Now your headphones can match not only your outfit but also that glorious podcast you’re listening to now that music is essentially free. I’m loving these nautical themed blue headphones (a collaboration between Brooklyn scenester Amy Gunther and artist Dennis Mcnett) by WESC who seem to have cornered the market in cute Fisher-Price looking headphones.

With the sun constantly teasing us in the UK, it’s about time we started looking at Autumn/Winter collections. First up will be APC, who have a distinctly winter-sailor feeling, continuing on from their SS collection. They also surprisingly make Ugg-like boots look wearable. Check after the jump for more looks and accessories.
If, for some bizarre reason, you haven’t hopped onto the Madras train yet we are still offering alternatives. Alternatives that don’t stray outside of the nautical look, but alternatives nonetheless.
We’ve featured a John Smedley version of this polo a while back but let’s face it – you’re not going to spend £122 on a polo shirt. This Full Circle polo is pretty much identical, I haven’t counted the stripes or anything, but I’d guess they’d be around the same amount. The FC one also has a pen pocket, something the Smedley one doesn’t even have. And to top it all off, it’s only £38.
Trench coats aren’t hard to come by nowadays but relaxed trenches are another story. You may have been swayed the Phillip Lim trench we featured – until you saw the price. Don’t worry, This B Store trench is more affordable and, dare I say it, better quality.
The lightweight material and roll up sleeves make this a perfect summer item. The fact that its £199 -instead of Phillip Lim’s sale price of £337 – is merely a bonus. It would match well with a nautical look and suits those long days when you need a versatile jacket.
Bags are usually available in muted tones as people seek to match it with as many items as possible. In those times when you want a bit of colour contrast you may need a bag that stands out a little more. That’s where this Steven Alan bag comes in.
It’s surprisingly versatile for an orange bag, lending itself to any splash of colour based outfit. The size of the bag means it’s best for either a night over or a heavy shopping trip and it looks particularly fetching with the nautical look. It’s available from Oki-Ni for £99.
With big bold checks being all the rage, it can be easy to forget about the subtler check shirt. This Filippa K shirt has checks so small they’re near invisible from a distance. The matching options with this shirt are vast, as it’s smart enough to wear to a (casual) office and could also fit in well with the nautical theme, should you be wishing to take on that look this summer.
They also have the added bonus of being on sale, going for $142 instead of $189. It’s not sample sale prices, but it’s still a good deal for a well made shirt.
Whilst leather bags are great and all, there’s just something very un-summery about them. The material is pretty heavy and doesn’t cope with hot weather very well. Canvas, on the other hand, is a lighter material and copes much better in the sun. If you’ve been trying to complete a couple of looks, then look no further this Penfield oxon bag.
Available in college professor-like brown and nautical stripes, these bags have the added bonus of being able to complete two separate looks. If you’ve been slowly building on your nautical look, then this will the piece that will finish it off and all for a pretty reasonable £50.
When stylists create looks, they often make
un-wearable pieces workable. This trick of the eye usually leads to a
collection full of underwhelming individual pieces and great looks. A.P.C avoid
this problem with their nautical-themed S/S 2008 collection. As well as having
eye catching overall looks, the collections also full of wearable individual
pieces. The pick of the bunch is this leather
strapped weekend bag.
If bags screamed, this would yell “Match me
with anything Brown or Blue!! I’m versatile!! Don’t forget to wear brown shoes!
Or blue! Don’t forget, I’m versatile!” In case you were wondering, the bag
would yell every statement because it was excited. I mean, it is the first bag
to ever speak, at least to my incredible knowledge. The bag costs £105 and is
available from A.P.C’s website.
