Tis the Season for Sweater Weather

‘Tis the Season for Sweater Weather: Cute Sweaters for Under $40

Who doesn’t love some sweater weather? Even in southern california we get a little taste of this before 9am and after 7pm. As a true east-coaster, I anxiously wait for these times of day and dread the frequent temperature spikes on the weather forecast.

A quick side note for our tribe: We are all about mutually beneficial relationships here at the Newlymoms. So naturally, this article may contain affiliate links. This means that if you were to use the links provided and make a purchase, we may receive a small commission (at no additional cost to you). We only promote products we use, love, and/or fully support — it’s a win, win, win! If you have any questions about what we use, love and/or support, please reach out to us via our contact page.

What I don’t love about sweater weather is shopping – mostly because of the ridiculous LA traffic that never ceases on this coast. And if you were with us back when we posted our tried and true, “Mastering the New Mom One-Piece,” you know my criteria (which is very much worth repeating) below:


CUTENESS – aka newlymom chic

COVERAGE/COMFORT – ain’t nobody want a cute sweater to freeze or itch in – I’m buying you, you best keep me warm & cozy

CONVENIENCE – in other words – can be ordered off AMAZON

COST – under $40 (I upped it from $30 bathing suit threshold – warranted? Yes, I’d wear sweaters every day if I could – bathing suits? Not so much)

So naturally, I scrounged my favorite site for sweaters that meet the newlymoms 4 C’s. What I found interesting is that the first “sweaters” that come up in search either have a TON of mediocre ratings (ain’t nobody got time fo dose), or a FEW high ratings. No thank you on either option – so, like I said, I scrounged for the good stuff. And, as you know – if there’s no pics of REAL people in the reviews, this mama’s not interested.

So here’s what I found:

  1. Dokotoo Oversized Open-Front Cardigan

Yellow Front Open Cardigan Sweater Black Front Open Cardigan Sweater

There are a couple different options – but I LOVE the black cable-knit and reviewers are raving about the yellow color – super unique.


  1. iGENJUN Scoop Neck Tunic Dress

Green Scoop Neck Side Button Tunic Burgundy Scoop Neck Side Button Tunic

I can’t decide if the green or burgundy is my fave.


  1. V28 Polo Neck Sweater Jumper

Army Green Sweater Army Green Sweater Back

The Green, Red or White would be FANTASTIC for a holiday party – but for everyday wear I’d personally go with the Armygreen (my all-time go-to) or Beige.


  1. NENONA Snap Cardigan

Black Snap Cardigan Burgundy Snap Cardigan

This is more heavy t-shirt fabric, so plan to wear a coat overtop or an extra layer below – but it’s SUPA CUTE nonetheless.


  1. Levaca Cowl Neck Tunic Top w/ Pockets

Long Sleeve Cowl Neck

Anything with pockets is a go for me! And reviewers are raving about how great this one fits and the crazy high coziness factor rating.


  1. MOLERANI Round Neck Tunic Top

Black Long Sleeve Tunic with Buttons Brown Long Sleeve Tunic with Buttons

Another great option for a tunic top! Transitions well from office to home and cold to colder, as its easy to add extra layers on top of!


  1. Sidefeel Loose Fit Pullover Sweater

Grey Loose Fit Knit Sweater Green Loose Fit Knit Sweater

This is a great option for cold weather – but it does run big, so order one size down than you normally would.


  1. Sidefeel Hooded Button Down Cardigan

Grey Hooded Knit Cardigan Black Hooded Knit Cardigan

Loving the grey …


  1. PattyBoutik Mock Neck Cable Knit Cardigan

Olive Green Mock Neck Cable Knit Ivory Mock Neck Cable Knit

The ivory looks awesome in the reviewers photos but I’d obviously go with the Olive Green


  1. POGTMM Long Sleeve Patchwork Top w/ Thumb Holes

Patchwork Top with Thumbholes

Now, this isn’t quite a sweater but it’s freaking adorable and totally unique. The reviews say it’s super warm and cozy too – so it makes the list. Mostly because of the thumb holes …


  1. Onlypuff Loose Tunic Top w/ Pockets

Black Longsleeve Comfy Top With Pockets

I could def wear this all day erryday. It’s not quite a sweater either – but you can never have enough tops like dese onesss.


  1. Myobe Elbow Patch Open Front Cardigan

Black and White Striped Elbow Patch Cardigan

Now don’t go wearing this out in the middle of a snowstorm – but it’s too cute not to have on this list. Check it out!


Okay – now these 2 are on my watch list as more customer reviews come in – I won’t take the leap with the limited amount of info available, but just letting you know they’re on my radar:


AMAURAS Cable Knit Open Front Sweater Cardigan

Eggplant Front Open Sweater Khaki Front Open Sweater


Mafulus Oversized Batwing Sweater

Khaki Batwing Sweater Army Green Batwing Sweater

Any great options you’ve tried for sweater weather that should be added to the list? Comment below!


Happy Shopping!
