A simple Breton striped top and black skinny jeans is one of my go-to outfits when I’m dashing about. With a nod to the effortlessly chic Parisian style, it’s a classic look that never goes out of fashion. I love striped tops so much that I have at least ten, and although I prefer black/white and navy/white, I have added a few in different colours to my collection recently, which I wear with jeans for a casual look and cropped trousers for the office.
The jacket I’m wearing is a real wardrobe hero…it’s a really versatile little jacket which I get such a lot of wear out of. It’s lightweight so perfect for warmer days when I want a “completer piece”. The faux leather lapels just add a little bit of an edge to an otherwise plain black jacket. If I want to add some colour to the outfit I can swap the black Modalu satchel for a bag in a bright colour such as red.
