The turn of the New Year arrives and brings with it a multitude of opportunities. It’s a fresh start, a time to set resolutions, have a spring clean – mentally and physically and best of all re-think our wardrobes. Christmas is over and gone with it is all of the pomp, the glitter, the glitz and glam peacocked around over the festivities and frankly we’re kind of glad.
Its time to strip back, freshen up the palette and keep things simple yet stylish. With SS15 shimmering invitingly on the horizon it’s time to think about chic trans-seasonal pieces that will take you through the coming months. For this month’s edit we’re looking at ‘Yacht Club’, pieces with a natty nautical twist – from sweet pea coats to chic sailor stripes and everything in navy and white. All hands on deck as we talk you through how to get shipshape style!
Look One – Lovestruck sailor wears heart on sleeve
Inspired by the classic Breton top, this oversized slouchy top features an all-over stripe design that immediately screams ‘Summer!’. With long sleeves it’s perfect for now and the lightweight fabric makes it great for layering. Red heart patches to the sleeve put a new twist on an age-old saying and incorporate classic nautical colouring. We reckon it looks good worn with distressed skinnies and court shoes for a dinner date (very V-day appropriate). Dress it down with a pair of trainers like Stan Smiths for chilled-out weekends.
Look Two – Sailing the high seas meets city style
This polka dot jumpsuit fuses classic print with a thoroughly modern silhouette. A versatile number it looks great worn during the day or night – pair with boyish brogues for a stroll around the city or team with a straw hat and sandals for a trip to the Riviera. After dark lift your look with a heeled sandal. We love it paired with this bold yellow bag for a cool colour clash.
A little bit retro and a whole lot sweet, this super-cute get up is perfect for spring and summer days. Wear it to hop aboard for a cruise along the coast or for landlubbers it’s perfect for heading into town at the weekend. The monochrome print shorts and tops adds just the right amount of understated chic, while the candy lemon princess coat adds a sugary twist to your style for a feminine finish.
Look Four – Natty navy
With further sixties style influences this mini dress features the classic nautical-inspired colour combo of navy and white. We like it best paired with boyish brogues or a cute ballerina pump with a sturdy sole.
