    From the wardrobes of editors and models to businesswomen and yummy mummies, the humble stripe shirt is one of those classic, universally flattering items that works for every kind of wardrobe.

    Whether you opt for a silky number to work day to night, or favour a colourful number to wear over a roll neck jumper in the winter and then over a bikini on beach come summer, the styling possibilities are endless.

    And what’s even better, is their price. Thanks to amazing high street offerings and attainable designer numbers around the £200 mark, they’re an affordable way to instantly refresh any look. Put simply, they’re the wardrobe staple that just keeps on giving.

    And this season, thanks to cut-out details, lace inserts and mis-matched prints, they’ve had a revival. Chic shirts have long been an easy wardrobe staple (we can’t get enough of the throw-on potential) but for SS16, there’s more choice than ever before. Not as girly as florals and not as playful as polka dots, the striped shirt is the look of choice for spring and summer.

    From tailored silk options for the office, to washed,relaxed cotton styles for the weekend, there is a striped shirt out there for every occasion.
