Fourth of July Inspired: Hit the High Seas!

Well, it seems that there's a wave (no pun intended) of nautical inspired designs everywhere and I must say we're inspired. Not just for fashion but for stationery, designs and even wedding invites. Designers from Christian Dior to Viktor & Rolf have created pieces that set sail in style with collections full of classic sailor-inspired garb (think: nautical stripes, crisp white shirts, wide collars, high-waisted sailor pants and flirty flared skirts.) You can get the look with Parisian-approved blue-and-white stripes. Try a classic boatneck sweater, paired with navy or white pants and is a guaranteed route to an oh-so-chic ensemble whether you're on the dock, at the beach or walking the city streets! For a more formal and feminine approach, try on a striped maxi dress with a structured trench coat, or go for sophisticated glamour in a crisp shirt dress, belted at the waist. If you're more into subtlety ensembles, an easy way to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe is simply by pairing items in the classic nautical palette--navy, white and red--together.
