Year after year we hear that nautical style is making a comeback, and this year is certainly no different. Maritime stripes and boating blues were once again splashed all over the Spring Summer ’14 catwalks by designers such as Acne, Chanel, Ralph Lauren and Valentino, and this is one trend that looks like it is here to stay. So, with this in mind, we’ve put together a few sure style ways for you to pull off the nautical style in a simple, effortless and super stylish manner.
The off-duty casual look is guaranteed to ooze effortless style with subtle nautical undertones, perfect for the warm summer months on their way. Here we have paired the Crew Clothing Classic Pique Polo in white with the Musto Grayson Chinos in light stone for a fresh and clean match, and then paired with the hand sewn Sebago Docksides for a classic summer ensemble. Finish perfectly with the Barbour Classic Leather Belt in brown, and there you have a super stylish off-duty casual nautical look.
If the thermometer begins to drop as evening falls, wear a plain and dark coloured v-neck sweater draped loosely over the shoulders and tie the sleeves at the chest. Take a look at the Crew Clothing Foxley V-Neck here.
Bold pops of colour especially bright reds and deep blue’s together have long been a classic nautical style. By pairing a sleeveless gilet with a horizontally striped jumper the torso instantly gains a more masculine shape, we’ve selected the Crew Clothing Ridley Gilet and the Joules Shawford Jumper here as a perfect example. Pair with the Barbour Euston Garment Dyed Trousers (shown here in red), and complete the look with the Barbour Flinders Boat Shoes.
This a look that simply can’t fail, it may look bold, but the strong colour and cut combinations give this trend instant confidence.
Full steam ahead nautical! This is the look that really shouts nautical and style all at the same time. Wear a smart and sophisticated tailored blazer such as the Crew Clothing Ashton Blazer shown here, with a striped or checked blue shirt such as the Joules Tilman Striped Shirt shown here for an instant sailing style, then pair with chino shorts like the Crew Clothing Bermuda Shorts to complete the look. Finally add the Sebago Spinnaker Boat Shoes and the Barbour Leather Trimmed Stretch Belt for the perfect final finishing touches.
There you have it, your complete guide to nautical style! So whether you’re beach-side, yachting, or none of the above, you can be sure that you are dressed to impress with Outdoor & Country.
