Never Go Wrong Nautical

There’s always a new trend popping up every season but one style that seems to make a comeback each summer is the Nautical look.  



It’s crisp, clean and always sophisticated.  And it's also probably one of the easiest looks to pull off with a few simple tips.  

1.  Start with stripes, the most iconic being sailor inspired navy and white. 

2. Add bold color.  Classic nautical colors are navy, red, and white but I like to add an unexpected one instead like green, turquoise or mustard for a more modern look. 

3. Keep it simple.  Think classic items like a simple tank or crew neck tee with flat front shorts or wide leg trousers.   You want to steer clear of anything too elaborate, no ruffles or harem pants here!  

4.  Accessorize wisely.  Adding some fun elements like anchors or ropes can look cute but too much and you’ll look like you are wearing a costume. 



I’m headed to the beach this weekend and plan to take this outfit I wore on vacation with me.  What better place to channel your inner sailor than seaside.
