The Wardrobe Edit: Breton Stripes

Who doesn’t love a breton stripe? Blue, black, red… a breton stripe top is an essential wardrobe staple, it is so easy to wear dressed down or styled up. It is also a piece that’s definitely worth investing in as a good cut and a heavy fabric make all the difference. Saying that my wardrobe consists of high-end and budget, including a new Zara t-shirt material version you can get here. But my absolute favourite is an old Gant heavy cotton version that rolls at the sleeves ‘just-so’. This is their current version here and the Jcrew versions were amazing but sold out here maybe you can find one on eBay – but this version here is gorgeous too. Boden also does a great version here but I would definitely by a size or two up to get the oversized look and roll up those sleeves.

I love to wear mine with leopard print, there’s something about the two prints clashing that gives the stripes more of an edge. Mix with leather, khaki or a bright blue denim to really rock the look! Hope the inspo images below will help with the styling…
