Fashion Trend: Anchors Away

 Nauticals are back!  The trend we just can’t seem to get enough of!  A classic Spring/Summer staple. 

Nautical clean lines create a crisp elegant look. Bringing to mind Yachting, Beach Clubs, Coco Chanel and the French Rivera. 

Come aboard with anchors, sailor pants, pin-up style wedges, rope details and stripes. 

This season designers have  reinvented nautical with thinner stripes and pops of color.   Selecting pieces with stripes can be difficult.  Don’t go too thick or you’ll look outdated.  Horizontal stripes aren’t the best on everyone.  For those that are a bit wider try a vertical stripe and don’t go crazy!  If you have stripes on top don’t wear stripes on the bottom!

Accessories can be a lifesaver!  Add a big chunky anchor necklace, a bag with rope details, huge white  sunglasses and round toe red heels or wedges!

Remember to use restraint.  Think classic elegance, you don’t want to look like you are wearing a costume.

Here is my favorite Nautical layout I’ve done..
