13 Sexy Sweaters That Bring New Meaning To “Sweater Weather”
Who says sweater weather has to be boring? Just because we’re smack-dab in the middle of winter doesn’t mean we have to cover up and wear frumpy clothes. Noooo! As 40+ women, we can and SHOULD feel good in our skin. Sexiness starts from within and knows no boundaries when it comes to age or season. I wanted to share a few sweaters that will have you feeling put together, confident AND sexy. This doesn’t have to mean skintight and cropped (necessarily) either. What makes them sexy? Cutouts, an exposed shoulder, slouchy and effortless silhouettes, and/or luxe fabrics like cashmere that are soft to the touch. Bright-colored sweaters are sexy head-turners because they are unexpected. These are all perfect for a date night or even wearing with jeans for an elevated, everyday look.
You can turn up the sexy at any age! We have some tips here to get you started…
When you style the sexy sweater, keep in mind the one skin rule. If you show skin in one area, try to keep other areas covered up. Let’s start things off with the sweater I’m wearing in the photos above. It’s a comfy, rib knit, off-the-shoulder sweater with a bralette strap peeking out. The exposed shoulder is what gives this outfit some sex appeal but it’s definitely more of a modest kind of sexy. I paired it with an uber-feminine skirt and edgy boots for an unexpected mix of styles. Keep scrolling for some sexy sweaters that cover it all (or not!) from mostly modest to downright va va va voom.

If you are looking for a sweater that is more subtly sexy, this is a lovely choice. The front cut-out is low, but not TOO low and you can still wear a regular bra underneath.
I like how you can control the level of sexy here by leaving the zipper ALL the way down with a lace bralette or cami peeking through or, zip it on up for more coverage. This would be a great day to night option!
