Striped sweaters are a classic look. They’re also a great way to add some personality to your wardrobe without going too far out of your comfort zone. But what if you have more than one striped sweater? The possibilities for styling these fun pieces can be endless! To help you get started, we’ve rounded up some ideas for how to wear multiple striped sweaters at once.
Style your stripes with a short sleeve shirt underneath
If you’re looking for a more casual look, try wearing your striped sweater over a short sleeve shirt. This look is especially great if you have on either jeans or khakis. It’s also perfect if you’re in the mood to wear something with a little more color than what we discussed above!
If you want to dress things up just a little bit more, try pairing your striped sweater with an untucked long sleeve shirt underneath it instead of the short sleeve version. You can choose any style of long sleeve shirt that fits well and looks good on you. We recommend sticking to darker colors like navy blue or black. They’ll help keep things looking classy without being too boring or plain!
Pair your stripes with a denim jacket or a bomber jacket
You can also pair your striped sweater with a denim jacket or bomber jacket. The denim jacket is probably the more casual option. However, if you’re in the mood for something dressier (and warmer), go for a bomber instead. These two pieces are great matches. Because they’ll add some edge to your look without being too edgy. It’s an approachable combination that can be worn casually or on a night out at the same time.

Style your stripes with contrasting pants
If you want to go with a more conservative look, try pairing a striped sweater with pants of the same color family. This can look great if your sweater has thin stripes and your pants have thick ones; just make sure that the proportions between the two are balanced. For example, if one is wider than the other, it’ll look weird when they’re side by side.
If you feel like taking things up a notch, try pairing your striped shirt with pants in different color families but with similar patterns or designs. For example, if your shirt features wide horizontal stripes and dark-colored piping around its collar and cuffs, consider wearing light-colored chinos instead of jeans so that they won’t seem too similar!
Style your stripes with other striped garments
One of the easiest ways to make a striped sweater look like you’re not wearing a pajama top is to pair it with other items that have stripes as well. Try pairing your striped sweater with:
- A button-up shirt (or even better, two buttons) that’s also got stripes on it. Bonus points if you can find one in the same color scheme as your sweater!
- A tie that matches your outfit and has the same style and thickness as your scarf or socks.
- A beanie or hat of any kind—to keep you warm during colder months—that matches both the color scheme of your sweater and its thickness. This could be made from any material such as wool/angora blend, cotton, acrylic etc… but don’t go overboard here; just ensure there’s some kind of patterning going on! You’ll look silly otherwise!
If possible then choose something subtle enough so it doesn’t overpower what else is going on around them but still gives enough contrast between each piece so they stand out against each other without being too distracting.
Wear white sneakers for extra casual, or black boots for something dressier
When it comes to pairing sneakers with your striped sweater, you want to go for a more casual look. White sneakers will work for any outfit, but black boots are better suited for dressier outfits. If you’re going for something casual, this is the perfect opportunity to showcase your personal style and make the most of your striped sweater. Feel free to experiment with different types of shoes like boots and sneakers—you can even wear loafers! You’ll find that black boots are great for any occasion, whether it’s a day at work or attending a wedding.
If you have an old pair of dark denim jeans lying around in your closet somewhere and don’t know what else do with them, now’s the time! Pairing these items together makes them both pop; they’ll look like they belong together even though they were never meant as a set in the first place!
