For the first time the marine style emerged in the 19th century in the UK.Not the least role in its formation was played by the brave navy, having influenced in the beginning on the man's style, and then on the female one.

Initially, representatives of the royal family wore clothing similar to the form of naval officers. Later, the trend toward style spread among the common people, gradually embracing the whole world.

At the beginning of the XX century, Coco Chanel was one of the main admirers of this direction. In the resort town of Deauville, she opened a fashionable clothing store, which quickly gained popularity among local women of fashion who prefer elegant but at the same time comfortable and practical outfits.

Other famous fashion designers also did not bypass this style.

The marine direction is constantly supplying new ideas in the design of its accessories.

  • In the marine style, myths, fairy tales, legends are also popular. Accessories can be made in the form of water, mermaid, siren, ship, octopus, Poseidon, etc. Also, clothes can be decorated with prints of a similar theme;
  • Large sunglasses and ragbag-torba will be a worthy final touch of this style;
  • Nautical style rarely goes without hats. The thematically executed wide-brimmed hats, captain's caps, headdresses, outwardly similar to those of officers and employees of the navy will suit them.

Marine style is always relevant. It would seem, what can surprise a banal stripe? But no, designers come up with incredible styles and combinations, beautiful accessories and spectacular shoes. The main thing is that it is popular not only in the resort. In a big city and on the periphery, it's as if he hints that its owner has visited the seashore or is about to be ready for a dizzying journey. I love this fresh style at the end of summer. It is good for shopping, meetings with friends, yacht rides, walks near the sea:)
