Get dressed with serious swag of the swashbuckling kind
Our appetite for all things fashion means that, once again, we’re looking to an unlikely wardrobe muse for inspiration – and we’ve found it in the Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 costume cupboard. Yes, if you want to be on trend RN, Captain Jack knows where it’s at. Ruffled shirts, mismatched earrings and corset-style waist belts are some of spring’s standout buys. Philosophy was inspired by 80s film The Blue Lagoon, while Zimmermann’s flouncy dresses more than resemble a sea bandit’s uniform. Look for floaty skirts with handkerchief hems – worn on the hip, like you did in the noughties – styled with wide belts or midriffbaring tops. This trend isn’t for the yellow-bellied, so ease yourself in with a leather corset worn over an oversized white shirt, finished with your jeans and some odd earrings. Trust us, plunder this swagger, stat.
