As autumn beckons we can’t help but get excited about transeasonal dressing. Goodbye thin strappy dresses and sandals; hello chunky boots and jumper season.
One particular micro-trend that has caught our eye lately is the striped half zip jumper. Seen on the (very stylish) likes of Jessica Skye, Katherine Ormerod and others, knits with a halfway zip are the perfect layering piece for now. Because of the zip, you can show off a shirt or blouse underneath or perfectly frame a necklace, but when a chill hits, you can simply zip it all the way up to the top for a cosier vibe. It could also be layered underneath an oversized blazer, à la @huesofwhite, proving the styling options are endless.
Add in some graphic stripes, a timeless pattern that can give chic Parisian vibes when in horizontal slashes of navy and white, and you’ve got yourself a winner. Cult London brand KITRI has a few varieties at the moment, including a graphic red and pink version, a colour combination that feels very now.
Meanwhile, Mango also has a couple stylish and affordable options up for grabs, including a sleeveless one which ticks two trend boxes in one – score.
We’ve rounded up 7 of the best striped half zip jumpers on the high street to snap up now and wear all autumn – and winter – long.

Go classic with Baujken’s navy and white number. It’s made from 50 per cent merino wool, 50 per cent Newlife™ – a yarn engineered from plastic bottles.
KITRI’s green and white vertical stripes are giving us subtle football shirt vibes, while the oversized popped collar ups the drama.
Just two stripes is all it takes to turn this Mango jumper from ‘meh’ to ‘yes!’
A beige trim on the hems here adds another element to this stripy jumper.
Sleeveless knits are in, half zip jumpers are in, so this Mango knit is ticking all our boxes.
Whoever said red and pink don’t go? We can’t stop lusting after this show-stopping number.
While missing the zip, this & Other Stories jumper (as worn by Katherine Ormerod, above), still gives the same open collar vibe.
