The Extreme Sailing Series starts in Oman this week, so raise the sails with seafaring style, says Penny Fray.
Marine mode seems to be a ubiquitous catwalk trend – and this season is no different with everyone from Michael Kors to Tommy Hilfiger indulging in colourful stripes.
While Muscat’s malls are currently overrun with Breton style t-shirts, blazers and anchor-themed accessories, why not add some individual flair to the look by experimenting with shapes, patterns and bold, clashing colours?
Try a shot of neon, embrace spots or just keep it preppy by teaming cropped trousers with a classic French top and boating shoes.
If you just want to flirt with the boating trend, statement jewellery with sea-themed emblems should do the trick.
