just in: the breton

A staple in every girl and guy's closet, the striped Breton shirt. Been searching for one for a long time and I always end up looking for one at Muji. But the fitting is never right (too boxy). I found this in Forever 21. I fell for this one because of the great fit:

There are many different ways to wear a Breton. For my first look, decided to keep it casual paired with a simple denim and sneakers. 

Love Olivia Palermo's take on the Breton

I also love the thoughtful button detail on the forearms.


I was wearing: Breton stripes from Forever 21, skinny jeans Mossimmo (US), Nike shoes.


  1. Love it! Been obsessed with this too lately; although the cheapie Market Market Breton I got tends to focus the eyes on my tummy area (phooey), so I'm on the lookout for a nicer one.

  2. I love stripes and I like Breton! :-)
