Nautical Style: Smart-Casual Cruise

There's one classic spring/summer trend that always manifests itself on the catwalk and the high street in some shape or form - I'm talking about the nautical look. The classic colours of red, white and navy is constantly being recycled and reproduced.

Last year's take on the nautical theme was to incorporate plenty of navy and red patterning, mostly stripes and polka dots. This year, it's all about glossy blocks of colour and bold statement accessories accented with traditionally delicate, classic stripes. Personally, the way I like to wear nautical is smart-casual, dressed up with luxe accessories for a look I like to call 'smart casual cruise'.

Today, I've been putting together must-have investments for this season and I came across Viviene Westwood hi-gloss navy pumps and the Miu Miu white bow bag. These are just the kind of accessories that pull the look together. So here's my wish list for this season; the following pieces are versatile enough to work perfectly as part of any nautical ensemble and they're right on-trend.
