Breton Skirts


The easy way to recreate French style, we can’t get enough of the Breton stripe. If your wardrobe’s already seething with marinière tops, jumpers and knits, focus instead on your bottom half, which offers a fresher way to work that elusive je ne sais quoi into your getup.

Pick up a purse-palatable option on the high street – Gap, H&M and Topshop have some stellar stripes in every skirt shape from maxi to mini to pencil, while if you’ve recently had your pay day, Valentino’s flared number is an investment-worthy opportunity if ever we saw one. Combine yours with an oversized knit, marl tee and biker jacket or go matchy-matchy with a co-ord crop top for Parisian chic made easy.
