TRENDS - Marvel at Maritime

The nautical theme has managed to stay in stores for quite some time and is set to survive yet another season. Topshop's newest collection is full of sailor details, red and white stripes, naval brass accessories, blazers and more. Wide leg jeans also fit well into this theme.

As for accessories you will find New Look to be full of Maritime inspired jewellery at rock bottom prices, so copying the look needn't cost a fortune. A piece of thick rope will work as a belt or as handles for a bag.

Designers are still loving it too as the trend was represented in the catwalk shows of Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier and Tommy Hilfiger. There even seems to be a bit of Pirate thrown in, but my suggestion is to leave that to the most daring (and fancy dress parties).
