We all probably have that lone striped sweater in our closets that we throw on when we need to saving grace of a fail-proof outfit, such as those moments when we need to run quick errands or take a short walk. Fret not, poor sweater, for you too can become chic – we pulled together five ultra chic looks to bring your striped favorite back to life.

1. Deliciously Skintight Leather Pants

Quickly spice up your striped sweater by slipping into a pair of deliciously skintight leather pants (zipper trimmings are a huge plus). To crank up the good-vs-bad contrast, pop a structured collared top underneath your sweater. Like Levi from TLNIQUE, You can go for a sweet pair of Mary Janes or leather cutout heels, an oversized watch, and a leather shoulder bag to finish your look.

2. Origami Skort and Cutout Booties

Yes, the origami skort is not quite dead yet – instantly freshen up your striped top by pairing it with one of these geometric beauties. We love how Verónica of With or Without Shoes mixed her skort and stripes with a pair of cutout booties. Throw on some sunnies and a plushy oversized leather bag, and you’re well on your way to a chic casual day.

3. Tri-Tone Ensemble

Black-and-white striped tops can easily influence your entire outfit to end up in the tried-and-tested two-tone combination (which is not a bad thing, if done properly), but in our case, we say a pop of color goes a long, long way. Like Micah of Micah Gianneli, play with one color in different hues and insert them into your outfit, spreading them out well across different pieces such as your jacket, belt, shoes, or beanie.

4. Boyfriend Jeans and Great Heels

Some of us just cannot function properly if we do errands in anything else apart from our denims. The good news is that the jeans-and-top combination can be easily spruced up by choosing a great pair of heels, a structured bag, sunnies, and a chunky piece of jewelry. Don’t forget to grab a blazer in case you need to dress up. Meijia’s blog is no longer available online.

5.  Oversized Jacket and Shorts

We love this look for that chilly-but-forgiving period between winter and spring because your hibernating denim cutoffs can finally be awoken from sleep. Like Renée of Fashion Fillers, Wear your striped sweater with shorts and pull an oversized jacket over it. Slip into a pair of stockings, boots, and minimal accessories to complete this chic on-the-go look.
