I don’t always agree with Spongebob Squarepants’ style choices, but it’s hard to suggest his love for striped sweaters is anything but spot-on. Sartorial opinions of a cartoon character aside, though, we can all appreciate a good sweater. I mean, you can wear them most months out of the year—they come in all different weights so you can adjust your sweaters to the temperature. And, they’re just damn cute! The best time to wear a striped sweater really is all the time. (Well, maybe not mid-August, but ya know. *Shrug*)
OK, so the more I thought about it, the more I realized most of my sweaters are so plain. This can be helpful when you want to boast some crazy and colorful accessories, but come on. I realized I needed to diversity my sweater collection. Enter: stripes. So many stripes. Striped sweaters are the perfect way to keep cozy (everything I love about sweaters) while switching it up a little from the classic oversized one-color sweater sacks that you (OK, I’m really just talking about myself here) tend to wear.
Winter, spring, fall—you can’t go wrong with a cute-ass striped sweater, and I found 33 that are truly perfect for any occasion. Doesn’t matter if you like bold colors or wearing classic black and white, there’s a striped sweater with your name on it. It’s officially time to stock up on this trend that—I hope—will never go out of style.
