Apparently, with fashion, it's the ability to unpretentiously tease about what a badass you are. There's just something to be said about wearing a skull and crossbones emblem that allows you to be a self-proclaimed rebel of sorts. Consider the Sanita pirate print professional clog - it's definitely not all frills and bows. The pirate print is edgy and just a bit rough and tough for that swashbuckling style without going overboard!
The dominance of pirate and nautical inspired fashion keeps coming back again and again. Take for example Jean Paul Gaultier’s runway at Paris Fashion Week, where again the pirate look dominated the collection. The show featured an array of pirate couture with pinstripe fabrics and the models with wild, untamed manes, their locks appearing as though they were tousled up by an ocean breeze.
British model Lily Cole donned a pirate’s outfit for the Jean Paul Gaultier spring/summer 2008 collection.
