All Aboard The New Nautical!

Sailor stripes are a staple of any stylista’s spring/summer wardrobe, but for 2016, it goes way beyond your trusty Breton top. Call it the VB effect, but ever since Posh stepped out in her own design striped culotte co-ord, we’ve been wanting in on the outfit action. And what do you know; the high street appears to have read our mind! There are stripy sets galore out there, from Simple Be’s oh-so VB wide stripes to Zara’s pyjama chic shirt and trews. Basically, they’re an instant outfit dream, and anything that makes getting ready in the morning that little bit easier is A-OK by us…



The smartest of the lot, Zara’s slim stripes and tailored shapes are totally desk-friendly. Just add a classic black blazer and some Beckham worthy courts and you’re ready for some boardroom business.
