Some fashion trends come and go, but one look that’s always stood the test of time is nautical.

It was a favourite fashion trend of Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Onassis and several modern-day style icons can’t resist stripes and sailor girl chic either.

Versatile, easy to wear and effortlessly stylish, here are 10 inspiring ways to work the trend, plus our pick of the best new-season nautical buys in stores.

Brought to you by Table Eight

The Duchess of Cambridge. Keep things simple and chic with a Breton top, navy blazer and gold detailing.

Amal Clooney. For a show-stopping look team your nautical ensemble with a wide-brimmed hat.

Miranda Kerr. Add a pop of colour to classic stripes with a statement scarf.

Pippa Middleton. Nautical is a great trans-seasonal trend. For cooler months, try a dark jumper with white stripes.

Olivia Palermo. Don’t be afraid to double up. You can never have too many stripes!

Sarah Jessica Parker. A knitted sailor-girl dress is the perfect mix of smart-casual.

Jessica Alba. A statement blazer is an easy way to update your favourite LBD.

Nicole Kidman. Nautical doesn’t have to mean navy and white, a white and gold look is just as stylish.

Alessandro Ambrosio. Confused about which shoes to wear with white jeans? Espadrilles always work well with the nautical trend.
