Okay let me breathe because I can hardly contain myself when it comes to this week’s Fashion post… It’s an iconic American style that we all love (well at least I do) Have you guessed it? Yep! you’re correct it’s Nautical!!
When one thinks of the nautical look, vertical blue and white stripes are typically the first thing to come to mind… When I think of Nautical I think of Summer in Cape Cod, cocktails on the lawn in Martha’s Vineyard and all things sunny, sexy and classy. Nautical isn’t only clothing it’s also accessories, bold red lips, big curls or even a sleek bun.
If you’re interested in some ways you can rock this All American look I have just the right amount of ideas to help get your fashion wheels spinning!
You didn’t really think I would leave the guys and kids out did you????
From every day wear to swimwear, what’s amazing about this style is its universal… anyone can wear it and look amazing! Nautical isn’t only a “style” it can also be a Lifestyle. Whether you decided to go all out or use Nautical accents you really can’t go wrong.
For the full effect, opt for a fitted tank, tee, or sweater that features the ever-popular pattern, and pair it with your favorite pair of navy slacks, dark denim jeans, a navy skirt, or even khaki bottoms. Stripes can be less than slimming, so consider a waist cinching accessory to add definition to the look—extra style points will be awarded if said accessory just so happens to be red. Pair your outfit with flats, heels, or even boat shoes, to create a perfectly fun and casual look.
If it is a more subtle effect that you are looking for, opt for a nautical color scheme, with white on the top and blue on the bottom. Just maximize some of your favorite tops and bottoms to create an entirely new vibe. Add in a few splashes of bold red with your accessories, and you have a chic look that can be worn everywhere from a picnic to your office.
Bold red lips, cat eye liner, and clean, fresh skin are the perfect complement to a nautical outfit. The trick is to enhance, not overwhelm, and to showcase your impeccable fashion sense. An artful application of winged black eyeliner, dewy rouged cheeks, and a glossy red pout will pull your whole look together.
Get in this All American classic look, and channel your inner sailor.. in other words Go Nautical or Go Home!!! Xoxo
