If we took away one thing from Pirates of the Caribbean 4 (other than the fact that we’d let Captain Jack kidnap us any day) it’s that nautical is still a sure fire style winner this summer.

But a pirate’s life (and wardrobe) isn’t quite perfect, so we’ll be scaling it back to sweet seaside nautical style – and why not try these French Connection Lindsey stripe shorts if you want to jump aboard too.

Some of our fave SS11 trends are key features in these shorts – we love the high waisted paperbag style and twisted rope effect belt.

The shape promises to be super flattering dressed up or down, but we think these shorts are best suited to flats and a slouchy cotton tee.

For a fully fledged nautical look, make like the French Connection model and team with a Breton top – the key to trying it at home is to keep stripes simple and similar, but not too matchy.

See you aboard the great ship style!
