It’s usually around this time of year when we see the high street desperately trying to shift from gloomy winter warmers, to a lighter and brighter spring look. And typically this is usually cue for the humble stripe to make an entrance, often manifesting itself in the form of the classic nautical stripe, and not-forgetting the obligatory Breton stripy jumper – a familiar sight spotted at Saturday farmers market everywhere…

But, good news for lovers of this hooped pattern variety – the stripe is back BIG time this season, and in more elaborate guises from: Humbug to contrasting colour block stripes. Check out our selection of striped jumpers ready for the picking.

Style Safari: ASOS’s stripey jumper £22

By Stefano on January 3rd, 2013

Want to look like Brian Jones in the mid 60s. Well personally I’d have trouble growing out a shaggy mop of blonde hair, but I can at least get the stripey jumper. It appears that Rugby style stripey sweaters are making a bit of a comeback with several stores including Gap offering them (and they are in the sale too).

Now ASOS has just unveiled its take on the classic . This is a 100% cotton block stripe crew neck in navy and white that comes with this season’s must-have elbow patches (can’t believe I have just written that). It retails very cheaply at £22.

If that’s no good and you want something more 60s then Atom Retro has a good selection too.
