Hook the Nautical Fashion Look this Summer
Posted: Jun 12 2015
As the summer starts hotting up, keep cool in fresh and breezy nautical summer fashion. Anchors, stripes and boats are not just for sailors and red white and blue are more than just the colours of the Union Jack.
We just love everything marine which is proven by the timeless style of a nautical fashion collection, making nautical style a wise and affordable investment. With this style fitting almost any occasion you can think of, you simply can’t go wrong.
How to work the nautical look
The nautical look is defined by blue and white stripes, which instantly come to mind when thinking nautical fashion. Splashes of red, epaulettes and brass buttons and anchor motifs on nautical fashion accessories add to this statement style.
When thinking stripes go with fitting tank tops, t-shirts, vest or jumpers and pair them with navy capri trousers, your favourite dark denim jeans, navy shorts or even a glamorous pencil or skater skirt.
For a more formal look, there are lots of cheap dresses that carry the theme through, or you can simply add splashes of red and white with accessories, cardigans, or jackets to a classic navy dress.
Stripes aren’t alway the most slimming of patterns so add a waist-cinching belt or high waisted bottoms to add curvy definition to the look. Any accessory will look great in red too, a key colour for this look.
Not a fan of stripes? Nautical fashion looks are more than just stripes. Cream summer dresses, postbox red accessories (that means lippy too), and patterned scarves all compliment the nautical look and give you the scope to make the look your own.
For your feet, cruise a casual look in nautical colour themed pumps, a pair of laced plimsolls or even a pair of boat or deck shoes to make it fun. For the more formal look slip on your sexy heels, in red or navy of course.
Well, Hello Sailor! Now we have a chic, seafaring style that is suitable to be worn everywhere from the pub garden, a friendly barbeque or to the office.
