Sailor sweater : how to wear it ?

The sailor sweater is a garment steeped in history that symbolizes French elegance. Plain or striped, you never get tired of the authentic sailor sweater. It allows you to oscillate between all styles. For both men and women, find in this article all our advice for wearing the sailor sweater.

A Breton look

To bring out the sailor in you, wear the authentic sailor sweater with chinos or raw jeans, white sneakers and a hat, a miki or a sailor cap.

To complete your Breton look in winter, you can combine your sailor sweater with several classic and trendy coats in woolen cloth: the caban, the kabig or the duffle coat.

A casual look

For a trendy outfit, do not hesitate to combine your sailor sweater with slim, flared (very flared at the bottom) or straight jeans, white sneakers or a pair of boots, a trench coat, a denim jacket or a biker jacket in black leather.

Wearing the sailor sweater with a long-sleeved shirt may seem classic and even cliché, but this duo can be modern if you choose a fitted shirt, if its collar protrudes slightly from your sweater and if you let the handles of your shirt protrude without close the buttonhole.

A feminine look

If it is traditionally worn with pants, the easiest way to feminize this timeless garment is to wear it with a dress or a skirt. The choice of skirt will depend on your appearance: mini-skirt, pencil skirt, trapeze, pleated, long...

You can also tuck your sailor sweater into your jeans, add a pretty belt to mark your waist, wear a blazer and dare colourful or printed accessories, such as a scarf, a clutch or jewellery.
