Fab Friday: Get on board with the Nautical Trend

Friday, 3 June 2011
I'm pretty glad that the nautical trend is here to stay. This season, I'd like to take a fresher approach to it by using different colours or even textures. My wardrobe is mostly full of stripy tops in black/white or blue/white. There is a huge selection on the high-street I couldn't feature all of them, but here are just a few I picked out.
50's Style Summer Dress; Topshop £3
The 50's dress has made a comeback! This one adds a playful twist.
Maxi Dress; Topshop £30
Minidress; Mango £39.90
Stripes on a black background are more flattering if you're the self-conscious type.
Two-tone Dress; Zara £22.99
Horizontal stripes add inches, this two-tone dress is great for pear-shape girls. It gives the illusion of smaller hips to balance out your figure.
ASOS Poison Platforms £65

Go on, join in on the sailor fun! Just try not to go over board with the stripes (get it? over board, ha!). A nautical dress is a statement in itself, keep it clean and modern. So, what is your take?

This is such a fresh trend! I have a great red and white striped top with a bow neck that is fun to wear. This post inspires me to try sailors stripes in more interesting color combos.
