Spring Trend 2010: Breton Stripes


Breton stripes may have been the French Navy’s standard uniform back in the 19th century, but today they are a wardrobe staple – especially for spring! A fresh and fun pattern that evokes a sense of lightness and casual confidence, stripes are on our must have list.

Totally inspired by the fabulous fashion blogger, The Glamourai, stripes are coming back avec force! The striped mini dress is the perfect poolside throw-on layer, or simple outfit for a daytime rendezvous. Samantha Pleet makes a long sleeve version that is perfect for transitioning seasons, while Howies offers a summertime signature dress.

Just as the navy’s uniform allowed an overboard sailor to be spotted more easily, stripes are sure to attract a second glance wherever you go!
