Ahoy there Domestic Slutettes. It's time to set sail on another Something Old, Something New. This fortnight I'm looking at one of my all-time favourite retro looks: nautical fashion. Inspired by the slight bit of sunshine we've had, I'm dreaming of skipping off to the seaside.
Nautical fashions are a firm favourite with repro brands, where you be a saucy sailor, in the likes of the Captain Dress from Bettie Page Clothing, or show off your sea legs in Vivien of Holloway's 40s-style slacks. Here's five more shipshape styles.
Anchors away with a very traditional sailor look to begin with: blue with a white trim, and an anchor motif to hammer that theme home. These two virtually match each other on price as well as looks, though you'll need to pay a bit more to get the 1960s dress from the States. The Pop Boutique dress also comes in red, for a attention-grabbing twist on the look.
