Everyone is wearing: the striped long-sleeved t-shirt

This time of year, rather than the summer months, is when the Breton top comes in to its own. Last week, all three women I share an office with, came in layered-up in striped long-sleeved t-shirts. An absolute master of multi-tasking, this chic base layer looks the business beneath boiler suits, tunic dresses, oversized sweatshirts, utility jackets and trench coats. I love a good stripe. And that’s why I’m off to see the Bridget Riley exhibition tomorrow (write up coming soon).

Style Notes: The striped t-shirt I’m wearing in the photo is from Jigsaw. When in Paris, I usually buy a couple of Saint James nautical stripe tops; for a cool colour combo you can’t beat agnes b and Gudrun Sjoden, and vintage-lovers take a look at these 1960s original French Bretons on Etsy.
