Three Ways to Wear a Striped Sweater

October 28, 2015, by Alison @ Puppies and Pretties

A striped sweater or shirt is a timeless piece for every season. It can be paired with so many different items in your closet. I put a striped shirt as a staple right there with a black or white tee. Today I'll show you three classic ways to style a striped sweater for fall.

Casual

It doesn't get more classic than a striped sweater and dark wash jeans. This is a perfect outfit for running errands or casual Friday. I kept my look simple with just a monogram necklace, but you could easily spice it up with a statement necklace.

Neutral Dressy

For a dressier outfit, I paired my striped sweater with a grey ponte circle skirt and knee high boots. Once again, I kept is simple with all neutrals. When the weather gets cold, a pair of tights can keep you warm.

Pattern Mixing

Probably my favorite way to wear stripes is with pattern mixing. Stripes are the perfect starting point for mixing prints. For this outfit, I paired it with a plaid scarf. But you could also go with florals, polka dots, or other stripes.

Live somewhere warm? There are easy substitutions. For casual, swap out the sweater with a tank top or tee or go with a dark pair of shorts and flats. For neutral dressy, swap the boots out for sandals. For pattern mixing, try with a lightweight scarf or mix prints with a pair of floral shorts.
