Hi, Dolls! Finally, our summer outing days are here! You can’t beat the feeling of the ocean breeze on a warm day, and what better way to dress for this season of sunny adventures than with the chic nautical look? Nautical stripes have a liveliness about them, regardless of being a simple combination of white, red, and/or blue that puts me in a good mood.
Halter crop tops are a must and the crochet top by Vika Gazinskaya is bold with its shades of bright red and royal blue. The white trim crop top accentuates the waist and is sure to give you that summer feeling. The high waisted, horizontal striped shorts from Forever 21 are a great staple piece to wear with a solid colored top. The relaxed fit shorts feature buttons along the front pockets and mock pockets in the back.
All Saints brought the cool factor with its casual tee by adding playful shoulder slits. The vintage wash of red is a nice change-up to the common boldness of colors. I also really like that the tee fits a tad bit longer than your average t-shirt. The high waisted striped trousers by Topshop are a relaxed fit and look fab with the simple color palette. Pair it will a crisp white tank top and espadrilles to complete the trendy resort outfit. I mean, come on, who doesn’t love the “I own a yacht” look? Last but not least, it’s not a nautical notion without anchors! Dogeared makes a simple anchor pendant necklace that symbolizes strength and the peacefulness of staying grounded.
Don’t go overboard with this trend (no pun intended). The combination of different stripes clashes, so it’s best to keep it simple with one striped piece, but do add a pop of red lipstick! There’s just the ocean breeze and cloudless sunny skies in our future. It’s smooth sailing from here on out, so let the adventure begin!
