We’re all about safe bets and what we mean when we say that, is buying something that we know won’t date. Great for the pocket and even better for the environment. With this in mind, we bring you three prints that will guarnatee years of wear. In fact, we hope that you wear them out before they date!
1. The Stripe
Who doesn’t love a good Breton stripe? Actually to be a true Breton, it should have 21 stripes, each representing a Napoleon victory because sailors were wearing stripes way back in 1858 (apparently the distinctive print made it easier to spot wayward sailors who had fallen over-board). Breton tops come into their own in spring, when we see fresh shades of colour in the shops. Boden are particularly partial to a stripe.
