Four Stylish Sweaters A Woman Over 40 Won’t Feel Frumpy In

As it gets cooler, it can be easy to fall into the habit of just throwing on whatever and calling it a day. But you should choose your sweaters wisely! Depending on the color, the material, and the overall design, a bad sweater can bring your whole outfit down. I bought a couple of sweaters this year that you’ll LOVE and won’t make you look or feel frumpy! You can throw all of these sweaters on with jeans and be warm…but stylish!

#1 | Sheer Sleeve Sweater

I love this gorgeous Aqua sweater! I’ve talked about Aqua sweaters from Bloomingdale’s a ton! You can see my most recent post about the sweaters here. These sweaters usually go on sale, making the price amazing for the quality!
This sweater has super cool sheer mesh sleeves, the cashmere is so soft, and I love the turtleneck. The weight is great for fall. And even with the puff sleeves, it’s still easy to layer under jackets and coats. I have the ivory, but it also comes in black.

#2 | Camo Cardigan Sweater

How cool is this Rails sweater!? The buttons, camo print, and cardigan style give it some extra design details that make it a more interesting sweater option. I also love that it’s cropped so you can tuck it or leave it untucked. You can unbutton it and wear a tee underneath too. There aren’t many sizes left so I also linked this Rails camo sweater that is very similar. If you’re looking for a cashmere camo option, check out this post.

#3 | Puff Shoulder Turtleneck Sweater 

If you’re looking for a basic with a twist, this turtleneck is perfect! The puff shoulder detail on this turtleneck is the perfect feminine touch. It’s warm, soft, and super versatile. It also layers beautifully under whatever fall jacket you want!

#4 | Star Sweater

I bought this Aqua star sleeve sweater a few years ago and still wear it every fall! The stars along the arms just give it a fun detail that’s different and cool. You can wear this alone and throw a jacket on if you have to run an errand and it’s cold out.

  1. Beautiful choices especially the purses. The leather is so smooth and gorgeous. I can’t wear the crew neck or turtleneck sweaters.

  2. I just wanted to say thank you for all your tips and information! I’m still here and will continue to subscribe to Busbee style! It’s great to get your upbeat and no nonsense information. I find it very helpful, Even though I am in my sixties, I still enjoy staying up to date on style and fashion. I appreciate all the time you put into your site. Keep up the great work!

  3. Hi erin love all the sweater suggestions but as a bigger busted woman i feel a roll neck adds to the size of my bust????
    What would be some fashionable alternatives
    Ps we are actually going in to our sUmmer here in australia but nice to see for next winter suggestions xxx

  4. I’m down to about 20-24hrs of work the whole month! I’m a finisher for a master custom cabinetmaker. I’m trying my best to get just your basics list, much less the few luxe items to elevate my outfits. I’m very discouraged & have such anxiety because though I’m on a budget, I would still like to look expensive while looking for another job. Wish you had a clothing donation DRIVe or something to that effect. Great advice, love your looks, & faithfully follow your channel.
