Ways to wear this season’s nautical trend

All aboard! It’s time to channel spring’s staple trend with our nautical-inspired collection.

All the top designers, including Ralph Lauren, Giorgio Armani and Marni, showcased red, white and blue styles on the spring/summer 2016 catwalks, confirming its status as a key spring look.

Whether you’re jetting off for some sun this spring or looking forward to a relaxing staycation, we’ve got the perfect nautical pieces for your suitcase.

Seaside Staycation

Breton stripes, polka dots and plenty of denim will keep you looking ship-shape this spring.

Angle grazer and cropped trousers work well with loafers and canvas shoes for a relaxed, daytime look.

Dress it up with a pair of wedge sandals, tan accessories and gold jewellery.

Riviera Vacation

If you’re lucky enough to be headed for a Riviera resort on a spring break, turn up the glamour factor with  full skirts, sunglasses and an oversized hat.

Dining alfresco or headed for a riverside wine bar? Opt for a linen shift dress with a pair of wedge or mid-heel sandals.
