Did you know that the Breton shirt was first popularized by the French in 1858 when they made blue and white stripes as part of their navy’s uniforms? Later on, the stripes made their way into new wave films, and it has, since then, caught the eyes of many designers, from then’s Coco Chanel to today’s Jean Paul Gaultier.
Aside from the French, the Italians have also made the traditional striped shirt a signature costume. Whenever I see these stripes, I can’t help but associate them with the gondoliers of Venice.Nothing else says “nautical” more perfectly than the striped shirt, don’t you agree? With thoughts of cruising in a yacht or a sailboat, channel your inner sailor by partnering the top with anchor prints or a bottom with rows of gold buttons, and feel saucy in your imaginary seafaring adventure.
There are so many ways to wear this classic piece, so don’t be afraid to be bold with it and to add your personal twist to it!
