This rugby stripe sweater outfit is one of those looks you can play with and wear for a variety of occasions, from casual to professional. Here, I’m styling it for a workwear wardrobe look.
Do you have separate wardrobes? One for work, one for casual, and one for more formal occasions? I used to do the same. I reached for the same old things time and time again for casual wear, grabbing an old favorite after work or for the weekend. Over time, I discovered that switching out pieces from my work outfits allowed me to look dress more fashionably in casual wear and increased the versatility of my wardrobe. One example is this rugby stripe sweater outfit, that I wear to work or with jeans for a casual affair.
The rugby pattern is borrowed from shirts worn by rugby players. It’s defined as a traditional design of a rugby shirt consisting of five or six horizontal stripes or “hoops” in alternating colors. The wider “awning” stripe differs from a traditional narrow stripe and often has two or more colors in the stripes.
Rugby stripes have become pretty mainstream in fashion, as you can see from this cute striped sweater outfit.
The Stripe Sweater Outfit for Work
Rugby sweaters are a perfect choice for fall wear and a short sleeve sweater is especially wearable. You can style one for work under a blazer and with jeans or cords and a fleece jacket for a casual night out.
