The fall season is not all about wearing oversized and bulky clothes because of the drop in temperature. To counter this, stripe sweaters are a great choice to dress in a cozy yet elegant way. Deciding on your sweater choice can be a lot, so you will need to invest in some good pieces to update your wardrobe for fall.
The first thing to consider is the color — there are several options, from bold, neutral, and cool shades. Another thing to look out for is the fit: if you’ll want to lose or tightly fitted on your body. The neck type is also one to look out for: round, collared, mock, turtle, and V-necks.
If your Instagram feed is not providing enough stripes outfit inspiration then take a look at some great stripe sweaters choices to take you through the fall season.
1. Collared striped sweater
Sophistication meets comfort with a sweater like this. Styled correctly, you can wear it to work as well as events. Pair with dress pants to get the most out of this piece for that a certified work look, while high waist trousers are a chic look for casual events.
Collared sweaters are versatile so they can be worn almost anywhere by anyone, but the bottoms are what will define the look.
2. White and black striped sweaters
These are perfect to wear anywhere. The basic colors on white and black striped sweaters blend well with other colors, so you can easily style them with any style of trousers to match the occasion.
Wear distressed jeans if you are going for a casual look, skinny jeans for a neutral look, and straight trousers for a more serious look. You can also pair this with a long skirt and boots.
As you choose the bottoms, think about your footwear because heels or flats can affect the final look of an outfit.
3. Blue and red combo
A bold color combination you will love to wear all the time is a blue and red striped sweater. The colors are bright yet cool because the blue helps to tone down the red. Wear this with black trousers and some sneakers or boots to complement the outfit.

5. Blue-grey stripes
If you’re feeling a little blue, you can try this blue-grey stripes combo. The cool color fits a calm mood perfectly, and you’ll get to look stylish while expressing yourself.

6. Multi-colored stripe sweater

7. Turtle neck stripes
Turtle necks are a top choice for a classy sweater outfit. Get a suited sweater color combo and style. A pair of wide-leg trousers will elevate this look while skinny jeans will keep you looking relaxed.
