Get on Breton

Jeans: H&M. Breton Top: Petit Bateau.
Sandals: Saint Laurent.

This look is part of my column in the November issue of Glamour magazine UK. I styled 10 pieces into 30 different looks. Limiting myself to only 10 pieces really taught me the value of investing in timeless items with long term value. 

Breton stripes have been in style since Coco Chanel used them in her nautical collection in 1917 and they're still going strong today.

  17. As a Frenchie, and a Petit Bateau fan, I couldn't agree more! We're far from the baguette under the arm/stripy top/poodle cliché, but most women have been investing in a nice Breton top over the last few years, it's a classic.
