One of the numerous advantages of running a Real Estate & Yachting agency in Mykonos, is getting to spend a lot of time on board luxurious yachts! Therefore, my wardrobe essentials include a lot of Breton marinières and other striped garments. But again, that would still have happened even if I had a different job! 🙂 The greatest formula for a nautical chic look is navy blue, white and stripes! And if you opt for a more polished, fashionable look, a pop of red (lips, scarf or any accessory etc) will work like a charm!
The key elements of a nautical chic style:
The Breton Marinière
My favorite equation for stripe placement is 20 percent of the darker color, and 80 percent of the lighter. I wore my marinière with these Zimmermann culottes as an alternative to the sailor pants, a pair of sliders and glammed it up with a few minimal jewelries. The bag of the day was this Mulbrery clutch which we forgot to include in the photos of course! 🙂
What about you? Do you like the French sailor shirt and nautical chic attire? Let me know in the comments below.
