Sail into Nautical-Inspired Style

PinterestTwitterEmailFacebooktumblr

Whenever late spring rolls around, I feel a wave of excitement just thinking about all the sailor-inspired clothes I’ll be able to incorporate into my wardrobe. After flipping through numerous vintage books and watching old Hollywood films, I find myself freshly inspired by the classic, nautical pieces worn by some of history’s most recognizable style icons. Time and time again, I’m struck by these effortlessly executed outfits from Anna Karina, Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn, and Natalie Wood. Always interested in updating my looks, I’ve found some seafaring styles that evoke that vintage spirit with their own modern twist.

1. Five Oceans Pendant, 2. Playful Pastime Top, 3. On a Friendly Shore Top, 4. Cherries Shoe-bilee.

1. King Spoke Coin Necklace, 2. Ought or Nautical Romper, 3. Weekend at Sea Dress, 4. SOS Brooch 5. Shoestring Licorice Flat in Cherry

    I really like the two pendants…they’re really cute. I enjoy nautical themes but I prefer the blue and white to red and white look

    I really love the Audrey Hepburn inspired look. It looks so playful and classy. Not to mention Audrey Hepburn is probably one of the best style icons of all time.
