By the seashore

IT'S SPRING and almost time to head to the beach. This summer, fashion has a wonderful nautical theme.

There are stripes, shell details, pearls; in fact, all things that evoke the seaside are on-trend.

The big colours include navy and royal blue and lots of fresh white.

Fabrics include crisp cottons and lovely linens.

It's everything we love about summer, fresh, light, breezy and evocative of the beach.

Nautical clothing doesn't have to consist of just horizontal stripes and boat necks.

The sailor theme is turning up in lots of cute ways in ready to wear, dresses, skirts, tops and swimwear, which can all be found at local stores now.

Make waves this year in your seashore fashions.
