I always think of striped sweaters as casual pieces, but the truth is they can be dressed up, too (and you can have all sorts of matchy-clashy fun with them too, as the woman above is doing).
Let’s start off with a nice yellow option, since that color has been in my head lately. I think this would look fantastic with leather jeans.
For some reason, this reminds me of something one of the kids in a Peanuts cartoon would have worn, and I mean that in a good way.
The subtle stripe at the neckline here is a tiny detail, but it kind of makes this one standout to me.
I like the contrast here between the cropped cut and the very long sleeves.
An extremely well-priced cashmere V-neck that I could see wearing constantly.
Same goes for this zipper hoodie (which, alas, is not quite as well-priced as the one above, but would maybe work out nicely on the cost-per-wear front).
This is just so bright and cozy.
I love the spacedye effect here.
The thin stripes here are nicely refined.
I do like a good funnel neck, and this one is so excellently slouchy.
This is maybe more of a colorblock sweater than a striped one, but I’m including it here anyway cause it’s pretty great.
The orange really pops against the camel here.
This looks a lot pricier than it is.
I am so crazy for the high fuzziness factor here.
Black stripes keep all the rainbow stripes from being too much on this cashmere number.
More cashmere: I’d wear it just as shown here, with khakis.
A striped and oversized cardigan like this makes a great layering piece.
This is so French, with the gold buttons and Breton shirt styling.
A cropped cardigan that’d be perfect—and kind of sexy—with a pencil skirt.
I dig how the stripes look sort of pixelated here.
This is just so fabulously big and huggy.
