Whilst I might not be sailing with Coco on the Good Ship Chanel, or doing the hula in the South Pacific with Christian Dior, I am feeling a little nautical as we move into Spring. I love Breton stripes and navy blazers when I’m feeling brave enough to move away from my staple monochromatic wardrobe. Nautical looks tend to have global appeal – I think blue and white move effortlessly from work into the evening. In addition, red, blue and white tend to match most skin tones.
I remember posting a nautical look on the blog last year when I paired white jeans with a striped t-shirt. This year I’m reversing the colours – I found these fabulous royal blue trousers on Ebay and I loved the cut so much I had to buy. I adored the detail of the pockets, the little gold buttons; and the slight flare seems in keeping with styles for Spring. I’m also a fan of the “smartness” of this look, in a large part I expect due to the front crease (which I normally avoid like the plague because I can’t iron for toffee but I made an exception for these.)
Some nautical looks I admire, below. Are you with me on my yacht or against me where the nautical look is concerned, Blog Reader?
