Whenever I find myself in between seasons or looking to refresh my style without spending a fortune I find myself returning to my favorite classic pieces. Breton striped shirts are by far one of my all time favorites for effortless chic dressing. These very "French" stripes never go out of style and spring up almost every year in hundreds of spring/summer collections.
The beauty of the Breton stripe is that it is a unisex look, with appeal for all ages and style orientations. Breton Striped shirts (or dresses) can easily be dressed up...worn with a Chanel jacket perhaps?...or worn with shorts and flip-flops and still look fabulous. I especially love Breton stripes on children and can't wait to get my daughters a new top from Petit Bateau every spring. Petit Bateau, GAP, JCrew, H&M and ASOS all have a beautiful selection of stripes this summer for men, women, children or expecting mothers… By the way, did you know that ASOS and J Crew deliver to Turkey? These are two stores with splendid international shopping services.
Still unsure if these stripes are for you? Check out these looks below and let me know if you too are in love with the Breton Stripe. Coco Chanel, Alexa Chung, Sienna Miller, Picasso, Jean Paul Gaultier, Olivia Palermo, Kate Middleton can't all be wrong, right?
