Hey Sailor!

Yes, breton tops are ubiquitous the minute Spring arrives. But they're just so darn cute. And who doesn't want to look a bit more like A bout de souffle era Jean Seberg?The problem is trying to decide on which one to get, as the stores are flooded with various styles. Here are some of my favourites:

This one from Pure, of course, cashmere. And I like that the white stripes are super thin. Horizontal stripes are tricky to pull off if you're even remotely wide anywhere, but stripes of varying widths and that wide band at the bottom of the top can be quite flattering.I love the cowl neck feature on this version by Moschino Cheap and Chic at Net-a-Porter.Boden has a great, long sleeve t-shirt version - I love the wee buttons on the neck. I also like the knitted one Boden does with 3/4 length sleeves. (edit: 6 years after this was posted, Boden has contacted me to ask me to remove this link. I have also removed the image to avoid possible future unpleasantness.)

This one by Sessun is described as a cape. I love the kangaroo pocket.I like my tops long, so this simple version by ASOS fits the bill.This one by Sibling (as seen on Style Bubble Susie) is probably my favourite. I love the interstarsia skull.Eco chic brand Ascension has one with a great shape and front pockets.This Maje at Net-a-Porter top is another favourite of mine. It's great because it's bretony and lacy: two trends for the price of one.For something a bit different, there are many different cardigan's with navy stripes. The one that stands out most to me is this Pringle version at My Wardrobe, with its adorable pointel texture.If you like structure, but not too much structure, Steven Alan does a linen one, which is being sold at Net-a-Porter.This one by Calvin Klein at the Outnet really stretches the breton designation, but I love the sheerness of it, so I thought I'd throw it in. If you like it too, be quick, because things sell out quickly at the Outnet. Blink and it will be gone.
