One of The BEST Basic Sweaters From The Nordstrom

One of The BEST Basic Sweaters From The Nordstrom Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the BEST time to stock up on fall and winter pieces. You can get some really gorgeous standout pieces…OR go for the basics and complete your wardrobe basics checklist. If you haven’t subscribed to my newsletter to get those checklists, you can do that here. I found the best basic black sweater from the sale this year that’s perfect for women over 40 and 50.

Plus, I also wanted to share a standout piece you’ll love!

If you’re interested in more Nordstrom Sale favorites, I shared my top 35 in this video. And, you can find outfits on both Denise, our Hive community manager, and I… in this post.

ALL of my Nordstrom Sale favorites here.

Best Basic Sweater

The BEST part about this Chelsea28 v-neck sweater? The length! It’s hard to find longer sweaters that cover your hips, butt, thighs and tummy. But, this one does and it’s not super billowy. You still look slim and trim. I also really like the high/low hem. It’s not bulky so it layers beautifully under jackets (see below)! It also comes in four other colors.

I paired the sweater with a pair of gray Rag & Bone Nina ankle skinny jeans. I love the wash which is neutral and versatile. Since they’re ankle length, they work perfectly for my petite frame! If you’re taller, they’ll be a bit more cropped on you. The denim is really high-quality, and the fit is perfect!

On my feet, I’m wearing the black Louise et Cie booties. These are similar to the booties from the sale last year, but this year they have a cool, low, sculpted heel. They’re super comfortable and I love the pointed toe!

AllSaints Burgundy Moto Jacket

As mentioned, the sale is great for loading up on the basics. But it’s also great for snagging some standout pieces like this gorgeous ALLSAINTS moto jacket! I love the rich burgundy color and all of the hardware is super luxe. It pairs beautifully over the black sweater, but you could easily throw it on over a blouse or tee to elevate a look! It’s a really cool, edgy piece to add to your wardrobe this fall! This burgundy moto jacket is another option at a lower price point.

BTW, can you believe the background in that first picture? It is so gorgeous, it looks like a green screen.
