Aye, aye, Capt’n – Striped shirt and white trousers

In every season the fashion industry represents us the nautical trend to sail with them into the summer. The striped shirt is a staple and it doesn’t even need to be blue.

The striped shirt

In the mid 19th century French sailors were provided with a blue / white striped shirt to make it easier to spot a sailor in the sea when they fell overboard. Quickly the design with the stripes found its place in the fashion. Yachts and striped clothing in white/blue and white/red belong together like day and night.

How to style a striped shirt

I decided to style the shirt (striped shirt similar herevery maritime and sportive. Together with a white trouser by Marco o polo (10% discount code) and Converse Chucks it is a casual and relaxed look. So far so basic. The glam will be provided from the little cute designer handbag and scarf. If you put a blazer on, it is a perfectly elegant and sophisticated outfit you could enter every restaurant at the French Riviera.

Replace the white trouser with a white or blue skirt the look will appear more representable immediately.

Wear high heels instead the sneaker will transform the look as well.

To find a collection of three Opel Kadett parked next to each other is very rare. I had to include these Oldtimers.

    Thanks so much for sharing the origin of the striped sailor top! I had no idea that it’s purpose was to easily identify a “man overboard”. You look so lovely and the river setting is so appropriate given your writing topic.
