Insomniac Sale Picks: Breton Tops

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Susan requested a few picks for Breton/striped tops, so here we go:


lands end breton

Land’s End Breton Stripe Top – was $49, now $13.99

That’s a pretty stellar price for a classic Breton. The row of gold buttons on the shoulder are a thoughtful detail, and LE mentions that the yarn-dyed stripes will keep their color and not bleed. Available in this black/white combination as well as red/navy in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. Also available in petite, tall, and plus sizes. This half-zip pullover fleece also comes in regular, petite, tall, and plus sizes in three Breton stripe variants.

Boden Breton top

Boden Long Sleeve Breton – was $38, now $32.30
with code FRND

If you prefer the classic Breton combination of ivory and navy stripes, this top is a great choice. Reviewers give it high marks for quality and softness, and I love the clean, timeless shape and design. Available in this ivory/navy stripe as well as navy/ivory, lavender/ivory, ivory/brown, gray/ivory, ivory/lavender, ivory/red, ivory/turquoise, pink/ivory, ivory/yellow, and ivory/sage in sizes 2 – 18.  Size availability varies by color. A few are left in black/gray, hot pink/ivory, and cognac/pink here. This similar top is available in white/black in sizes 0X – 3X.

woolovers breton

Woolovers Silk/Cotton Breton Stripe Top – was $38, now $34.20
with code REFDDY

If you prefer your Breton in a sweater knit, Woolovers has this warm-weather appropriate silk/cotton blend that gets rave reviews from customers. Available in this tan/navy as well as black/tan, gray/white, French navy/white, tan/red/ red/pink, pale blue/white, and white/cobalt in sizes S – XL. This similar style is available in sizes 12 – 24. And this one isn’t on sale, but comes in regular, petite, plus, and petite plus sizes.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for Breton/striped tops:

  1. L.L. Bean – The French Sailor line is stocked year-round, and always includes top-notch Breton tops.
  2. Boden – Bretons are a Boden staple, too, and spring usually brings several iterations. LOVE this Peter Pan collar tunic.
  3. Gap – A great bet if you want something striped, but a little more lightweight. The Fluid Stripe Tee has a great relaxed fit.
  4. Amazon – I’m including this because there are a surprising number of maternity Breton stripes available!

    Thanks Sally for the great sale picks. I did manage to find a breton that worked for me at Macy’s.
