7 ways with our 5* organic cotton breton

Posted by Sally McLaren on

Our organic cotton Layla Breton Crew is an all year round wardrobe essential. 

As we head into this new year, I wanted to share 7 ways to wear our 5 star best-seller to show how versatile this classic breton really is.

Now is the perfect time to be getting your wardrobe foundations in order, and our breton long-sleeved crew really is the most adaptable garment you can own, lending itself to countless end-uses and different looks, at any time of the year.

I created these looks when life was slightly more normal. When we had places to go and people to see. When we were not in a lockdown. However, hopefully they'll still inspire you for when life as we know it resumes. Plus, this t-shirt looks great with joggers and jeans, is crazily soft and comfortable, making it very wearable and useful whilst we're at home during lockdown.

Layer your breton under a boiler suit and on a rainy spring day top off with a rain coat - simple, comfortable, practical.

On a colder day, and for something slightly smarter, simply switch up your rain coat for a wool coat and add boots with a heal.


Clash your stripes by pairing your breton with a printed skirt...I love a stripe with leopard print as shown here, but our classic will work equally as well when clashed with florals or polka dots.

Wear with a pleated or tiered skirt to add texture and movement like this floaty midi, worn here with a light jacket and ankle boot.


Play around with scarves and wraps to add interesting layers - using the scarf as a wrap like this is a great alternative to a cardigan and gives you a new way to wear and maximise your scarves too. Simply add a belt to hold in place. I love this look for a lazy weekend pub lunch (I can only dream!).

Team your Layla with denim dungarees and Converse for the ultimate "mum uniform".

And finally, our breton loves a pop of colour - this unstructured coat never fails to brighten up my day and I always get plenty of smiles when I wear this colour. Wearing warm bright colours can instantly have a positive impact on your mood. During this time of uncertainty, it means now is a great time to try wearing something bright with your everyday Ivy t's.

What we wear each day is a simple thing that we can control at the moment so try layering your Ivy t-shirts with some bright colours through knitwear or sweats, and finish with a head band, bright earrings or simply a touch of bright lipstick to bring colour to your face.

Most importantly, be comfortable and feel confident.
