A cute Breton striped shirt or jumper is a classic. However, I do find that the standard black and white stripe is a bit clichéd and looks a bit like it ought to be paired with a beret and a necklace of onions. So it's often good to go for something a little different, in varying colours, like this Jaeger jumper available through John Lewis's clearance offers. I love the sparkly, metallic stripes which are quirky and attractive - but not too obtrusive. I'd wear it with skinny jeans, a scarf and flat pumps for a chic, Parisian look (without any onions or berets!) but it could be smartened up with a blouse underneath and skirt. Still available in all sizes (small to extra large), it's been reduced from £120 to £75.
