Classic Nautical Style, Over 40.

Classic Breton Top & Navy Culottes | Nautical Style, over 40

Breton stripes (and nautical styling) is traditionally associated with Spring and early Summer.
However, I've noticed that stripes have been creeping into other seasons 'new' ranges.
Stripes are for all seasons.

Today's outfit would be perfect for a spring day, but it did not look odd or out of place in early autumn.

And why should it?
There are fewer and fewer "Rules" when it comes to style and fashion these days.
Anything goes.
If you like a breton stripe then wear it!

Classic Breton Top & Navy Culottes | Nautical Style, over 40

This look is pretty classic in style... especially for me!
{Culottes are becoming a classic aren't they?}

Tailored culottes, and a striped breton top, in cream and navy.
No bold colour clashes.
No pattern mixing.
No animal prints.
No splashes of brightness.
Just a classic look.

I've paired this simple look with a pair of classic brogues, and a navy top-handle bag.
Totally fuss-free dressing.
A tiny dash of colour comes from my necklace.... I couldn't resist colour all-together!

  7. A striped top is probably attractive and broadening in just the right area of a woman's body.. Stripes are a classic look for a reason eh?
    By the way, having just finished reading the great photographic tips on the latest post of Not Dressed as Lamb I feel I must tell you that i think your editing is terrific! YOUR shots are not boring. Windblown and goosebumpy, perhaps but that adds to the realistic vibe!
