If your closet is cluttered with stacks of Saint James-style sailor shirts, you're not alone. We've all been there with you for what feels like forever. While the understated piece is timeless, with stripes, you've got options—go the rugby route, or choose thinner stripes infused with color. Either way, these five interesting takes are worthy of being in rotation alongside your Breton standbys.

  1. Suno Printed Cotton Shirt: Just as light, airy, and comfortable as your favorite pajamas, but suitable for waking hours. Wear this top with fitted jeans, and try a half tuck for some added nonchalance.

  2. Altuzarra Straight Trousers: Hello to you, magic lengthening machines masquerading as pants. Adding volume via a flare will make your upper half appear svelter, and a vertical stripe ups the overall ante. Add a white T-shirt, and you're already out the door.

  3. The North Circular Chunky Wool Beanie: This brand, led by Katherine Poulton and Lily Cole, sources their wool from rescued sheep and enlists a team of UK-based grannies to knit really great stuff. (Not into hats? Check out this snood instead.) And you thought being cute was enough...

  4. Isabel Marant Adil Hooded Striped Wool-Blend Coat: Big stripes, big pockets, and an enormous hood—this coat has Polar Vortex Round II written all over it.

  5. Roksanda Olinda V-Neck Striped Swimsuit : For those lucky few going on a vacation somewhere warm in the foreseeable future, you're welcome. A super well-cut one-piece is the new black.
