8 of the Best Striped Tops

By Pip Jarvis
23rd Apr 2015

There are certain items of clothing that scream instant chic, making even the ladettes among us look semi-presentable for Sunday roast with the in-laws. Ballet flats, cashmere scarf, crisp white shirt—tick, tick, tick. But, ladies, when it comes to the classics, there are few items we love (and love to wear to death) quite as much as the Breton or striped top.

Rock your stripy lovely with white and you’ll look like you’ve just stepped off Yeezy’s yacht, or with skinny denims and studded biker for laidback rock chick styling. Add just-been-kissed red lips and undone locks and people might just think you’re French

Pro-tip: make a handful of striped tops the bread and butter of your wardrobe, and the rest is gravy.


#1 Cosy cashmere 

Stylish AND snuggly, wear this to your ladies’ lunch, the footie, or to console yourself that you don’t have a cat (because, SO SOFT). Sigh.

$388 at Skin and Threads stores including Emporium, and online

# 2 Quirky cool 

Oh, Man Repeller. We heart you so! Wear this ‘Boob Pocket T’ on a movie date for some guaranteed over-the-blouse action.

$150 at Incu and online

# 3 Oh so feminine 

Because you're a lady (and would never crassly draw attention to your lovely lumps). 

$165 at Incu and online

# 4 Boxy 

Good for hiding that 3pm doughnut, team this with a pencil skirt. Which may be a bit snug, following said doughnut.

$129 at Gorman stores and online

# 5 Colour pop

Who says navy and black should get all the air time? Armor Lux, you get us.

$90 at The Standard Store on Gertrude Street, and online

# 6 Attention seeker

It’s never been cooler (or sparklier) to show your aje. This baby is so popular it's sold out—but will be back in store next week!

$190 at Aje stores in South Yarra and Armadale, and online

# 7 Low-key lounger 

Just perfect. Obviously. Plus cheap as chips, so you can also buy the shorts, the bag, the shoes…

$39.95 from Assembly Label online

#8 Navy gazer 

Another bargain basement find—layer up and go.

$39.95 from Assembly Label online.
