THE BEST OF BRITISH
Style’s most fashionable ABCs – Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot and Coco Chanel – were all fans of the Breton top, and it’s still as popular today. Here’s how to wear it like the French
Imoved to Paris for a year when I was 20, which was a coming of age, not just for me, but my wardrobe too. I quickly learned how to dress à la Française, centring every outfit on a navy or black palette with one perennial piece in the mix: the Breton top. It’s a true style hero, and many women today, myself included, have several variations in their wardrobe. This Best of British knitted wool version is a standout choice with its wide boat neck and button detail on the shoulder. Wear it with tailored trousers and escarpins (heeled courts) for a polished take, or mix it up with a pleated skirt and fresh white trainers for a modern spin.
