SMART SPRING STRIPES

Take your style cues from some of the world’s most stylish men and grab a natty striped top

I love the hilarious photo by Robert Doisneau called Les Pains de Picasso, which shows the artist sitting at a rustic table, with bread rolls for fingers and wearing a great Breton top. Also favoured by Marlon Brando and James Dean, the timeless T-shirt is just as relevant today. An uplifting alternative to our favourite plain styles, the classic Breton colours are navy on white, but red, grey marl and indigo all look sharp. Whether you wear it fitted or loose, this lightweight knitted cotton example is fresh when the sun’s out but toasty when it isn’t, making it the perfect versatile layer.
