Have your say

We’ve all got nautical pieces lurking in our wardrobes from previous summers.

Give your red, white and blue staples a new lease of life with some quick and easy styling hints:

n Glam up a Breton top and slim-fit jeans with a towering pair of red heels for a glamourous pop of nautical-themed colour.

n Take a cue from the Valentino catwalk and belt your nautical stripe dresses with a ribbon bow to add a retro edge.

n Update a tired pair of lace-up summer shoes with cream rope for a classic nautical feel.

n Colour blocking is big news this season. Experiment with mixing up red, white and blue pieces to create a nautical masterpiece.

n Add a striped scarf, bag or blazer to an outfit for an instant nautical update.
