Breton stripes

One Breton Top – Three Outfits

Hello or Bonjour,

Are you as happy to see the sunnier weather as we are ?

The Nautical Company started nearly five years ago now and our customers adore our beautiful Breton tops. Stripes have always been in vogue, just look at Chanel !

So with one white and navy blue striped top we put together three different looks for you to easily create and enjoy.


Here comes the sun !

The first is for those hotter, relaxed days of summer, on holiday or at home. Team your striped top with a pair of versatile pink shorts, and for those who like the legs of shorts a little longer, they can be rolled down too. For all your personal possessions, our large beach bag is beautiful and large enough for all the essentials required on days out. Team up with one of Helen Moore funky faux fur pompoms and off you go.
