The nautical trend or horizontal stripes is a huge fashion statement this season. Fashion gurus across the globe are focusing attention on women in the sailor look. Initially women were only well versed with T shirts in this style however this season there are plenty of options to choose from.
Most of the famous designers are featuring this trend in their fashion lines and stylists are helping women to get in on the trend. If you want to get in on this look then I have a few tips to share with you.
Women who want to sport the nautical look must look beyond shirts and T shirts in this style. You need to look at key pieces of clothing that you can wear in this look; however ensure that it suits your style and personality.
Personally I love the jackets and blazers in the nautical look. They don’t cost a lot and they can be worn with dresses, trousers, skirts and even jeans. That’s the reason why I feel that investing in a jacket is a good idea.
If you want to wear the nautical look for a coffee date with your friends or to the movies or simply as a casual look when you are hanging out at the mall then wear a pair of jeans with a basic black or white T shirt and wear a blazer with this look.
It’s the prefect way to wear it for a casual look. For a formal look you can pair the jacket with a navy blue skirt or a pair of trousers. Alternatively you could wear it with a pair of red shorts for a night out or for a dinner date.
Look out for shoes with hint of the nautical look; they are the prefect accessory to have on your person. If this style is too bold for you then simply invest in a few buttons with sailor accents on them and place them on any of your monotone outfits.
While wearing nautical stripes is easy it is important to pay attention to the details. If you have a small chest then you can wear a tight fitting T shirt in this style to create an illusion of a large chest. However if you have wide hips then refrain from wearing the stripes on that region as it will make your hips look large.
Accessorizing the look is easy. All you have to do is wear chunky jewelry, multi stranded chains and a wide belt over an oversized shirt to complete the look.
