so flattering).
Elie Tahari Merino Wool Cropped Cardigan
Truly cropped, this sweater sits at your ribs.
Simona Barbieri Cardigan
We're picturing this with a silver pleated midi skirt.
