Breton Stripes, French Style

j crew, breton stripes, vicki archer

Breton stripes, very French and very popular right now.

I have seen them worn under every layer possible this winter; fur coats, faux coats, parkas and tailored jackets. Under cardigans, over tee shirts; peeping out or on show. Breton stripes on their own or as an accessory.

Breton stripes never one go out of style… xv

Vicki, stripes are part of my wardrobe year round because of my layering, how great under a navy jacket! Have a fabulous weekend!

Oh, Sweetie… I bought a Breton striped long-sleeved tee a couple months ago, and it is hanging in my computer room closet (where I store my off-season clothes). I have to open the door to it every day, and when I see it hanging there, I sigh and moan and wish for Spring to hurry up and get here!


Wear it underneath your other layers, Mimi.. they look great with a v neck pullover over the top or a buttonup sweater…


Thank you for your post, Mimi! My Breton stripe is in my off season closet, too. Thank you Vicki for your reply! I am pulling out tonight!


I was just wondering why you don’t show the pictures of all the beautiful clothes you recommend? Is there a reason?


I try and find the same image but the problem is that often they aren’t that good, poor quality… and I don’t always have the time to take my own photos… :)
and I am not that fond of my own selfies… ;)

This is such a fun look, so french! I’ve never been able to pull off this style of shirt. It does look very chic!
Happy weekend, Vicki!

PS-just posted on my ‘revealing’ spa experience in Spain. Would love to have some of my European friends weigh in on what feels so awkward to some of us Americans ;).


To heck with the stripes — baby goat!!! I thought it was a puppy at first, until I looked more closely and saw the little hooves. How sweet. [No, no, not this page — the picture in the email with the seated model.]
