When we think of stripes, we tend to think of summer, boats, the French coast, Bretons, you get the idea. But why? Summer doesn’t have the ownership to striped clothes, you know.
Autumn colours look fab, striped. So, earn your winter stripes (see what we did there?!), with these, er, winter stripes!
We are in love with the high-necked, striped kimono-sleeved top (£42) from Oasis @ Debenhams. In the same mustard, burgundy and blue colour palette, Oasis have a gorgeous 70s inspired shirt dress (£45) and a pretty tube dress (£40).
H&M+’s winter stripes come in the shape of a fantastic shift dress (£19.99). This dress makes all the statement you need. BHS’s black and cream winter stripes dress (£32) has a clever, flattering twist at the waist. GAP’s burgundy and blue striped skater dress is subtle and simple (£49.95) and their boat-neck sweater in ochre and black (£39.95) is a great winter stripes alternative.
Faith @ Debenhams’ clutch bag (£25) fulfills our winter stripes brief, as do JOY’s two striped skirts – choose from a subtle stripe pencil skirt (£39) or a flared striped mini (£39).
There is nothing subtle at all about New Look’s orange, black and white chevron striped dress (£22.99). Also at New Look, embrace the lurex trend for this party season with their striped high-neck sleeveless shell top (£tbc). Team it with H&M’s striped scuba full midi skirt (£39.99) for a super cool winter stripes look.
New Look’s striped faux fur stole (£24.99) is essential winter wear, right? But any of these will earn you your (winter) stripes!
