We all attribute nautical style to France - but did you know that it actually originates from England with Queen Victoria? The classic style began in the mid 19th century when she dressed her children in sailor-inspired garments. 

A 1931 Vogue cover shows a woman in full bell-bottom navy slacks with a red, white, and blue striped top designed for lounging rather than rough seas.

 

Let's not forget when Coco Chanel made the style a staple by rocking the classic striped Breton marinière on The French Riviera.
