Spring ahoy! Daffodils are blooming, daylight hours are drawing out and that sweet smell of fresh cut grass is making a comeback, which means one thing only – the great outdoors calls. So whether you’re relaxing in hammocks with your summer crew, eyeing up the surf beachside with sand between your toes or getting out in the water for a good dose of vitamin sea, it’s time to embrace all things nautical with some fresh threads from our newest brand – SWELL. Stripes, blue and white colourways and quirky screen prints – especially with a subtle nod toward seafaring life – are sure to keep your style above board this season. And with sun, sand and surf within touching distance, there’s no time like the present to channel those oceanic vibes.
SWELL Nautical: Men
Nautical doesn’t have to be all about looking like you’ve just stepped off a Destroyer – which is why we’ve chosen stand-out stylish pieces that offer a subtle take on the trend. The Long Beach long sleeve tee is perfect to throw on after a surf sesh or those summer evenings as the temperature begins to softly bite – style with boardies, lounge pants and denims alike because this tee is the ultimate offering in multi-styling. And who doesn’t want a crustacean on a tee? You’ll need the Montauk placement print t-shirt for that. Then complete the entire look with comfortable cargo shorts and flip flops for those moments you spend on land and those rare occasions where bare feet make way for shoes. Anchor down those key pieces and the sea will never feel too far away.

SWELL Nautical: Women
When did the trusty stripe ever sail out of style? That’s right, it didn’t. Which is why we’ve chosen these stand out stripes so you can nail the nautical trend this season. Narrow stripes, wide stripes, a mixture of both and zig-zag stripes; whatever your style, there’s a stripe out there to suit. Featuring a narrow stripe, the Nambucca bikini will have you covered beachside while the Belmont long sleeve tee features a thin navy stripe set against a wide white stripe and will have your back on those breezy summer days. Stay classic with the wide stripe, figure hugging Regatta dress or mix it up with a zig-zag stripe on the Elettra beach bag for a nod towards razzle dazzle camouflage of the early 20th century. So, from barefoot strolls on the beach at dawn to sipping a cocktail on the promenade at dusk, invest in the staple stripe and you’ll be sure to voyage into spring in style.
