With warmer weather (hopefully) right around the corner, we’ve been looking to the Spring 2020 runway shows for guidance. From 70s-style pointed collar shirts to long denim skirts to polka dots to drawstring, well, everything, there are lots of fresh trends to choose from. But while we wait with breath that is bated for the temperature to at least get to 60, the Fall 2020 trends have been slowly revealing themselves and, surprisingly, many are spring-appropriate.

One of our favorite trans-seasonal options? Cropped blazers. From Christopher John Rogers and Rotate Birger Christensen’s shiny takes to Eckhaus Latta’s orange set, the cropped blazer is proving to be a key wardrobe staple for Fall 2020. But thanks to their shortened silhouette, they’re perfect for showing some skin in spring.

Now unless you work in a very creative workplace, cropped blazers aren’t exactly office-appropriate. But they are very weekend-worthy. Just think how put-together you’ll look running errands in a cropped blazer, a white tee, jeans and some form of sandals. Or brunching with your besties after slipping a more casual incarnation over a slip-dress-and-flats combo. They also double as spring jackets in case you’re looking to make your wardrobe a little more versatile. And when the weather starts to get chilly again come fall, you can always wear a sweater under your blazer to keep warm.

Think you have to wait a few months till stores catch on to the cropped blazer trend? Think again. There are already plenty of picks to choose from. Check out our favorites in the slideshow below.
