The nautical look is a summer wardrobe staple with cool stripes and fun iconic symbols. Many designers for 2012 have used elements of this classic look in their Spring collections, but it’s all about mixing it up and not going for the obvious to keep it fresh.
Look for sweet nautical print dresses with little anchor prints or wave patterns. Opt for the classic navy, red and white hues but rather than go for a classic striped Breton sailor top, choose a vertical striped dress with cute details such as the Olivia Rubin dress shown below.
1) Azur dress – Olivia Rubin £235 2) Stack Heart Rings – £10 Maggie Angus 3) Anchor Earrings – £14.00 Maggie Angus 4) Vintage Large Red Clutch – £20 Rock my Vintage 5) Bourne Adele Peep Toe Blue Snakeskin Sandal – £167.00 Spoiled Brat
Adding a nautical theme to an outfit with accessories is a great and affordable way to update your look. Look for deck shoes in most high-street stores or customise a tired old top with sew on anchor patches or rope patterned belts available at most haberdasher stores.
At Maggie Angus, we’ve got plenty of jewellery pieces for Spring that will add a quirky hint of sailor chic to your wardrobe. The Nautical Charm Necklace with a navy anchor charm, red mirrored acrylic heart and sweet peace sign is a fun and original piece that has a fab retro hint about it.
Hope you like these looks.
