Breton Top

Chic work outfit with a breton top
Do you know a woman who doesn't own a breton top? I don't. This simple garment, first introduced in 1858 as the uniform for all French navy seaman in Brittany, quickly evolved and became a hero buy thanks to Coco Chanel who brought it to the attention of the fashion world. 

I think it's safe to say that the breton top will never go out of style. It goes with pretty much everything we have in our wardrobes so for today's look I decided to team it with black trousers and Chanel-esque blazer. 

Of course, I wouldn't be myself if I didn't add a pop of colour to my outfit. This time I opted for green heels that I bought ages ago in the New Look sale.
