In the 1980s, girls took their scissors to their sweatshirts en masse. Originally, Jennifer Beals (in Flashdance) and Madonna (in real life) cropped their gym clothes so they could stay warm yet move freely while dancing. The rest of us just did it to look cool.

Check out this DIY cropped-front sweatshirt. Thanks to qualityrivets.blogspot.com for a great DIY!
Step 1: Cut the ribbing off the bottom of the sweatshirt.
Step 2: Cut a half-moon shape out of newspaper, pin to the front and cut the sweatshirt around the edge of the paper.
Step 3: Wear!
