Anyone for Stripes?

Anyone for Stripes?

Every year I want to dress up like a sailor and spend the summer months drinking Pimms on Brighton beach and hiring boats in the British countryside or along the coast (or at the very least a pedalo on the Serpentine...) which means it's time for my annual stripes splurge. If you're going to go down the nautical route, it makes sense to go for a brand steeped in authentic marine heritage and MUSTO - set up by an Olympic sailor in 1964 - ticks all the right boxes.

Stripy nautical fashion by British heritage brand MUSTO

I ordered the Stripy Barrel in navy/ cream cotton twill with canvas straps and tan leather trims to go with my dozens of navy minidresses.  I also got the Stripe Summer Tee in magenta/ white with a deep v neck in a casual cotton and jersey mix, which I plan to wear tucked into my black sequin miniskirt and new patent leather loafers... 

And last but not least, for the day after any Pimms on the beach or Champagne on the boat activities, the Stripe Oth Slouch Hoody in navy/ white with a hidden kangaroo pouch and batwing sleeves in soft loopback cotton for serious comfort.
