Ageless Style: Cozy Crew Sweatshirt

 It’s time again for my quarterly Ageless Style post! For any new faces around here, every quarter I get together with a fantastic and diverse group of bloggers to style similar wardrobe staples or seasonal trends in a variety of ways. What makes this series fun, is that we have a representative from every age group to show you how they would style the specific trend or staple we have chosen for the quarter. I share a lot of trend styling for the 20-30 something year old woman and I'm excited to show options for all ages. It's my hope with this series to continue to inspire you with great style no matter your age.

For this quarters Ageless Style post we have chosen to show you looks featuring a cozy crew sweatshirt. Ever since covid lockdown this wardrobe piece has been trending. While stuck inside we've seen it paired with joggers that match or biker shorts. For today's Ageless Style post I wanted to get out of sweatpants and elevate the crew sweatshirt for actually leaving the house. 

A great way to instantly elevate your crew sweatshirt is to add jewelry. I added a few layering necklaces to my look, you can pile on all the jewels and add a bracelet stack or earrings. I also added a great pair of shoes, obviously, and a long wool coat because we live in Ohio and layers are always appreciated. 

I hope you enjoy my crew sweatshirt style and as always, I hope you get inspired the next time you wear your favorite crew sweatshirt!

Styling Notes: Sweater weather is my favorite time of year. I love a good cozy sweater that will keep me warm and stylish. This sweater is one of my favorites because of the detail. The detailed embroidery catches the eye and is flattering to the waist. 

I styled this look with a pair of army green pants. The color of the sweater is neutral which pairs well with the army pattern. I like this look because it is simple with a bit of flair.

Bio: For those new to my blog, I’m Lesa, better known as Prissy Missy. I am the misfit, quirky fashion-obsessed enby from That Misfit Mama Bear Life With Prissy Missy. When I am not empowering or encouraging others with fashion and flair, I can be found with copious amounts of coffee while helping others with their homeschool journey. I may be a bit eccentric, but hey, that's what makes life interesting, right?

Styling Notes: Those who know me know I am no fan of cold weather. To compensate, I have a rather large collection of warm weather wear like my enormous cardigan collection and my ever-growing sweatshirt pile!

I love the over-sized sweatshirt trend and because I didn’t know what size I would end up postpartum, I am glad that big sweatshirts are trendy because I may have bought all my new ones for winter a little too big! 

For me, I like to pair mine with a tank top underneath and then a cute pair of leggings! However, every once in a while, when I am really cold, I go for a flannel underneath with the collar poking out! 

The thing I love about sweatshirts is that they are always in style and always will be in style. Whether you go for a plain one, patterned one, or a graphic one, they are a great way to express who you are!

Bio:  Hello, friend!  I’m Betsy, the Cleveland blogger behind Natty Gal, wife to Gavin, and fur-mom to Dolce, our 1.5-year-old Bichon-Frise.  Natty Gal shares inspiration for creating a simple, stylish, and satisfying life via lifestyle, fashion, and travel posts. I’m a dedicated supporter of women that are on their journey to becoming their best selves and living their best lives.  I’d love to invite you to check out my blog and become a part of my “women supporting women” family!

My day-in, day-out style tends to be pretty casual and sporty so when I heard that sweatshirts were the theme for this post I felt excited.  Friends, sweatshirts don’t have to be basic or frumpy.  Just look at the gorgeous floral embroidery on this hoodie from Maeve (an Anthropologie store brand)! And that’s only one of the details that take this garment from basic to beautiful. Other features to note are the balloon sleeves, the side-split detail on the hem, and the absence of an annoying string tie on the hoodie.  All serve to give this casual piece a much sleeker and more finished look.  

Style Notes: I paired this pretty sweatshirt with some wardrobe basics: a white tee, cropped kick-flare denim, white Stan Smith sneakers, and my pretty but practical Tory Burch Perry Bombé cross-body bag. It’s a comfortable and casual outfit that still shows a bit of style and hints at my nature-loving personality.  You can shop this look (and more) by downloading the LiketoKnowit app and following me at Natty Gal.

Bio: Hi Ladies! I’m Phyllis, the woman behind, a website dedicated to empowering women over 60 to be their best selves. I blog primarily about fitness, nutrition, and motivation but I also love to bring my passion for fashion and beauty to my followers as well. Most women in my age group feel forgotten and I like to remind them of their vibrancy and vitality.


Comfy casual has become my mantra over the last year and I think this photo says it all. This sweatshirt, from my son’s graduating year, celebrates the 150th anniversary of Cornell University, which was founded in 1865. It’s chubby and warm and just what you want a sweatshirt to be. The best part is it has a kangaroo pocket, a must for anything I wear nowadays. I simply paired it with my favorite leggings and comfy kicks.

Styling Notes: I have a huge collection of comfy, casual sweatshirts, but I also own many beautiful dressy ones. I wear most of them casually but also use them as a cardigan when I get dressed up. Don’t be afraid to mix up your clothing pieces for new looks.
