Nautical Trends (For the Guys)

By  | 

One of the hottest trends this summer is the Nautical Look – this “Boating” or “Sailor” inspired style goes hand in hand with the current Laidback Preppy vibe that’s trending in SA and it is a great summer look for guys that likes to look stylish and well groomed.

Here are a few items you will need to pull off this trendy Nautical look:

Striped T’s – Striped T’s and shirts are essential to pull off the Nautical style

Chino Trousers – Pants and Shorts are all about semi formal trends when it comes to putting together your laidback preppy style. Chino shorts keep it casual, while a pair of long Chino trousers will create a more dressed up appearance.
