The Breton stripe is one of the hardest working patterns in your wardrobe as it is so versatile. This post would be very short if I was to suggest wearing stripes with everything (because you know, I think that you could!). Here are a few styling ideas for wearing the heroic Breton stripe…
- Layer the top under a suit for a relaxed approach to tailoring. Add a pair of Jack Purcell plimsolls in summer to take you from day to night without compromising on looking slick. Breton stripe top – A.P.C, Suit – Reiss, Plimsolls – Jack Purcell.
- Seamlessly step into summer with this easy go-to outfit. Add a light-wash denim jacket, stone coloured chinos and a pair of contrast colour desert boots for a pop of colour. Choosing an everyday outfit has never been so easy! Breton stripe top – A.P.C, Denim jacket – Saturdays NYC, Chinos – Gant Rugger, Desert boots – Clarks, Braided belt – J.Crew
- Opt for a distinctively utilitarian look and toughen things up a bit by wearing the stripe top with a green work wear jacket, buckle boots and tie a well-worn bandana for a clash of textures. The perfectly polished ‘just threw this on’ look. Breton stripe top – A.P.C, Skinny Jeans – ACNE Studios, Suede buckle boots – Belstaff, Bandana – RRL
