Set sail for new horizons in this season’s gorgeous nautical styles
Nautical is always a must in the summer months and 2017 is no exception. Favoured by the a-list, with everyone from the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton to Alexa Chung and Emma Roberts all being partial to a yachting inspired ensemble. This season be a style captain in our top maritime inspired styles.
Embrace a naval colour palette of red, white and blue for the basis of this look. Choose blazers with military detailing, such as gold buttons to emphasise the nautical look. Wear over a tee and fitted trousers to perfect you smart/casual off duty style. Opt for chunky, masculine watches and team with a straw trilby for the ultimate summer vibe.

Relaxed suiting in ice blue hues, such as this Reiss blazer and tailored trouser, will give a nod to nautical without going over board. Wearing suiting over fine knitwear, such as this bretton inspired, striped, round neck sweater from Marks and Spencer is incredibly sharp and pulls the maritime palette together. Once again search out more androgynous watches and look out from sailor style stripe details.

Want to add a feminine twist to sailing style? Then team a flirty hemmed skirt with one of this season’s favourite motif tops. Saying it with a sweater is always best and we love this piece of nautical knitwear teaming navy and white stripes with an anchor design. If this outfit feels too subdued for summer then add a pop of colour with some white wedges and this gorgeous red, lobster clutch from Bell & Fox.
