Trend Watch: Nautical

Ahoy there, matey!

Steer your way into summer with one of the season’s biggest trends – nautical garb, because if you’re anything like me, you probably curse like a sailor, so you may as well dress like one.

To get in tune with the waves, try this super-sexy; ultra-flattering two piece bathing suit from CHANGE. The vertical stripes elongate the body for a slimmer look, and the bright red details make this bikini a fun, must-have. And, as an added bonus, CHANGE specialized in professional fittings, so you’re sure to get the perfect fit.

For working girls looking to spice up your weekday wardrobe, white, wide-leg trousers make for a good summer investment. The cool look of white refreshes the eyes, while the cut of the trousers create a longer; leaner leg. Daring fashionistas out there should try a high-waisted pair for a bolder look.

If a bold-striped, structured blazer like Les Copain‘s is too much for the weather, try a funky vertical stripe scarf like the one by Club Monaco paired with a white vest and cap sleeve tee. Not only will you achieve nautical chic, but the vertical stripe draws the eye up and down the body, and not across, giving the illusion of a slimmer silhouette – not that your silhouette isn’t already slim.

Date night – or day is no sweat with more stripes and flirty, high-waisted a-line skirts. For a change of pace from traditional red, try other vibrant colours like salmon. To make an even sexier statement – try a striped dress like this little Lux number, and you may just get a good-night-kiss.

To top off that perfect outfit, try a shade of red for your lips. MAC is the place to fo for sheer, daytime reds like “ladybug,” and super matte, dramatic reds like, “russian red.”

Now, all hands on deck – I mean, credit cards, and shop happily in an ocean of stripes and bold colours.
