There’s something about nautical style that never goes out of style. The classic colour combo of red, white and blue, bronze and timber, coiled ropes, bad-boy pirates (arrr!) and of course, this year’s hottest motif – the anchor. Get on board.
Set your fashion heart afloat this summer with our top picks for your home, yourself, and your littlies. First up: the little squirts!
Australian swimwear brand White Soda releases their summer range with fresh designs to inject some seafaring flair for those sizzling beach days. Made from chlorine resistant stretch PBT material, incorporating lightweight and breathable fabric technology, deck your kids in the highest possible sun protection rating of 50+. Available in sizes 00-8, check out the range of Rash Tops (from $37.95); Briefs (from $21.95) and Shorts ($45.95). The girls can rock it in One-Piece togs ($37.95); Tankini Tops ($37.95); and Girls Briefs ($21.95). View the full range at www.whitesoda.com.au.
We’re loving the Bold Nautical and Nautical Sea Breeze range for boys and the Pink Lemonade design for girls (think bright pink and white stars – does it get any cuter? And with adjustable straps, these swimmers may just be the most comfy togs your little sailor will own).
Get your sea legs ready to rock the hottest togs from Rhythm. One pieces are BACK following bikini domination over the last few years. Our pick? The You Me & the Sea design ($69.99 from www.rhythmlivin.com).
And you’d have to be living under a barnacle-encrusted rock not to know that anchors have replaced pineapples as the motif du jour. Deck your fingers in the dainty twisted anchor ring in sterling silver from Six Things ($29.95).
Then spruce up your walls with the gorgeous flags from Ahoy Trader. These rustic tile flags, handmade in Byron Bay by Jai Vasicek are definitely on our wish-list for Santa. We’re loving the Anchor & Spot Flag, and the Little Mermaid design ($150 each from www.ahoytrader.com).
Clear the decks and hoist the sail, landlubbers. Nautical style is here to stay – jump aboard.
