Striped shirts are the staple to see you through summer

The striped shirt, an everlasting wardrobe staple, is a key wardrobe trans-seasonal essential that will ease you back into real clothes.

Striped shirts are the staple to see you through summer

Are you rethinking your wardrobe, now that you’ve bought nothing glitzy in a year?

This long in, you’ve figured out the essential items that make up your wardrobe. The mom jeans you now live in that have dumped skinny jeans from your life eternally. That one jumper you wear most days that you should have bought in every colour. You know the key pieces that make up what you really wear on a daily basis, so hopefully, in the future, you’ll be less likely to grab for the trend pieces and to find the classics that you’ll wear again and again.

One of those classics you’ll revisit season after season is the striped shirt, an easy to throw-on staple that always makes you feel polished.

In winter, you’ll wear it with trousers and jeans, with slip dresses and polo necks underneath. For now, wear it with your leggings, then tuck it in your shorts and midi skirts come summery days. Right now, you’ll find striped shirts in every colour, from luxury brands and high street havens, in basic, timeless styles and with modern details like oversized collars and puffy sleeves. Shop our edit of the best striped shirts available now below.
