Breton stripes are an easy way to achieve a classic, European look this spring—even for evening! Actress Michelle Borth wore a body-conscious short sleeved Breton stripe mini dress at the screening of her film A Good Old-Fashioned Orgy at the Tribeca Film Festival in NYC. She dressed it up with patent pointed-toe pumps and a clutch, sticking to a simple black palette to pull the look together.
