The number of striped tops I have in my wardrobe is a little bit crazy. I don’t know what it is about stripes, but I love them! Pastel stripes, rainbow stripes, Breton stripes. You name it, I’ve got it! Given that it’s a pattern that I wear on the reg, it only makes sense to share how I style them! I’m always on the lookout for cute stripes, and they go with so much! I have a lot of different patterns in my closet, and I do love them all. Time and time again though, stripes are where my heart truly lies!
Look 1: Flatter with Florals
When I said breton tops go with everything, I meant anything! I love mixing patterns, and you’ll regularly see me wearing stripes with leopard print or stripes with florals. I fell in love with these super cute bottoms, and knew that one of the ways I’d be wearing them was with a breton! I’d say, flowy and wide leg is super flattering, so aim for that! Don’t worry about if colors are similar, or the size of the pattern either! The florals will stand out and compliment your stripes!
Look 2: Keep It Classic
The most common way I wear my Bretons (especially all year round) is tucked into a pair of jeans. It’s just such a classic look! I’ve got a whole pinterest board dedicated to styling stripes, and I’m pretty sure 90% of it is people paring stripes with denim. What’s great is that you can mix up what kind of jeans you’re wearing and it still works! Breton with some wide leg jeans? Great! Paired with a cute pair of dungarees? Even better! If it ain’t broke, keep wearing it!
Look 3: Match with a Midi
A breton top tucked into a midi skirt is a surefire way to look totally adorable! Bonus points if your skirt is a pastel color! I mean, I am a sucker for pastels, really! Any midi skirt will do, whether an A-Line cute, a scuba skirt, pleated or bias. Paired with some stripes, and you’ll wear this look over and over again! I’ve paired this top with just about every skirt I own at some point!
You can rest assured that I’ll be rocking some variation of these outfits all year long. There is just something so classic about a Breton top! Hard to go wrong, really! Stripes in general are great, and worth adding to your wardrobe!
