BATTEN down the hatches! Fashion is going nuts for all things nautical this summer!
Whether you turn port or starboard down the high street, you can`t help but notice a sea of blues, whites and reds.
It`s great to finally have a really fun trend that you can take as far as you like – whether you want to merely tip your cap to the trend with a couple of accessories or go full-on and give Captain Birdseye a run for his money – well, maybe not that far!
Topshop`s jewellery line, Freedom, has a veritable treasure trove of nautical accessories, including blinging gold bracelets and necklaces and striped earrings blazoned with anchor detailing. Their clothing lines are also brimming with cute high-waisted shorts with anchor detailing on the buttons – great for petite women and those wanting to draw attention to their waists.
New Look is also awash with cabin fever – check out their rails for some nautical bargains and log onto www.urbanoutfitters.co.uk for baggy, high-waisted denim shorts – they`re being tipped as shape of the summer.
