I think people typically think of stripes as most appropriate for spring and summer, but I like them all year-round, and especially like them on sweaters, like this one from Allsaints that has a hint of sparkle you can’t really see here.
You don’t necessarily need a quantity of stripes on a sweater: this one, with them just at the waistline, is aces.
Likewise, the one big stripe here is really graphic and appealing.
This half-zip merino wool number is fantastically layer-able.
The pale pink and charcoal grey make this one look like a well-loved vintage find.
Here’s one comes in a ton of colorways, all cute as can be, but I like this one best: so bright and happy.
This pocket pullover has a slightly retro-ish appeal.
And here, from Alex Mill, is a cardigan that couldn’t feel a lot more French.
And while we’re at it, this cashmere turtleneck is pretty French chick too, and the price is unbelievably good.
OK, one more French-looking one, from Madewell.
I am dying for this merino wool polo shirt. I’d layer it over a long-sleeved tee and under a blazer.
The micro-stripes on this mock-neck sweater really pop.
And finally: this bright option looks as easy to throw on as a T-shirt.
