This music video combines true summer favorites: ’80s nautical fashion, tropical resort footage, and George Michael repeatedly tipping from his raft into a luxury pool. The piece plays a bit like a short film, with varied locations, plenty of comedy, and an ending with a twist. Cheers!

Yes, Splash is a movie about a mermaid who comes to New York City in search of the man of her dreams.

With the help of Etsy shop owners, you’ll then find a way to integrate this style into your wardrobe and home!
