The striped top truly is a perennial classic. Timeless, elegant, and possible to style in an almost infinite number of ways, the breton comes back year after year for good reason.
I’m a big fan of both the new season stripe tops from Kettlewell. They tick all the boxes for a truly wearable summer classic – not too short, not too clingy, available in two flattering necklines and a colour to suit everyone.
Just in case you need more reasons to install one (or two. Or three) in your wardrobe, here’s my favourite styling solutions:
Add a pop of red to your version of the classic blue and white for instant Parisian chic, with a Florence Infinity Scarf. Neat white sneakers make this look stylish but totally wearable.
Pair your 3/4 sleeve breton with a flippy Audrey skirt for classy but comfortable sightseeing attire.
TRAVEL IN COMFORT
Add a splash of colour to a comfy travel outfit with a cotton cashmere cardigan layered on top of a short sleeved stripe t-shirt and a pair of jersey trousers. And if you’re going for capsule wardrobe packing, you can use the same sneakers as your classic Parisian look!
Relaxed short sleeve t-shirt turns simple denim shorts and a sunhat into a summer holiday outfit fit for every destination, from Cornwall to Corsica. Simple metallic flip flops in your best shade will complete the laid back look. Styled here with a tassel necklace and a willow scarf.
