With plenty of bells and whistles (literally) on much of the nautical fodder on this Summer's high street, it can often be off putting for many fans of classic fashion. But there are ways to incorporate a nautical retro theme into your wardrobe without all the fuss, with pieces like this Foldover Playsuit from Fletcher by Lyell.
The well tailored fit gives the silhouette a figure-hugging fifties feeling, while the swooping back and structural neckline add a unique nautical flavour. The contrasting black colour and white piping provide angular shaping to the piece, creating a classic and lasting retro piece.
It's available now from Urban Outfitters UK for £48, exclusively online.
