Light blue, navy and white – these are the colors we think of when we think of sailing ships, the sea and an infinite sky. A touch of red sets accents. For casual maritime fashion, light fabrics and easy cuts with a casual look are just the thing.
Style maritime looks
When spring arrives, the jackets start to stay in the closet. Currently the trendy oversized look sweatshirt with drop shoulders and stripes fits perfect to this trend. This comfortable and effortless style creates a easy maritime look.
We like to combine loose tops, beautiful print shirts and sweaters with jeans, comfortable cotton pants or jeggings. Crop or ankle pants work well in the warmer months. Two-tone stripes, for example in navy white or red white, always work for the maritime look.
If your headed to a special event on a boat or near the sea, you can create a very feminine look with a dress or skirt:
The right jacket for maritime styling
When sailing and generally staying out on the sea, it can get windy and even rainy within a few minutes, even in sunny weather. A softshell jacket is perfect solution. It protects against moisture and keeps you warm. When it’s windy but not rainy, a parka is a good choice for maritime styling. A Frisian jacket is another alternative.
In warmer temperatures, a sporty vest protects against the wind.
Accessories make the outfit perfect
A knotted scarf on the neck or head makes a big difference in a maritime look. Here you can choose red and of course stripe patterns! The splash of color is provides for a very fresh, cool outfit. An alternative to scarves are bags and hats as accessories.
Another good choice: a sporty sneaker or slip-on – preferably in white – instead of pumps.
