It’s great to know that when you’re buying something that you know it won’t date, the print will still look fresh year after year.

Great for the pocket and even better for the environment. With this in mind, I’m going to feature three prints within my next few posts that will guarantee years of wear. In fact, I hope that you wear them out before they date!

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 overboard).

Breton tops come into their own in spring, when we see fresh shades of colour in the shops. Boden is particularly partial to a stripe.
