I know spring feels incomprehensibly distant when your current morning routine includes defrosting your windshield, but spring will be here before you know it—we promise! Like so many warm weather seasons before it, one of the biggest projected trends for spring 2011 is nautical. We’ve cast our net far and wide and realized that the quintessential nautical style staple is breton stripes.
These horizontal stripes originated in the French region of Brittany in 1858 as the standard shirt uniform for the French Navy. Eventually, the graphic print, traditionally in navy blue, black, or red, made its way into mainstream fashion.
Does the even print of breton stripes appeal to your aesthetic?
