Trend Alert: Ahoy There Mateys!

Be forewarned the nautical theme will be every where this spring.  This means you need to break out the horizontal stripes, the rope belts and the (gasp) deck shoes.  While there will never be topsiders on this blog, I wanted to give you a preview of some of the nautical inspired styles that you will be seeing at a retail shop near you.


Michael Stars Rivera Tee (Nordstrom, $56)

T-Bags Striped Cardigan (Net-a-Porter, $170)

Aerie Striped Boatneck (American Eagle, $19.50)


Ralph Lauren Rope Belt (Saks, $145)


Milly Rope Tunic Dress (ShopBop, $340)

So, are you going to embrace the nautical fashion? Or does this trend seem less trendy given that we are in the mid-atlantic region where seaside fashion has always been prevalent?

    This is a trend that I actually like. It just speaks Spring to me.

    I love that nautical is finally mainstream because after summers in Newport, I’d come back with navy blue attire and a rope bracelet and all I ever got were jokes about sailors and the Gorton fisherman! Hopefully this trend makes it back home to Wisconsin…

    I’ve seen this around, but not the dress – oh la la I want one! Can you do a congresswoman/staff/intern on that dress?!

    Love the dress. Nice balance of navy and white – length perfect…semi-casual perfection.

    I can do a 10th Commandment on the dress, but it will be more successful if we wait a little longer. Not everyone has Spring stuff out yet.

    I never know what to wear on bottom with cute sailor-y tops. Any thoughts?
