One of the biggest swimwear trends this year is nautical. Now we’re talking classic solids and stripes in navy, red and white with just a hint of detailing. Even if you’re not spending any time on deck this summer, nautical swimwear is perfect to find that classic look whether you’re relaxing on the beach or looking stylish by the pool.
Fresh, classic and always flattering; with our tips on nautical swimwear for this season, you’ll be looking effortlessly chic.
It’s all about vertical stripes. When going nautical, you need to think casual while bringing an element of style to your look. Opt for a classic red or blue horizontal striped bikini. The colour is one thing; but you also need to think about what flatters your shape. To get your curves in order, choose a bikini with boned sides, and to accentuate your bust, think about something with integrated padded cups.
Remember, getting the nautical style is important, but to really brim with confidence this summer it’s essential to buy for your shape.
For fuller coverage, while still hitting the right style notes, choose a nautical inspired one piece. It’s not all about the stripes either. Opting for something in black or dark navy blue will ensure a flattering look, while choosing a swimsuit with a deep neckline and just a couple of white stripes around the neck will just hint at the nautical theme.
As the nautical look is all about feeling comfortable yet stylish, opt for something with shapewear inserted into the tummy and elasticised under the bust to really showcase your feminine figure.
If the nautical look takes your fancy this summer, then don’t just stop at your swimwear. There are loads of accessories you can add to really complete the look. Choose from a variety of nautical inspired fashion items including striped flats, ballerinas, boat shoes or wedges, anchor and starfish jewellery, and rope accessories.
By stylishly mixing and matching these items, coming in the classic navy, red and white, you can find that casual, fresh and chic nautical summer look.
