I love an oversized moment as much as the next person, but when it comes to my outerwear, I’ve always preferred a cropped length. Especially in everyday wear, the silhouette makes for more versatile styling options, as a larger fit option can tend to take over the whole body. And as someone who’s only 5”3, I need the length where I can get it. Since shorter jackets cover less, there’s more opportunity to play around with the rest of your outfit since it’ll be more visible. I personally love to pair cropped jackets with a tee and a midi skirt but trust me, there’s a variety of styling options to choose from.
