Breton edit

It's fair to say a Breton stripe T-shirt is my wardrobe staple. It's also a key piece with the fashion set. Trudi Brewer shares her new season picks and fresh inspiration on how to make it work for you.

As a transition piece in your wardrobe, layering is the way to wear a striped T-shirt. For the weekend with boyfriend jeans or paired with a skirt to add a tomboy touch. It can add interest to a plain sweater or blazer when a flash of the stripe is visible. And can be paired with on-trend yellow, raspberry or pale blue and still give the nod to timeless style.
