Who doesn't love the Breton top? With nautical roots, the breton top originates from within the navy, and was designed with the idea that it would make sailors easier to spot at sea if in trouble. Flash forward decades and decades later and the breton top is now a firm summer staple and a great companion to the nautical trends of the season.

I have been a lover of Breton tops and their stripy counterparts for a long time now and I finally was lucky enough to come into possession of one that I believe to be as authentic as some of the more earlier designs. I picked up this particular top while at 'The Bloggers Market'  from Kristabel's stand. My eyes immediately gravitated towards it (As they usually do when stripes are involved) and I snapped it up fast before anyone else behind me could!

This post will be the first in a two part series in which I share two different ways to style the Breton top this summer.  The outfits will be of a casual, summery and fun style which I hope will provide you with some inspiration on how to style your own breton this summer.

The first look I have created is with my favourite Boohoo  dungarees and it's got a fun, I-should-be-a-children's-television-presenter type vibe about it.

Now, I don't know what it is, but Breton tops somehow always seem to work best with dungarees. From the days of me toddling around my living room in Sheffield, to the ever awkward mufti days of school; a breton top and dungarees was always the outfit of choice for me.

I paired the dungarees with some simple, blue, converse inspired trainers from Primark at the fabulous price of £6.00, which is a hell of a lot cheaper than the real converse and they're quite comfortable too! I find that they go so perfectly with the dungarees, when the legs have been rolled up and help to enhance the 'I'm a children's TV presenter' aesthetic so much more.

I've kept accessories simple, with this blue, paisley inspired headband from H&M which is the same as this red one worn in this post. I find that the band, helps to tie the whole look together and compliment the nautical style of the breton.

I'm a big fan of bretons and an even bigger fan of dungarees. So the combination of the two together makes for an outfit, kind of wonderful. I hope you all liked how I've chosen to style this breton and have hopefully found some inspiration on how to style your own.

Join me next week, when I share with you guys a second, fun and summery way to style the breton.

As always thank you guys so much for reading! Until next time...
