Dark Denim | The Nautical Way

GAP Pink Chunky Knit Oversized JumperIt's easy to fall into the trap of thinking nautical influences only apply to warm weather fashion, and sure, I'll hold my hands up to bringing out all the breton in summer.  But why stop there?!  Lately, I've been thinking about how best to bring the vibe into the colder months as well - because let's be real, it goes far beyond being a trend.  It's a solid, season-after-season option to keep in your fall rotation, like the timeless camel coat and other Autumn wardrobe heroes!  The question is, how to opt in while still keeping it subtle?  My vote goes to themed dark denim.

Fashion Blog Karen Millen Indigo Nautical Denim SkirtI hear you, 'themed' dark denim isn't something you stumble across everyday, but a little bit of digging will unearth some total gems that with the right styling can deliver that nautical pop.  This high-waisted and nautical themed denim skirt is by Karen Millen and also comes in skinny jean form.  Another option would be to find dungarees in dark denim and whip out the breton tops you've packed away, ready to layer underneath!  Baker Boy hats are still going strong, though already you can see them being replaced by berets and wide-brimmed felt hats.  The good news?  Because of this, they seem more 'themed' to the look.  Fab!

As always, I'm really looking forward to reading your thoughts on this look!  I'd also love to hear whether you have any ideas of your own for bringing nautical styling into an Autumnal wardrobe?  Spread that inspo! 

With love,

  1. so stylish ! xx

  2. You definitely make a very convincing argument for nautical style in the fall Gabrielle! This outfit is so chic and fabulous! I'm loving the details on that skirt and your styling is totally on point! You don't have to tell me twice to break out my breton stripes. I wear them all year round :D

  3. Great look! Love the contrast of a chunky knit sweater with the sleek skirt, so chic!

  4. Such a great idea for introducing nautical vibes into autumn! Since denim is already blue (generally), I think you could add some dark stripes too.
    Loving that pink knit!

  5. I love dark denim, especially for the winter. Karen Millen do fab pieces don't they - I've got a pair of light jeans from them that I love x

  6. I love this outfit on you! I'm such a fan of pairing baggy jumpers with something more fitted on the bottom - and a big yes to carrying nautical styling into A/W too!

  17. I AGREE! Dark denim is timeless and chic. I love a good nautical theme as well, so I think this outfit is fantastic. I love that you had fun with your accessories as well. Those boots! It's an all around great look. I'm a lot more boring when it comes to a nautical theme. Lots of cream and navy and various stripes.

  20. I love nautical influences! I think breton tops can be worn all year round, maybe as jumpers or with thicker materials in the autumn/winter! This skirt is super pretty, I love the buttons - anything with gold buttons on it looks very nautical indeed, and that's the little detail that makes the outfit. Your jumper looks so cosy as well, I should head to Gap and check out their autumn collection!
