Celebrating The Red, White and Blue.....Nautical Style!

Nautical fashion is one of the hottest trends this summer and I couldn't be happier!  I am a huge fan of this style and over the years have collected many pieces that are now staples in my closet.  That's what I like about this look.  The pieces are so amazingly versatile that they work well with lots of other pieces in my closet.  Nautical looks can be dressed up or down in a snap too!  And, they never get old....they only get better and more fabulous with time. Aye! Aye!, indeed.

Made fashionable by Coco Chanel in the 1920's, this look is crisp, clean, elegant and has a classic appeal that is beloved around the world. The main characteristics of this style are stripes, black, navy, red and white color combinations.  I personally adore the casual understated glamour, especially the gold accents that are so popular with this style.  It's the perfect finishing touch!  

 Nautical Fashion's best feature in my opinion is it's clean lines which makes it "figure friendly" on so many different shapes, silhouettes and sizes. This is also one of the reasons why this look has such staying power.  

Though the Nautical trend is no stranger to most of us, this year it has taken the market by storm. There is a different spin on it this year though.....a really sophisticated yacht club infusion if you will.  I love it!  With July 4th approaching, Nautical style is the perfect solution for an independence outfit. The red, white, blue and black has never looked more chic!  And, with so many Nautical clothes and accessories available now it is real easy to incorporate a little bit of this trend into your own wardrobe.

By simply adding a striped shirt, red belt, or navy blue hand bag you can transform an otherwise average outfit into this classic look. (Don''t forget to add gold for accessories.) Here are some ideas and inspiration outfits to kick you into Nautical mode.  Happy independence day everyone!
