Best Of Breton

We love our Breton stripes, and we’re in good company. Our favorite wardrobe essential, the Breton top, is the ultimate ‘I have nothing to wear’ solution according to blogger Megan Ellaby. Originated in France, brought to the masses by Coco Chanel in 1917, and a favorite of Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol and Audrey Hepburn; the Breton striped top is the fashion staple of the century. We launched our first Harbour top in 2003, and its wearability and versatile style quickly secured it as a Joules classic. Four of our favorite bloggers earn their stripes and show us how they wear their Harbours.

“The Breton stripe top is one of my go to fashion staples, a piece that I know I will love and rock for many moons to come.”

I love a striped top because it’s such a classic. Mixed with denim and a navy blazer for tailored casual wear, or using a Harbour as a neutral mixed with florals or other prints never fails to look fresh. As long as the tones mix, have confidence the print clash will work!”

Erica Davies,

Blogger in Harbour Stripes

“I can’t get enough Breton stripes, they are just simple yet slick and timeless. With more interest than a plain tee for the chuck on and go look, yet the perfect casual edge for a night out, I know I will never get bored of this wardrobe staple.”

Amy Rose-Watts,

“My Harbour is stretchy, washes well and must have some kind of optical illusion as well as I don’t look nearly as pregnant as I am when I wear it!”
