Uniforme Francais – The Breton Stripe

Uniforme Francais!

For me a timeless piece that every girl (and boy) should have in her wardrobe is the Breton stripe top. A favourite that remains strong year after year. This piece can work to suit many any occasion. Don’t be put off by this stripe. If you’re an apple shape try playing around with a loose fit top casually tucked into your bottoms. Pear shape? Try tucking into a full skirt and add a heel if you need to elongate your silhouette. Busty? A lower neckline will be more friendly to you. If in doubt, you could always tread carefully and keep it layered! Whatever your need there is a way to work this gem into your wardrobe.

Dress it down or add the layered touch a la Erica Davis.

 

Teamed it with some ripped boyfriend jeans and a classic ballet shoe. Then to take it into night try adding some heels!

 

These looks are a great option for work, simply add a blazer.

 

Can look perfect worn for a night out. I love mixing it with a full midi skirt.

 

Don’t be restricted to the obvious black and white. Boden do a great selection….

 

You will find the Breton stripe has been donned by the chicest women in the past and presently. 

 

 

This item is so versatile it can be worn all year round. Love this stripe dress with the leather patch pockets for summer…casual and chic.

Here are a few more looks I’m currently lusting…

 

The timeless classic Breton Stripe is always a great staple addition to your wardrobe.
