Icons and Their Stripes

I'm not sure what it is exactly that makes me swoon over the classic Breton sailing style shirts but I simply can't resist them. It must be that they ooze French chic mixed with a laidback vibe of total coolness :) It's mind-blowing to think that the whole trend started in the 1900's with the amazing Mademoiselle Chanel and her trip to the French Riviera. So, this morning I’d love to share a few of my favourite icons sporting this nautical staple to the perfection. Don't they look dashing? Do you wear stripes? xo

P.S: More adorable stripes!
P.P.S: And this whole outfit - love.
