Topshop Unique set the ball rolling with a load’a statement-making stripes on their AW17 catwalk and since then, it’s only got bigger. Street stylers, celebs, *ahem* Look staff *ahem* – they’re all wearing it, and now (hurrah for the high street!) you can too. Stick to monochrome for a sophisticated take on the trend, or brave a bolder hue like Zara’s pink backpack and take centre stage. Either way, it’s hard to resist this jungle fever.
