3 Ways to Layer a Striped Top in the Winter

A striped top is a must in any wardrobe. It is a great layering piece that adds interest no matter the season– a striped tank in the summer, tee in the spring, and long sleeve in the fall & winter. I think the most versatile colors are black (or dark navy!) and white but you could choose whatever colors go best with your wardrobe. I picked up this one at Walmart & I think it is all sold out at this point, but I will link similar options as a striped long sleeve top is fairly easy to find.

I will be layering this striped top three different ways but keeping the base the same–striped top, straight leg jeans, & sock booties.

As always, I will link the items I am wearing (or similar if unavailable!) using affiliate links. This means I get a small commission if you choose to shop using my links & it will be no additional cost to you. Thanks!

This first look is certainly “on-trend”–layering using a shirt jacket, or shacket, as the kids are calling them these days. I really love the shacket trend because I live in Northern NY where it is COLD, so an extra warm layer that is also cute works great! This one is from Amazon and has been one of my favorite shackets to style all winter long!

This second look has a crew neck sweatshirt layered over the striped top. It’s comfy, it’s cute, it’s casual. What more could you want?

The third look is a classic–a cardigan and stripes is a tale as old as time. I love a good cardigan outfit & even better if it’s neutral tones. Mine is old, but I will try to find similar.

Which look is your favorite? Do you like to layer or is it too bulky for you?
