There are a few types of bedding that will never go, well, out of style: the crispness of plain cotton sheets; the luxuriousness of silk; the playful but grown-up energy of pinstripes. In fact, stripes of any style — thick, thin, clean, or rustic — will always look handsome on a bedspread. Stripes let you dress up completely neutral bedding to be more interesting and add a little more color while still looking refined. They’re basically your failsafe option when you feel like your bedroom’s decor is becoming a bit too monotone.

Thankfully, just about every bedding brand out there has several striped options to choose from. Whether you like patterns with high-contrast or subtle color schemes, stripes in a classic narrow breton width or a bolder cabana style, or something more lively with alternating stripe sizes and colors, there is a sheet set out there just for you. Check out our favorite striped bedding sets to find the one that’s perfect for your home.

After our commerce director Mark tested these cooling eucalyptus sheets at his home, they became his solution to struggling to fall asleep on hot summer nights. Now they're available in pink, gray, and blue stripe options to add a little variety to your bedspread. Just be sure to wash them before using them because that helps the eucalyptus fabric become softer and sturdier.

Boll & Branch

Boll & Branch likens the texture of their cotton percale fabric to a "crisp button down shirt," although we'd say these sheets are even more comfortable and cozy to wrap yourself up in. The double-line style of the pinstripes is subtle but will go a long way toward elevating your entire bedroom. See why Boll & Branch made our Best Organic Cotton Sheets List.

Serena & Lily
was $378.00

The Company Store

The great thing about getting a patterned comforter is that it won't look out of place whether you choose to use it with or without a duvet cover. This striped model contains recycled polyester fiber fill and is currently on sale in full, queen, and king sizes.

The Citizenry
was $615.00

Upgrade your entire bed in one fell swoop with this complete linen bedding set that includes a duvet cover, four pillowcases, and both flat and fitted sheets. The Citizenry is known for sourcing exceptional textiles (the linen in these sheets was woven in Portugal's oldest family-owned mill) and paying workers fair wages, so the price reflects those values. This extra-narrow stripe pattern also hides any wear extremely well. Read more about them in our Best Linen Sheets List.

If you or your bedroom have a tendency to overheat, try using a lightweight blanket at night instead of sleeping under a duvet. This elegantly simple cotton blanket is perfect for summer nights and was made at a family-owned textile factory in New England.

West Elm

We love the speckled look that natural flax fabric brings to this striped duvet cover. Linen is a comfortable material to sleep under in both warm and cold weather, so you can keep this cover on your bed year-round. Grab a set of matching pillow shams for $45–$50 extra.

When our former editor Jasmine tried Brooklinen's Core sheets at home, she liked that they made her bed a more cozy place to sleep and found them to get softer — and even more comfortable — after every wash. This breton stripe pattern is timeless and, as a plus, is 10-percent off right now.

L.L. Bean

Egyptian cotton is an ideal choice for bedding because it provides an outstanding combination of strength and softness. Outfit your bed in Mid-Blue or Soft Gray stripes, and if you're not totally happy you have up to an entire year to return your sheet set and get all of your money back.

Garnet Hill

When regular comforters feel too heavy or keep you too warm, a lightweight comforter will give you a better balance of snuggliness and breathability. This playful striped one comes in eight colors — with different sized stripes on each side of the comforter — and can be used on its own or inside a duvet cover.

We write a lot about products for hot sleepers, but sometimes you want your bed to keep you warm, and that's when you reach for flannel. This weighty set is guaranteed to be cozy and comforting all year-round, and the brushed flannel texture naturally reduces pilling (which helps your sheets last longer). See why Coyuchi made our Best Flannel Sheets List.

The Company Store
was $204.00

Because these sheets were made using a dobby weaving technique, the stripes are essentially woven into the fabric. That gives them a more subtle appearance and the characteristic sheen (that also looks quite fancy).

14 / 14

Woven from 100-percent flax fibers, these linen sheets are wonderfully breathable and soft. The widely-spaced stripes are a nice change from more common patterns, and the whole set is OEKO-TEX® certified so the fabric is free from harmful manufacturing chemicals.
