Fashion trends come and go, that's just the way it is. Even so, there is one look that stood out the test of time and that is nautical. We're talking about smart everyday ensemble that puts emphasis on navy and white stripes and sometimes all white in crisp linen or cotton. Not to forget, decorative buttons and tailored cut shirting - a great element to wear in rotation.
The nautical style takes inspiration from the sea, bright skies, seamanship, and sailor's uniforms. Going back to its origin; the naval uniform was by birth a symbol of the powerful and loyal British Royal Navy. Another strong influence was the French naval uniform which then being brought into the modern-day fashion as a la mariène style by the revolutionary stylist, Coco Chanel. Years later, fashion geniuses all over the world incorporated the seafaring style into their own collection.
