Spring and Summer are great times to embrace nautical inspired looks. The colours, red, white and blue are a perfect fit for all things nautical. Crisp white is great for this time of year and with stripes being so trendy you can always find a great striped shirt or cardigan to bring the look together.
Nautical Inspiration for Spring: Nautical always seems to work well when you want to be both casual and chic. I like the relaxed nature of this look. And the best part is that each of the pieces is very mix and matchable with other items in my wardrobe.
The Nautical Look: For this version of the nautical look I have put together a pair of red cotton ankle length pants from Target, with a plain white t-shirt and a light-weight blue and white striped cardigan. Layers are important both for Spring and for being seaside and going nautical! to keep it casual I have worn my black and white quilted flats (not quite navy and white, but they’ll do), my big red Guess handbag and a gold multi-chain necklace. I think the necklace adds to the nautical look by being reminiscent of large chains attached to anchors.
Oh, and you must have a great pair of sunnies when you are running around. This pair from D&G.
The Fashion Mister thinks it looks more French than nautical. Either way, I like it because it is perfect for showing off my spring stripes! I’ll have to see how much more nautical inspiration I can come up with.
