Outfit of the Week: Spring Weekend Nouvelle Vague

By

Every now and then, you need to tap into the nonchalant style of Jean Seberg's character in Breathless, that cornerstone classic of French new wave. Incidentally, her breezy look and Breton stripes are the perfect spring weekend uniform. Start with a boxy striped top, and pair it with your favorite loose denim, then add an espadrille or lace flats and keep with the simplified theme by stowing all of your essentials in a small bucket tote.
