TREND: Bold in Breton Stripes

While nautical looks during the summer are nothing new, I love how this Fashionista wears classic Breton stripes with bold orange accessories. Once the navy uniform of sailors in the Brittany region of France, Breton Stripes are now making a comeback this summer after being seen on the runways of Karen Walker, Erin Wasson x RVCA, and Balmain.

Spotted looking stylish outside a subway station, this Fashionista modernizes the French horizontal stripes with a navy and white knit minidress, bright orange perforated bag, an orange simple stone necklace, white leather boots with cut-out designs, and brown sunglasses. The rope tie detail at the natural waist plays up the seaside look while making horizontal stripes flattering. The bright orange adds a modern look, and the cut-out boots offer a change from traditional sandals or flip flops. When wearing Breton stripes, I suggest picking clothes that suit your figure, and pairing with sunglasses and a large canvas tote bag for a summery carefree look.
