3 Fall Sweaters with a Creative Vibe

One of the things I often hear from women in their 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s is they want to start dressing more creatively. They’ve done the corporate look, the mom look, and now it’s time for something a little different, even artsy, without going overboard. An easy way to look more creative is with a fabulous sweater.

There are all kinds of beautiful knits this fall that have a subtle, artsy vibe. Here are a few of my favorites and how to style them to look Age-Amazing!


Purple fall sweater with bold shoulder and black flare pants.

Creative/Dramatic Bold Shoulder Sweater

I had no sooner styled this DKNY sweater, and it sold out, in purple at least! No worries – It’s still available in taupe, a stone color, and a slightly different version in black.

This shows you that a classic style with a slight creative twist is what women want! Looking closer, you will see this is a basic V-neck knit with bold shoulders and a faux layered front. It’s very architectural, slightly dramatic, and has a futuristic look.

This top looks fabulous with dark flare leg pants or jeans because the wide shoulder + flare bottoms of the pants balance each other out, giving you an hourglass shape and making your waist look tiny. Plus, it’s a bit cropped, so it looks perfect with the trending high-waisted pant styles.

You can wear a sweater like this as is or soften up the angles a bit with a pretty print scarf. Add some chic square-toe booties to go with the space-age look of this and a soft, slouchy suede bag, and you have a fresh new look for Fall.

Crafty Knit Cropped Sweater

Some of you may find artsy often looks too sharp or severe and may prefer a softer look, and that’s where crafty style comes in. This cozy cropped mock neck sweater is homey and really cute with these sweet applique florals. Wide bell sleeves add romance to this style; again, we see the cropped length, which is more youthful and flattering with high-rise pants.

For something different, try knee-high boots in this unique creamy shade and a similar colored bag for a classy coordinating look.

These chic gold earrings – layered and squared, are more exciting than regular hoops and add to the creative look.

Fall Sweaters - Gray batwing sweater with gray cargo pants.

Artsy Batwing Sleeve Sweater

A guaranteed way to look more fashion-forward is with a Batwing sleeve. Batwing or Dolman sleeve sweaters, as they are officially known, have a very deep armhole and a tight wrist. The sleeve is cut as part of the bodice, giving the sweater a relaxed, artsy shape. I love this chic ribbed sweater for the sleeves, but that cool mock neck is fabulous, too. This sweater looks elegant and artsy when you wear it monochromatically. That is worn with varying shades of gray to create a long, chic column of color.

I love a Dolman sleeve, and a bonus is these types of sweaters are super comfy because they have an oversized feel and are easy to move around in.
