The capture of all things naughty and nautical

The look of polka-dots, high-waisted hot pants and a captain’s hat are paired with pinup makeup and beach blown hair -

This trend has been charming its self into our hearts for years now, the nautical look seems to be something that inspires me more and more each year, adding further items to my collection of sailor girl inspired pieces.

 This look can only remind me of the spring time, with its retro feel created by adding red lipstick this look is easily adapted to any style combination for day and night.  The colours associated with the nautical look, are tones of red, white and blue, sometimes you will see other tones of dark blue combinations even black (This is a great look with black trousers, team black and white stripe body with black trousers red lips and chunky heels.

Embellishments on garments seen within the trend are Anchors which are sometimes can be seen on tops, cardigans and hats, with the Eiffel tower sometimes being added to give a touch of the Parisian feel. Rope belts are also a big addition to the nautical trend wearing around black/navy Capri trousers, and a Bardot scoop neck stripe tee-shirt to give the utter pinup girl experience- Perfect! Love this trend!
