The transition period, the months that separate winter from spring, are perfect for looking up the nautical-style clothes to wear with the arrival of summer.

How the marine style came about
Before delving into the novelties of the new year, it is important to go back in time and find out how the marine style appeared. How long have it been in the fashion world?
The first to experiment with sailor fashion were members of a royal family: in 1846, Queen Victoria of England commissioned a sailor uniform for her son Edward VII (four years old), which faithfully reproduced the official one used at the time. When the prince wore his suit, the entire British elite was fascinated by the stylistic choice and - as often happens in history - began to incorporate references to nautical fashion in their looks.
Before long, the popularity of nautical fashion moved from Britain abroad.
In the 1920s, the sailor collar began to gain popularity in women's dresses, which had a low waist and the famous collar.
In 1917 Coco Chanel took the nautical style to an even higher level, introducing wide flared trousers and waistcoats into fashion. Hollywood divas were inspired by this style and began to wear very particular stylized sailor dresses, which then inspired modern prints.
