Kate Middleton is one of our favourite style icons.
The Duchess of Cambridge always looks absolutely sensational when dressed up for royal engagements but Kate is also one of those women that pulls off looking stunning when in her casual attire too.
While like many of us the Duchess clearly enjoys a good dress, stuck at home with three young children, Kate is also well versed in ‘dressing down’.
But she still managed to look incredible in a wardrobe staple Breton stripe top when appearing on TV last week alongside husband Prince William, when the pair made a special appearance on video call on the BBC.
The Duchess of Cambridge is no stranger to the striped must-have and we’ve seen her rocking this style statement many times.
This is a look that never dates and is perfect for your isolation wardrobe with a pair of comfy elasticated trousers or a sleek pair of jeans, a good Breton striped top is one to keep forever.
We round up our high street favourites here so you can steal Kate’s style from as little as £8.95.
Kate shows off her perfect isolation style in a chic Breton tee.
But you can get the look from just £8.95.
Tee, £25, M&S
A total classic and a good copy of Kate’s actual top, this long sleeve striped top will become an absolute go-to in your wardrobe.
Great with jeans, it will also look cute with dungarees or under block colour pinafores.
boxy tee, £65, Toast
The boxy tee is ultimate goals for isolation right?
This mega comfy number is perfect for the summer.
top, £8.95, Regatta
The block colour detailing mixed with the stripe is super smart on this long sleeve top.
Its also a great option for those who might find full stripes a little overwhelming.
boat neck, £26, La Redoute
The Duchess is a big fan of a boat neck and so are we.
This style is great for those that want to add width to their upper torso, especially for those looking to widen their shoulders to balance out hips, a little optical illusion trick!
red stripe, £22.95, Joules at John Lewis and Partners
Spring for some colour, this still keeps the breton within those classic nautical realms but adds a lovely splash of bold brightness that we all need right now.
And with the blue trim it will still look super chic with denim too.
boat neck top, £34.95, GAP
GAP does the classics so well, so it comes as no surprise that they make our list for best in show when it comes to breton stripes.
This 3/4 length sleeve is great for those ever increasing temperatures.
stripe tee, £28, Boden
While the Duchess often keeps it classic with her stripes, don’t be afraid to add a pop of colour to your breton.
A striped top never dates, no matter the hue, so this navy and pink combo is a lovely little injection of fun.
stripe tee, £22.50, French Connection at John Lewis Partners
We can’t really get enough of these striped numbers.
Breton is an all year round look, but it works especially well for warmer months as it gives a nod to the nautical trend that rears its head every Spring.
stripe top, £129, Saint James
This French heritage brand pioneered breton in the 1800s, so if you want to head to one of the reasons we have this nautical but nice look then Saint James is the one.
