Luxury Nautical-Inspired Summer Fashion

This year, nautical fashion is back in style, particularly for luxury stores, high end designers, and even runway collections. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the key trends to watch out for.

Fishermen’s Sandals

Fishing has long since been a popular pastime for all, which in turn has inspired a wide range of fishing-themed media – from films, to TV shows, and even online casino games. Take Big Bass Splash for example, which uses icons like a fishing truck, rods, bait, fish, and, of course, fishermen themselves.

This creates an authentic and immersive fishing-themed casino experience. Whilst fishermen have their iconic pieces that make these characters recognisable, you might not have noticed what’s on their feet. And, what’s that, you ask? Fishermen’s sandals.

An item that was once only used by our dads and grandads, fishermen’s sandals have been hailed by Country & Town House as the official shoe of summer. These shoes are practical yet fashion forward, with many variations to choose from.

The Row offers chic, black leather fishermen’s sandals that will pair with many outfits, whilst Dr Martens offers a nude, suede variation. And, for extra luxury, check out Prada’s leather sandals with a logo-centric design.

Sailor’s Hats

At the Couture Fashion Week, Simone Rocha debuted as Jean Paul Gaultier’s guest designer with a bang. Jean Paul Gaultier has championed nautical styling for years, so much so it is ingrained in the brand.

Rocha’s own design style meshes power and delicacy, and she blended the two influences together in a balanced way, putting her own spin on the iconic marinière stripes, satin corsets, and cone-shaped bras.

One of the most impactful things to come down the runway could only be the brainchild of Rocha, taking the nautical inspiration to new heights with sailor’s hats.

But, these were no ordinary sailor’s hats – made from a structured satin in muted pastels, and a bit of added bling with jewels, ribbons and bows, these hats exude a youthful and playful femininity, whilst also giving an aura of power authority.

Nautical Stripes

Chunky navy and white stripes are the epitome of nautical fashion. This trend seems to come out to play every summer – and this year is no different. Garments in these stripes are timeless pieces that provide a little oomph to any outfit, without going overboard with colour or prints. In other words, its effortless luxury.

As wide leg pants are very in right now, why not pair a fitted nautical striped crew neck tee with a pair of white, wide leg trousers? Linen will work well over the summer, but white jeans are a great alternative.

For extra nautical vibes, opt for a pair of high waisted trousers with gold button details (just don’t forget to ‘French tuck’ your tee for added texture) and pair with those fishermen’s sandals we mentioned earlier!

And there you have it – just a few ways that nautical-inspired styles are arising in luxury stores and runways. With these ideas in mind, all that’s left to do is try on a few different styles to see what takes your fancy, and which variations work best for you.
