When Coco Chanel donned a striped Breton sailor T back in 1917, little did she know she would ignite a trend for nautical themed fashions that would remain popular almost a century later.
This season, once again, there is a tidal wave of blue and white horizontal stripes, blanketing everything from T-shirts to bags and shoes. And that other yachting colour combo – red, white and blue – is also making its way ashore.
Perhaps it’s the graphic simplicity of those bold lines that make it such a popular and enduring trend. It’s very easy to wear and the look has an air of freshness.
If you’re lucky to be booked for a cruise on the high seas this month or heading to a warm and sunny destination, these pieces make for easy packing and offers a strikingly chic look.Striped Shoes, $19, Joe Fresh
