THE NAUTICAL T-SHIRT

Add some simple statement stripes and gain an outfit twist that will see you through from summer to autumn in style, says M&S menswear editor William Oliver

Effortlessly cool nautical stripes have been the go-to look for a host of style setters and taste makers for decades, from James Dean to Pablo Picasso and Ryan Gosling. Back on trend again, it’s a look that works as well in spring and autumn as it does in summer. Cue this navy and white T-shirt, which offers an easy wardrobe update. A regular-fit version worn with a pair of shorts adds a creative touch to a laid-back look, while a slim-cut style teamed with chinos and an unlined cotton blazer is great for refined off-duty dressing. Either way, be sure to keep your accessories simple – tortoiseshell sunglasses and a classic watch, for example – and let the top’s simple style come through.
