Double Take on Marine Style

It’s hardly a surprise that once the first rays of sunshine come to cheer us up after a long cold or otherwise grey winter, the marine style emerges like by miracle in a lot of collections, from prêt-a-porter to couture. Well, we might know that fashion likes to play a lot with this theme, but it doesn’t make us to like it any less. At least not me.

What I like this year, is that the take on marine style has not been so literal, it’s more subtle, with interesting twists, playing with bold color combinations and sometimes marring also those at the first sight surprising. It’s not only blue and white anymore, but comes with green or orange strips or if it’s the classical white and blue, then with an added color attack by some edgy shade, like for example this spring’s trending yellow.

I had a shooting where I took a more city style angle on the marine look, something to go to the office with or stroll on the streets in a busy day, still looking and feeling comfy, but elegant. Pants and sleeveless shirt or a dress with that little scarf and yellow jacket allow you to feel dressed to a occasion in a number of situations, as they can always be accessorized according to the event and your mood.

Klassikaline meremehestiil on sellel kevadel muutunud põnevamaks. Sageli ei ole see enam üldse sinivalge, vaid triibud on hoopis oranžid või rohelised või kui räägime põhiosas klassikalisest sinivalgest kombinatsioonist, siis mõne aktsenti lisava värviga, näiteks sellel hooajal ülitrendika kollasega. Pildistasime minu seljas kahte komplekti, mis mängivad mereteemaga, kuid jäävad pigem ametlikuma linna- ja kontorirõiva mängumaale, lubades mitmeid erinevaid kombineerimisvõimalusi.
