Getting The Nautical Look
Happy Thursday, ladies. The nautical trend is hot for spring and was shown all over the fashion runways. The funny thing is, I think of it as a classic motif that we revisit, year in and year out. Remember how fond of it Coco Chanel was? Today’s ootd is anchored by a nautical print tunic and some super comfy white pants.
You can get a nautical look in many ways, including wide-leg pants, stripes, navy with white, chain motifs, or sailor collars. When my friends at Chico’s offered to send me a look for an Instagram collaboration, I zeroed in on navy and white because it’s a classic color combo and always looks fresh for spring.
My tunic is a crisp no-iron, cotton fabric with 4% spandex so it’s very comfy. This tunic is really long so my elongated denim jacket doesn’t quite cover the back of it. In fact, at 34″long, it’ll make a great bathing suit coverup on my trip to Hawaii.
It’s actually a perfect length to wear over leggings so everything is covered. I’m wearing it with the slim Brigette pull-on pant in alabaster. White pants can be pretty unforgiving so I like to wear them with a longer tunic. These are the same style I showed in blue here plus they come in 8 other colors in misses, petite and tall.
I added my super comfy white platform sneakers, budget-friendly options here, and here and some nautical accessories. My bracelet sold out in a flash, but my chain earrings are still available here. Hoop earrings would also continue the nautical theme.
Other ways to get the nautical look:
- A classic Breton shirt
- A blazer with gold buttons and or epaulets
- Medallion accessories
- Fisherman sweater
- Rope accessories
- White linen pants
- Deck shoes
- Canvas tote bag
