During the warmer months, stripes were a big hit. But don’t sequester them to the back of your closet just yet – here’s how to transition your stripes so they work all winter long.


  1. Add some pattern to your favorite cardigan or V-neck sweater with a striped tie for a warm, office-ready look.
  2. Get your striped summer sweater out from the closet and add a solid coat or quilted vest to break up the bold pattern.
  3. Look to striped T-shirts as layering pieces and let them peek through your solid V-neck sweater. This look is great for an errand run.
