The right stripes

Who doesn't love a stripe top? No one, that's who. Finding your holy grail breton is up there with finding your perfect jeans or the right winter boots. Getting dressed every day is just so much easier when your wardrobe contains your best version of the basics, so it's no wonder the search for the perfect breton can occupy so much brain space.

Whether you pair your stripes with your favourite jeans, dress them up for work or go a bit more flamboyant with mix and match stripes and florals, our newly-expanded range of stripe tops means we have the right one for you this season, whatever your fit and stripe preferences.

Introducing: the Kettlewell stripes

The Stripey Pima Tee is your essential skinny fit tee this winter, with subtle mini-ribbing to keep it fitted and narrow stripes. Created in a supersoft pima cotton/modal combination, this tee is made for layering. Mine will be paired with dungarees and Kettlewell's amazing slouchy Holly Wrap, or for a neater look try it with skinny jeans and a cosy Merino City Poncho. Paired with our new favourite, the Roxy Jacket, it also makes for a great nod to the current 90s trend.

The modern-but-classic stripe of the Monaco Stripe Top makes it a perfect smart-casual pairing with trousers this winter. Try it with slim fitting smart 7/8th length trousers for work, or our new favourites, the super stylish Reiko Chinos for a more dressed down but still chic look. For extra warmth and a splash of colour, you can also layer our bestselling silky roll neck underneath this stripe top, which is cut for a slightly looser fit than the pima stripe. Add a pop of colour with a Suede Belt and a Crystal Hoopla Necklace.

The hunt is over for your classic breton. This multi-functional breton in fabulously soft cotton, with a hint of elastane for fit, is available in a range of vibrant colour ways (I love the neon!) and will pair with more or less everything in your wardrobe. For classic look pair with our new Winona Blazer, or for a modern twist try a midi Weekend Skirt and sneakers with your breton for a casual vibe. Switch sneakers for ankle boots for a smarter lunch date look. I love double stripes, so will be pairing my breton with a complementary colour Stripe Scarf!
