outfit: the breton crop

This cotton wool blend breton top from Cos shrunk a bit when it accidentally ended up in the dryer.  Now it makes the perfect crop to wear with high waisted anything.  What a surprise.  I haven’t seen any breton crops, especially ones with tomboy drop shoulders out there. I’m loving this simple twist to a modern classic.

outfit: breton stripes + chinos

I set out to the new Cos store in soho to fill a few holes in my essentials wardrobe, a breton stripe top and classic chinos. Here I’m wearing a lose fit 3/4 length cotton/wool breton top with dropped shoulders, tucked into the front of straight leg 100% cotton chinos, that sit nice and high on the waist.  Nothing groundbreaking here.  But it is exciting to start building a solid wardrobe foundation.
