Wanted: The Stripe Edit

A striped top is an absolute wardrobe essential. It suits everyone, it’s effortless, it’s reliable and easy to style. It transcend trends and is something I never get tired of wearing. I have had a few stripey tops in my time, infact I probably have about 4-5 sat in my wardrobe right now, but I still find myself looking at all the new colours and designs that come in! Here are a few I’ve been eyeing up recently.

The personalised one

Maison Labiche Long Sleeve Sailor Shirt – €85.00

You’ve probably seen these all over the place at the moment, but as a sucker for anything personalised I couldn’t help but put this one in! You can buy this brand on ASOS with slogans like ‘amour’, ‘cherie’ and ‘blondie’. But if you go on their website there’s an option to add your own embroidery which I absolutely love. It does get a little pricey, but  I’m sure it would be worth every penny.

The twist on a classic


Boden Long Sleeve Breton – £28.00

Boden are a classic British brand who are known for their striped tops. They do all your classic colours but also do a few jazzy ones with glitter polka dots, floral details etc and at the moment they’ve got this black and white stripe with rainbow colours on the sleeves – a great way to add that lil somethin’ somethin’.

The pop of colour

& Other Stories Striped Sweater – £25.00

Other Stories are also great at adding pops of colour to a striped top to make it that little bit different. I love these designs with a contrast rim around the colour. I think they also do one with pink stripes and an orange trim which is just as cute!

The slogan one

Joy Je T’Aime Slogan Tee – £20.00

I haven’t bought any clothes from Joy before but I found this baby through those dangerous Facebook ads that follow you around (it clearly knows me too well). I guess this would be a kind of cheaper alternative to the Maison Labiche one as it has a little Parisian feel and also hits the slogan tee trend right on the head.

Where do you get your striped tops from? Are there any I’m missing from my list?
