Nautical style is nothing new, but we’re making it fresh with a twist on the basics. Think a bateau striped button-down instead of a tee, and a bright take on the classic navy blazer. Here’s how to get the look:
1. Start with a bateau striped button-down paired with a mint colored jean - cheeky and fresh all in one.
2. Instead of throwing on a navy blazer, opt for one in bright blue (all the better to turn heads).
3. Accessorize in analogous colors - greens and yellows. A pair of kelly green flats provide a foundation for the look, while a neon yellow clutch gives it a bright boost.
4. Finish off the look with a chunky necklace for some visual texture, and throw on your sunglasses.
