There are few things on this planet, clothing-wise, that are quite as useful as a Breton top. This striped wonder is a basic that should be in every woman’s wardrobe, no matter her age or job description. Made famous by the likes of Brigitte Bardot, Françoise Hardy and Pablo Picasso, no one can claim immunity to that fine French stripe. Styling it isn’t difficult in the slightest – wear it with a pair of jeans, obviously. However we thought this style sheet should highlight the versatility of the Breton and hopefully make you fall in love with it all over again.
