Breton stripes never go out of fashion. They are far too classic and essential an item to be relegated on a whim, but it's true that they do go through moments where popularity surges, and they become noticeably more on-trend than a season or moment before. Now is one such time. Everywhere I look, there are Breton stripes, and people are wearing them in such a variety of new ways that it's the perfect time to gather inspiration.
A nautical trend to autumn fashion is like butter to bread—the two are so much more delicious together and are inextricably linked. You will find that a well-chosen striped knit or tee is the kind of clever item, albeit simple, you'll pull out at this time every year without fail, making it an investment not to ignore.
Style Notes: Collared Bretons are having a bit of a moment—this Arket style sold out fast but is finally back in stock (and in my edit below). It's the details in each of these pieces that make a simple ensemble stand out.
