The 3 Perfect High-Street Striped Jumpers That Are Destined to Sell Out

Combining summer’s penchant for all things nautical with winter's demand for chic knits, the Breton jumper was born, destined to thrive as a trans-seasonal favourite forever more. After Totême's perfect striped jumper stole our hearts in 2019, we've remained rather infatuated by the chic, classic knit, returning to the style every autumn like clockwork.

Since then, we've taken to shopping the style from across the high street, in search of worthy rivals to Totême's flawless version. And I must say, there are some very compelling styles coming in hot from our favourite high-street retailers.

Who Who Wear UK affiliate editor Emily Dawes wears H&M's Turtleneck Jumper, £38.

Across the board, affordable heroes such as H&M& Other Stories and ARKET have experimented with the timeless pattern in a range of cuts and styles to settle on their own stylish versions, and years of experience keeping track of the best striped knits on the market tells us these simple-yet-effective styles won't hang around for long. Perfect for styling with winter's favourite flat shoes—the mary jane—a striped knit looks fabulous with a classic pair of blue jeans, and right at home layered underneath a beige trench. The understated style can be a canvas for accessories just as well as it can be worn perfectly pared-back with black bottoms and a sleek bag. 

Whatever your styling preference, see my top-three high-street striped jumpers below. I've also rounded up my other favourite striped jumpers currently on the high street in case the first three sell out (which they probably will).
