French-girl fashion is a favourite among editors, celebrities and bloggers for a reason. It's seen as effortless and chic—forget body con dresses and over-the-top ensembles. And at the centre of that wardrobe is the Breton stripe shirt. It's a simple staple that you can buy in an array of fits and colours—and it goes with pretty much anything. But, if you've fallen into a fashion rut and need to find a way to make that striped top exciting again, we've got some suggestions.
