How to wear nautical print this summer and not look lost at sea

If you’ve always been a lover of the sea and all its creatures, you’re going to love wearing nautical prints this summer season.

When you think of summer, the beach and azure waters are what come to mind. Although our beach vacays may be on hold for now, it doesn’t mean you can’t show off your love for the beautiful ocean with a killer ensemble. It seems like the fashion world agrees with that assessment too. The Spring/Summer 2021 runway was filled with prints and emblems inspired by the ocean from maisons like Versace, Burberry, and more. Do we think this is the next ‘it’ trend after the tropical prints? Yes, we think so. From ripples to seashells prints and the creatures of the deep, we love it all. If you’re planning to model the trend yourself, you can scroll down to see what we’ve curated for you to wear out and about once the lockdown is over.

Missing the ocean? This deep-blue retro-inspired asymmetrical skirt is just what you need to be carefree this summer. With the romantic frills and vibrant ripple graphic, throw on a neutral-coloured top, like a halter-neck or a crop top, to balance it out. Other fancy touches like dainty gold jewels and strappy sandals will finish this ensemble perfectly.

Here’s something subtle to start if you’re into everything pastels this season. While the print does remind us of the romantic curves and lines of the traditional batik prints, having it on a swimsuit would make a unique print to have with your sarong when you’re by the pool. Grab your trusty tote bag and hat, then you’re set.

As a fuss-free option on your errands run, this boxy button-down shirt will make a great match with your denim jeans (in your choice of silhouette) and sandals. Not only it is relaxed; its versatility is what we love when you can switch it as outerwear too. Just wear a crop tee or tank top underneath for a lighter feel when it gets hot out there.
