How to wear a Breton Three Ways with Lazy Jacks
I love all things nautical... for those of you I that don't know (which would be surprising considering I go on about it aaaalllll the time) we live in North Devon and spend most weekends in Cornwall with Chris' family who live there. We are beach people... I live in Havaianas for 6 months of the year, and boots the other half (anyone else??). So this is why I'm super pleased that the 'Breton,' has had a bit of a come back! 'Breton,' or the 'Breton Stripe,' originated in the 1850s when it was introduced in Brittany as the official Seaman's uniform. (I love a bit of history, me!) They are available all over the place right now, but THIS Breton is my favourite.
It's super soft and comfortable, this Ladies Striped Panel Breton (£35.99) from Lazy Jacks is so lovely to wear. I have styled the Twilight Breton three different ways in this feature to show you how versatile a piece this top can be!
1. Over a shirt with jeans
This fitted shirt, also from Lazy Jacks is the perfect piece to layer with. I don't usually wear shirts, but I really loved the way that it smartened up an everyday outfit worn here with Stratus jeans from Fatface.
2. Layered over a dress
I do this type of thing most often; wear a dress and layer with a top over it. I think this is a great piece to do that with because it isn't too thick but just perfect for a Spring day that isn't too warm. Dress from Joules.
3. with a coat and black jeans
This combo is actually my favourite and I was so please how well the Breton went with my Joules Field Coat. I'm wearing it with comfortably with black jeans on a Saturday which we later spent wandering around Padstow. The stripes give the outfit a bit of a boost and it was perfect for a day by the sea.
Overall I love my Breton and will be wearing it a lot this season. Thanks so much Lazy Jacks! Go grab yours now!
