Breton Stripes

Most of my friends know I’m obsessed with Breton stripe tops – it’s seriously an addiction with my pile of tops growing weekly. They are a wardrobe staple, season after season – from the classic long sleeve to t-shirts and even different colour combinations. I usually buy J.Crew and Saint James but while looking for another new one recently I came across a few other online options.


  1. I love a stripey top too, in fact I've just placed an order for the J Crew drapey striped sailor tee as there's an extra 30% off!
    My favourite stripey top is an old APC one, that has finally reached its limits. Another favourite is a dark blue and white Karen Walker one from 3 years ago, which is still in great shape.

    I love St James ones, but they're usually a bit too big on me. I should probably buy the kids sizes!!

    Have you checked out Rittenhouse? They have some great stripes too.

    1. I'll have to try APC next!

      Yes, St James are big being mostly unisex - even the XS is large but I don't mind for a looser fit. Definitely try the kids as the quality is great and they get softer (better) as you wash them. Also, I find they do shrink a little. Nothing huge, but they do shrink. You could also try the Galathee style as it has 3/4 sleeves so won't swamp you too much.

  2. APC all the way... And also petit bateau..ooh ooh and Cos.
    I love me a stripe! Natch xxx

    1. Another APC recommendation..definitely next on the list.

      New you'd love a stripe too :)

      Also, I got the Zara top!! We will soon have identical wardrobes...not kidding!! x
