Four buttons and a Breton top

As Hollywood's best-dressed hit Cannes last week, I decided to work a touch of Riviera chic myself. Cue more Breton stripes from Gap. This time, a cute boatneck style for just a tenner.

Inspired by a nautical version from French label Petit Bateau (which was 38€!), I raided the button tin I'd inherited from the Stickman's grandma Ellen and set to work customising my Gap number. Two navy buttons stitched into place on each shoulder and the top was transformed. Simple, easy and quick.

All it took was four little buttons to make this top my own. Plus, it's given a casual jersey an air of Gallic charm. Très chic, non?
