Hello sailor! Nautical fashion has hit the high seas and is riding the crest of a wave (that’s enough nautical nonsense for now, you get the picture).
Military we’ve lived through, several times over, so the next obvious armed forces look had to come from the high seas. We can’t say that any famous ocean-goers have ever come into our style radar, though.
We raise our sailor caps to Ellen MacArthur but she’s never inspired us to fashion fabulousness. Yet after last season’s mania for pirate-inspired scary skull and crossbones motifs, fashion has moved into calmer waters, with smart stripes and red, blues and whites all summing up the marine theme.
We’re setting our style compass to cruise control, sitting back and enjoying the view. This £8 sailor dress from Primark is perfect for showing that your style ship hasn’t yet sailed.
