The Breton Stripe Top

Your wardrobe isn’t truly complete without a Breton top. Worn traditionally by the French Navy but made famous by no other than Coco Chanel, this simple top will never go out of style. I’m a bit of a sucker for collecting Breton’s and as soon as the sun starts shining they all come out, from classic navy or red to updated with ruffles and bows- chic and versatile.

Here are seven Breton stripe tops your wardrobe needs right now so you can Chan(n)el your Parisian cool.

St James Meridame Striped Breton Top Β£65– Depuis 1889 in Normandy- The OG of Breton Tops, I picked one up in Paris a few years ago and love the story behind the company and quality of the fabric.

Boden Olive Top Β£35 – Classic navy and ecru colours updated with ruffles for weekend fun.

Comme des GarΓ§ons Lilac Long Sleeved Tee Β£84– The perfect colour for this season with the iconic heart motif, also available in red, navy green and yellow.
