Each season, an item of clothing dominatesthe style set’s wardrobes – and every autumn, it’s the turn of Arket’s Insta-famous Breton jumper.

Achieving viral-fame after its debut, the coveted transitional piece has scarcely stayed in stock since. Now, it’s back for autumn 2023 – and it’s gone straight to the top of our wishlists.

Whether channeling French “It-girl” style and teaming the sweater with straight leg jeans, throwing on over a midi skirt or layering with a dress, there are endless ways to style the autumn staple.

Just in time for cool weather dressing, the coveted sweater is now back in the white and black striped style alongside three other striped variations. If your transitional wardrobe is lusting after the Breton piece, run, don’t walk, to pick up Arket’s viral striped jumper.

The black and off-white version of Arket’s Breton jumper, the Scandi label’s signature jumper proved a runaway-success upon its debut. Owing to its Parisian-style Breton finish, statement wide open collar and flattering V-neckline, it’s lauded for its effortlessly chic design – helping you instantly look put together with minimal effort.

Made from organic cotton, the super-soft jumper is knitted in a Milano rib style that’s breathable yet insulating enough to keep you warm during the cooler months – cementing its status as the perfect transitional piece.
