GREAT BRETON

The Breton stripe is a classic and a great wardrobe staple. Bit of history for you, it was first introduced way back in 1858 to locate overboard seamen in Brittany. Since then it’s been seen everywhere, from Coco Chanel’s sailor inspired nautical collection in 1917 to today as a classic, laid-back essential.

Breton’s are everywhere this summer and to save you the trouble, I’ve located the best laid-back (and some a little more stand-up) looks from the high street…

Happy Breton-ing!

POM POMS AREN’T JUST FOR CHEERLEADERS…

Pom Poms are EVERYWHERE this season! A little pom pom trim is a surefire way to bring a wardrobe basic on-trend and add a little whimsy. They’re all over the catwalks and designers are loving them, but I’ve scoured the high street to find some affordable alternatives. Whether its a pom trim, multicoloured excitement or randomly placed poms – there’s something for every style!
