What’s better than a Breton top? A Breton top designed by Wardrobe ICONS. We may be a little biased, but our new exclusive with sustainable knitwear brand Charl tops the list when it comes to nautical stripes. A reinterpretation of the traditional fisherman’s gansey, the Louisa knit has a cropped length that’s perfect for tucking into waistbands without bulk. The three-quarter-length sleeves hit just so on the elbow and can be pushed up to create a feminine puff. From the luxe ribbed detailing to the high crew-neck, every element has been designed to make it the ultimate addition to your spring wardrobe. Here are just four ways to style it.
Breton stripes and denim are a match made in heaven, especially when the denim is an indigo midi skirt. Play up the ’70s feel with vintage-inspired accessories and a flash of paisley print.
For a pulled-together, everyday look, team your nautical knit with a pair of wide-leg chinos. Buckled flats and a denim jacket make for on-the-go ease, while a pop of red adds elevation.
Give a nod to the origins of a Breton by wearing it with leather trousers and channelling effortless French chic. Introduce an unexpected twist with clashing polka dots and finish with the pièce de résistance – dark sunglasses.
The simplicity of a utilitarian skirt is the perfect backdrop to let classic stripes sing. Tonal accessories and a contemporary pearl choker give polish to the work-to-weekend look.
