How many stripes are too many? If there’s one item on my go-to rotation when I’m stuck for something to wear, it’s a striped knit. Offering every bit of comfort and classic, chic vibes, it’s no wonder the striped jumper is having an extended moment.

A hero purchase of the highest regard, the striped jumper just makes sense, ensuring an elevated outfit every time, even if it’s just a simple jumper and jeans outfit. But there are many ways to wear the striped jumper making it a sensible, practical, and altogether stylish purchase that you’ll be able to pull out of your wardrobe for years to come – what more could you want?

Try it slipped over a satin, silky skirt, worn with wide-leg trousers for all the French girl vibes, or how about layered over a crisp white shirt and longline shorts for a perfect transitional outfit?


In 2021, & Other Stories striped knit, which sold out on repeat, was heralded as the year’s most wanted item, sitting alongside desired designer pieces. I, of course, had to invest, hunting down the striped knit in its two colour ways, and the good news is it’s back again this season, as well as gorgeous options across all high-street stores so you can get your striped knit fix.

The demand for the stripe knit continues well in 2022, and with autumn around the corner, the demand for the knit will only get stronger. So if you want to get ahead for one of the essential wardrobe pieces for the colder months, now is your chance to snap up a striped knit.
