Get the look: striped sweater and white jeans

Winter truly brings out the casualness in me, and my go-to look most days consists of a sweater, jeans, and sneakers. So it's fitting that this month's most-pinned look from my Outfit Ideas for Ageless Style Pinterest board is just that. Granted, it's a very stylish take on the basics, but it's a totally easy look to re-create, so let's do it.



This look is mostly about the sweater, and finding the perfectly oversized one can be a challenge. I suggest hitting the men's department, then going up an extra size or two in this merino wool Vince sweater, as it's still on the fitted side and you want it extra roomy.


You know I love wearing white jeans in winter, but these are actually an off-white, or winter white if you will, which makes them just that much more unique. My go-to jeans, as regular Cheryl Shops readers know, are Frame Le High Straight, and these are just the right shade (and shape).



Chances are you already have a black tote bag hanging around somewhere in your house, but if not, here's a sturdy, well-priced option in everyday black canvas, by Herschel Supply Co.



I am fairly certain the person in the photo is wearing Vans Sk8-Hi sneakers, but a white pair with a black (or gray?) stripe is nearly impossible to find, so I've linked an all-white version. You could always color in the stripe with a Sharpie!

Love the casual look and that's a great idea to shop the mens section for something a bit more oversized and cosy! :)

Hope that you are having a great week :)

You just can't go wrong with a striped topped and white denim!!! They look great together and are so versatile with other pieces.

Super cute look, Cheryl! I love shopping the men’s department for cozy oversized sweaters. My husband just cleaned out his closet and tossed a bunch of sweaters into the Poshmark pile. I was tempted to keep them all for myself but I resisted because I have too many sweaters already! I did take a Star Wars tee from the pile though! Thanks for linking up!
