10 Trendy (Not Frumpy) Sweaters for Women Over 60

By Sandra Roussy March 25, 2023 Makeup and Fashion

Do you love sweater season? Sweaters are a staple in most people’s wardrobes and every season new styles and color combos become available.

From lightweight cotton blend sweaters to thick cable knit wool sweaters, let’s take a look at the variety of sweaters that are available this season.

Here are the best 5 trendy sweaters for older women:

  1. CABLE KNIT RAGLAN SWEATER – DIP DYE
  2. DROP SHOULDER CASHMERE PULLOVER
  3. VINCE CAMUTO Plus Size Cozy V-Neck Long Sleeve Sweater
  4. STYLE & CO Plus Size Heart-Print Sweater, Created for Macy’s
  5. The Alpaca Crew

Have you noticed how short some sweaters are now? Crop tops are trending at the moment, and they have been for a few seasons now. I wear crop tops on top of camis or other types of tops. I definitely would not wear a short crop sweater alone.

Here are some sweaters that are available this season from some of our favorite retailers.
