Our second style orientated blog of the season pairs the Lighthouse Ocean shirt with comfortable, coast appropriate pieces for everyday adventures.
Available in Stripe Oxford, Soft Denim and Dot Oxford, this aptly named shirt is sure to blend with the sea and sky blues of Summer. Its practical, soft, and durable, and we hope you love it as much as we do!
To kick off our style guide, the least pastel of Ocean shirts: Dot Oxford.
Wear this relaxed fit shirt over a simple navy tee (we got this one from Oasis), drawing attention to its delicate dotty pattern by creating a contrast to the block colour. We’ve paired it with some straight leg, mid blue denim jeans (also from Next), keeping it casual by straying from skinnies that can often be uncomfortable for all day wear.
To add a pop of colour, and some fun femininity, we’ve gone for some soft pink suede espadrille sandals from Office. We think this colour looks beautiful alongside dark blues and navy! Complete with an on trend straw bag - this one stands out for us because of its unconventional shape.
Throw a pair of tortoise shell look Topshop sunglasses into this bag, along with everything else you’ll need for a day out, and you’re ready to go!
Next up, Soft Denim.
This look is perfect for the beach; be that at home, or further afield.
Pair your 100% cotton Lighthouse shirt with some navy chino shorts for an easy, yet lovely look. Slip on these super practical Office nubuck sandals in grey to lift the heavier tone of the shorts and compliment the soft blue of the Ocean.
We’ve kept it nautical in the handbag department with an oversized striped beach bag, big enough for suncream and snacks for the whole family. Again, no beach ready outfit is complete with a pair of sunglasses, here, we’ve gone with our favourites from Topshop.
We think the Ocean really stands out in this look!
Finally, the Stripe Oxford.
This shirt is classic, yet contemporary. Our designer has added some distressed wooden buttons for a little casual detailing.
Keep it crisp with a plain white t-shirt or vest, we’ve gone for this textured number from Next. Pair with some denim shorts, like these Next boys shorts in a dark blue. The navy-blue Lighthouse brand detailing subtly stands out from the soft blue of the Oxford Stripe with this colour of denim!
We’ve paired this look with some ever faithful wedges from Office to style it up, but you could just as easily pair this look with some similar flats, and have gone for the same straw bag we loved from look one. In fact, we think straw looks super summery against any of our Ocean shirts!
The trusty Topshop tortoise shell sunglasses again complete the look.
So there you have it, three different ways to style the Lighthouse Ocean shirt!
Try mixing and matching different pieces from these looks, or improvise with pops of colour from t-shirt and sandal combinations, to add your own personality to these Summer ready styles!
We think the Ocean shirt is the perfect piece for layering, or wearing as a stand-out piece on its own. The classic easy-worn colours and shape, chosen by our designer, render it versatile enough for styling up or down.
