These Timeless Sweaters Never Go Out of Style

They're a classic for a reason.

I’ve always been lukewarm towards jumpers. Yes, they’re practical – but I can’t say that’s been at the top of my priorities when it comes to fashion.

But as I’ve been learning more about building a capsule wardrobe, I’m discovering why classic pieces such as Breton striped jumpers become wardrobe staples.

They’ve been well-loved for decades now. Back in the 50s, film stars such as Audrey Hepburn and Brigitte Bardot sparked the trend but even to this day they’re still firm favourites in our wardrobes.

I don’t think I’ll be going out on a limb when I say it’s because of their versatility. You can pair them with just about anything and achieve a polished look almost effortlessly.

While older styles were more fitted, they’re now casual and oversized to achieve a more relaxed silhouette.

Speaking of what’s on the market right now, I’ve found a few that are hard to resist. 

Arket’s Breton striped jumpers constantly sold out last season, but you can get your hands on one right now. Instead of the typical black and white colourway, my pick is in white and red, complete with a cute collar.

If you like something that’s more on the traditional side, Jigsaw, H&M and Arket have options in white and navy.

Here’s the complete list of the best Breton striped jumpers you can buy right now.
