Nautical Striped Dress

There are a few summer trends that just keep on coming back. The striped trend and nautical dress definitely falls into this category. Stripey clothes in blues and reds just make me thimk of being by the sea. As I grew up by the sea and spent much of my childhood sailing, this is definitely a look I feel comfortable in. My mother is particularly fond of this outfit and I recall many striped outfits from my childhood.
For a really stylish and easy to wear look, you can't go wrong with a well fitting pair of navy trousers or even jeans and a striped top. But some times I get the urge to wear the striped nautical trend in a new and fresh way and that is where this nautical striped dress by Motel Rocks comes in. A combination of different stripes and colours with a flared skirt and crossover back takes all that I love about the nautical trend, adds a bit of vintage style and makes it into something new for this year.
