It seems to me that in the current changeable weather conditions, rain then sun then humidity then chilling temperatures, there’s an item of clothing that works no matter what the weather throws at us. The Breton top.
For a while now, convinced of its versatility (just look at the examples above) I’ve been looking for a new addition to my portfolio of stripes. I already have a coral and cream wide striped loose tee, but now I’d really like a navy version. Finding a quality fabric however that isn’t paper thin and see through is another matter.
After looking a little further than the high street and at more ‘grown up’ brands however, I think I might be onto a few winners. I’m particularly loving the unusual neckline and combination of colours in the Petite Bateau version and the heavier weight jersey from Boden.
Have you found the perfect Breton yet and have you (like me) been wearing yours none stop?
