Nothing quite beats a classic Breton. Whether I’m travelling, enjoying the outdoors or just relaxing at home, this top is my go to. I have a collection of Bretons in different colours which I’ve built up over the years and usually pair them with dark denim jeans, a navy or white skirt, under dungarees or with white culottes. They brighten up any outfit and are an easy and comfortable option, especially on days when I just don’t know what to wear.

If there’s a brand that knows how to design and make a good Breton it’s Boden. It’s almost their signature item and one which Boden is loved for. Each season new styles of the top are introduced, from short sleeve stripes in the spring and summer months to thick red cottons during autumn and motifs added during the festive season. They’re always the best quality and can be washed hundreds of times before any fading or pulls appear.


Here are some of my current favourite Boden Bretons and accompanying pieces.
