Because stripes are fresh, clean and timeless. They can break up a plain, tonal outfit or work back against other prints and colours - definitely my go to in those "what the hell to wear" meltdowns.
Evocative of crisp pajamas, these obviously don't need to necessarily be paired together. I love the idea of these pants with a big soft mohair jersey.
Saint James Striped Long-Sleeve
You can't really go past the iconic St James breton. A good dense cotton knit that will last forever and a broad variety of colour ways - $125 at The Department Store and Playpark By Karen Walker.
I like the red and cream of this and the sheer knit - Great with blue denim. £28.00.
The bold, singular stripe of this is awesome - and a cool interpretation of such a traditional garment (without looking too literal). Great collar too. £105.41
A simple concept (striped knit pencil skirt) is taken above and beyond with luxurious cashmere. £664.12.
It's sock weather now, and the best are the kind you can show off. £15.81
As nice as knitwear is, sweatshirts are a great deal more hardwearing and less precious.
