The Never-Date Dress You’ll L.O.V.E

As far as prints go, none have proved more stylish than the mighty Breton stripe. Beloved by those irritatingly perfect French girls who take every fashion trend in their stride, the simple motif has cemented itself as the ultimate wardrobe staple in top form, having become an off-duty way of life for most.

Impossible to own just one (at last count we were into the dozens), the Breton top has come to our sartorial rescue more times than we can count, so you can imagine just how excited we were to discover a totally new way to wear it — in dress form!
