Get Olivia Palermo’s look with the Marinière Top by Petit Bateau

The Breton Stripe Top: Dress it down with shorts or a flouncy skirt and flats (see above), and it’s perfect for daytime errand running; glam it up with a structured skirt, heels, and a statement necklace (above, right) and you’re ready for a day at the office, or even drinks with friends. Either way, you’re sure to look effortlessly chic, and that’s why we love this top. Well, that and its lifesaving potential (yes, you read that correctly).

Legend has it that back in the day French sailors were required to wear Breton stripes – not because the French wanted their mariners to be super fashionable – but because the stripes made the sailors easier to spot in the ocean should they fall overboard. Bottom line: if you’re going on a cruise, you might want to throw some Breton stripe pieces in the suitcase….and we’ve rounded up the crème de la crème just for you. Take a look at the slideshow of the best Breton stripe tops after the jump.


Be sure to check out Gwyneth Paltrow’s take on Breton Stripes, our guide to white jeans (they’d look great with that new striped top), and the best flat sandals.
