Frenchify Your Friday – Number 26

Breton Top

The end of the week is almost here – which is exciting for me on so many levels – but mostly because it’s time for me to help you Frenchify Your Friday!

And this week I’m recommending you add a little French flavour to your attire in the form of Breton striped top.

First designed for French sailors, this French classic – which was originally named a marinère – never ages.  A Breton top can be worn at any time of the year and looks great on its own or under a jacket.

And a Breton shirt works for everyone – younger or older, male or female – pop on a French styled striped t-shirt and you’re set.

My favourite is white with blue stripes and comfy three-quarter length sleeves. But black stripes or red stripes would work just as well. In fact, I’m tempted to say that stripes of any colour will do the job!

So why not Frenchify Your Friday this week by wearing some stripes. I can almost guarantee someone will compliment you on your French style.

All the best for a fabulous Friday.

Until next time – au revoir.
