January is that time of year when we dream of escaping the winter chill for sunshine, the seaside, sailboats and, frankly, anything summer. Fortunately for us, this year’s Resort and Spring collections feature the classic nautical trend in spades. While this trend has become a classic, it has a saucy, bold flair that lends its pizazz – i.e stripes in bold red, navy and gold colors and anchor motifs.
Nautical trends are always a safe investment being that the looks are crisp, clean, classy and elegant. This trend has been around for a while and it’s not planning on making an exit any time soon. Keep the look chic and classic (think Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn) with a few bold accents added in and it’s hard to go wrong!
Check out these fun and flirty nautical pieces that are timeless and won’t break the bank:
