My Favourite Summer Trend

Summer Trend Alert: Nautical

This trend has been back in style every summer and this year it’s been reinvented with more highlights of elegance, glamour, and vintage sashay for the 2011 season.

On the Runway

Inspired by sailors and started almost 100 years ago by Coco Chanel when she was having an affair with the Duke of Westminster. He was a yachting admirer and Chanel started dressing like the sailors. She made the men’s sailing apparel suitable for women and just like Christmas is every December, you can expect the nautical trend to come back every summer. Here are a few tips on how to wear it…

For the ideal look, you want your colours to include: red, blue, and white, and the pattern to be stripes.

- Add in some neon for a pop of colour. ( another fun summer trend)

-Minimize your accessories, and use raw materials.

-Go for breezy, it is summer after all!

-My little tip? Make one item in your outfit striped, and the rest patternless.

Taking the runway to our day to day office life.

Until next time wishing you Fair winds and Following Seas!
