You don’t have to set sail to wear one of the hottest styles of summer. We’re talking nautical; have you seen Kate Middleton nautical dress? The look seems to make a comeback every summer — with no plans of going out of style. It’s an evergreen trend like the animal prints.
If there’s one current personality we’re getting inspiration from, it’s a certain member of the British royal family who’s been spotted adding nautical features to her couture. Kate Middleton pulls off this look effortlessly and makes it work because she only wears one nautical themed piece and then pairs it with basic accessories.
Stylists say the key to wearing stripes is all based on how the cut and shape of the garment. When in doubt, stick to more figure-flattering diagonal or vertical stripes and stay away from jumbo horizontal ones that lay on the areas of the body that you want to conceal.
Nautical-themed prints are always popular in the summertime because they incorporate breathable fabrics, like cotton, which help to beat the heat. And if you’re looking for some inspiration on how to wear either this season, take a cue from a Hollywood icon. Think of Audrey Hepburn. Sure, you could go all out with a red, white and blue sailboat ensemble, but for a simple look try a crisp, striped top with jeans and a comfortable loafer. You can also add simple nautical touches to your other cotton ensembles with rope accessories, ocean-inspired jewelry or striped wedges.
