NAUTICAL CHIC
FOR GIRLS

Add a touch of Riviera chic to her wardrobe with this nautical top – it’s a classic kids’ look that’s lasted for generations

Kidswear has trends that come and go but some looks stick around from generation to generation – and the nautical top is one of them. I remember my mum dressing us in them as children and my daughter often wears one on holiday. This Autograph version has all the hallmarks of the nostalgic look – the oversized square collar is trimmed with a double stripe and decorated with a miniature bow, making it suitably Riviera. But look closely and there are fashionable additions: a central pleat creates a more flattering shape and the neat gold pin is a pretty touch. It looks good with jeans, shorts or a skirt – and, who knows, perhaps it’s this versatility that explains its enduring popularity.
