The spring/summer 14' runways were high tide into the elements. For Prada's spring/summer mens collection the style modicum was wanderlust with looks abound in Hawaiian prints from collared shirts to mini suitcases.

Also resonating with the wanderlust theme was Dolce & Gabbana's spring/summer collection which featured topless models in addition to a select few models wearing skimpy swim trunks and matching tanks creating a gleeful image of what you'd hope to see ocean side at the beach.

Over to the women's side, Kenzo experimented with various layers of blue referencing impromptu notions of the sea.

Similarly,Chalayan captured the essence of nautical inspired themes with its spring/summer 2014 presentation.

Other than your standard anchor accessory here, and sailor hat there--the sea side trend can be primed with a arsenal ruled by blue.

Blue shades that run the spectrum from azure to navy to columbia blue are guaranteed to give real depth to the trend.

You can implement the sea trend without going overboard (you don't want to be mistaken for the Blue Man Crew!) with these top aquatic favorites...
