Nautical Stripes

 The military trend has been in existence for a couple years now:

This trend really lends itself to the Fall and Winter seasons with saturated colors like dark browns, tans, and olive, in addition to the vast use of military-inspired jackets and outerwear.  So, how can we transition this trend to Spring?  The Navy!

Dior, Marc Jacobs, and Betsey Johnson nautical

The "Nautical Look" is perfect for Spring!  I've been loving stripes already this season!

(To know what I'm wearing check out my 70s Stripes post)

This look is perfect for Spring weather and is super easy to re-create affordably!
Just follow the Formula = Stripe top + Denim bottoms + Gold accessories:

These picks are all from Forever 21, Old Navy, and Dillard's and cost $58 or (usually much much) less!  Click on any item to go directly to the website.

The formula is really open-ended because you can take this look so many ways:

-Wide leg jeans are perfect for Spring while shorts suit you better for Summer in denim or white as another great option! 

-Navy and white is the most "nautical" combination and a boat neck takes it above and beyond! 

-Remember to keep it ladylike with gold jewelry such as chain-link necklaces or an armful of bangles!

I hope everyone has a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend!!!  Remember to thank, or better yet, hug a veteran!
