I think a good Breton Top is on most peoples No.1 List in the style stakes. I know personally, myself, I think I have worn some form of Breton Top most of my life! Stripes for a fact can be hard to pull off with especially horizontal stripes. It can make you look heavier than you really are, but I couldn’t give a monkeys uncle about that. Fashion rules sometimes just have to be ignored. Especially if you have a penchant for all things nautical!!. So let me tell you about this Breton Top I picked up recently from La Redoute. Now if you are a avid viewer of our YouTube channel (Click Here to have a gander) then its no secret that I have a Love Hate Relationship. I wont bore you with the details but lets just say items arrived SOOO late and I find the delivery absolutely rubbish. I failed to see in this day and age why items should need to take 7-10 working days to be delivered!! Who has time for that. Saying that, you can not deny the quality and uniqueness of their clothing. For me I can forgive rubbish delivery and just get over myself enough to place a order or two and just cultivate some patience while I eagerly wait by the door for said items.
This Breton top has bought much joy to me, as the softest of the material and cute little satin bow detail on the back just ticks all the boxes for me. As I was trying to channel my inner French Madam Look, I teamed it with my 7 For All Mankind Jeans and Marks and Spencer Metallic Backless Loafers for a laid back look. For added warmth to keep the chill off my kidneys I opted for my All Saints The Bales Leather Jacket just adds the je sais que for me.
