The Perfect Edit – Spring stripes

Images from Pinterest

There is something very quintessentially Spring about stripes. Throw a striped top on with your jeans, add a leather jacket/ trench/ khaki shacket .. any layer really! And you are Spring ready.

The classic Breton Tee is a wardrobe essential, with it’s chic french roots, it’s always in fashion. I like to add a new one to my collection every year. My advice is to buy quality cotton, and a good standard fit, as they really will last you years, as they never go out of style.

I bought my absolute favourite Breton Tee from Topshop Unique years ago, with a staff discount at the time I must confess, as it was more than I’d usually pay for a t- shirt. But I looked at it and knew I’d be wearing for years ! And nearly 6 years on I still love it.

Here is my edit of the best striped tops available now on the high street. Starting with the Breton style Tee.

I will say this is a popular item to buy at the moment, when working on this blog this week I’ve found other styles but they have since sold out, and I like to feature items that are in stock at the time of it going live on my website. So if you like then add to basket!
