The humble striped breton top is a style staple that has stood the test of time. One of the easiest prints to wear, it’s a worthy investment that will see you through season and after season. Despite popular opinion, stripes won’t make you appear larger–that’s if you pick the correct print. As a general rule, horizontal striped clothes are the most figure-flattering–as they draw the eye downwards.

This season, stripes have had a glamorous makeover and appear in bold color combinations and in luxe fabrics on shirts and dresses. Instantly update your wardrobe with these top picks.

I'd have to say the silk shirt is my favorite. The wrap dress isn't bad as well, but I'm not a huge fan of the strip trousers. Probably because i haven't found a pair that don't make my legs look like skyscrapers.
