This spring nautical fashion will be everywhere but it is not just for one season. Fresh, clean and classic, the maritime trend will see you looking well turned out whether it is at work, out to lunch or on a date. The stripes are flattering to most figures helping to slim your torso and navy suits all skin tones.
Apart from fresh holiday colours, look out for brass buttons, rope belting, espadrilles and white stripes. Jewellery featuring gulls, anchors and knots are great accessories and don’t forget your sunglasses for Riviera chic.
So get ready to board that yacht and set sail with this choice selection:
