Earn Your Stripes – How to Wear the Nautical Trend by Kirstie Clements


(Shop: Brenda Tunic, Frieda Bag)

Navy, white, stripes and denim. This crisp, classic combination is always a winner, and instantly spells holiday. Or at the very least, lunch on the wharf!

Start with core pieces such as the Simone jean in white, paired with the Signature Stripe Milano T-shirt or the Magic Vee T-shirt with its flattering v neckline (caution – if you are broad shouldered a boat neck can make you appear wider) and a pair with pristine white plimsolls or espadrilles.

The Robyn Memory spray jacket in smart stripes is a great weekend cover up, very chic over skinny jeans or the Eva Crop Pant in navy.

For a slightly dressier take on nautical, pair the Elisha Denim Pencil Skirt and the Signature Stripe Crop Jacket, with a sleek white Mia singlet tank and a navy wedge heel. A chunky gold or silver bracelet or necklace would be a nice finishing touch.

As for my favourite accessories? The stripy Nelly scarf (love it with a denim shirt) and the Frieda Cross Body Bag.
