Summer has arrived in full swing and, for girls who aren’t ready to devote their wardrobe to neon brights, it’s the perfect season to try out nautical must haves! Between classic red, crisp navy, fresh white, trendy anchors and stripes, there’s something for every style. And, what better time to test out the nautical trend than on the 4th of July—the day everyone prides their love for ‘Merica with red, white, and blue! Here are some of my favorite nautical picks.
Whether you’re attending a 4th of July party or ‘Merica themed party in style, or want to bring some pizazz to an elegant outfit, Rent the Runway has the perfect clutch for you. This Kate Spade New York accessory has all the key elements—navy blue, red, a gold anchor, and even a bit of a boat shape! The striped metal clasps and interior are absolutely to die for. A darker clutch like this is perfect to pair with a bright red dress and white accessories.
Forever 21’s sparkly anchor and stripes tank is a must have for looking trendy while still comfortable. Not only does it have all the necessary criteria in a staple nautical piece, but is also extremely versatile. To wear this tank casually, you could simply pair it with a pair of denim shorts. To be trendy, you could buy this tank over-sized, pair it with leggings, pumps, and a stack of navy blue and red bracelets. To make this outfit dressy, you could tuck the tank into a black bandage skirt. The flowy tank top will balance out the tight skirt, giving you both shape and room to breathe.
Nothing says “Ahoy!” like these nautical shorts from ModCloth. The high-waist silhouette doubles for fit and fashion because it gives a retro pin-up vibe while making your waist look smaller. All of the sailors will lose sight at sea and turn their attention to you! These shorts are surely for the edgy nautical lover.
