As a Vancouver style blogger, I’ve always noticed that around this time of year the presence of nautical fashion becomes more and more obvious. Maybe it’s because we are a coastal city, or maybe it’s cause we all wish we owned a boat (ahem, or yacht) – but I’ve always found this trend to be steadfast in style come summer.
Year after year, I have found that the nautical fashion trend is always in style. It’s the summer style “trend” that just won’t quit. While the silhouettes may change slightly, the basis and inspiration has remained consistent. Nautical inspired style is something I’ve always been drawn to. I love the crisp pairings of stripes, navy, red, and white – and I love how bright and summery the combination appears.
Nautical Summer Style
Add on Nautical Accessories
When it comes to your accessories, look for pieces that have a nautical look to them. Accessories such as anchor earrings and knotted bracelets will further add that nautical vibe to your look.
Crisp Stripes are a Must
Add a striped item into your outfit to really create a nautical look. Look for bold and crisp stripes to really complete your look.
Play with Red, White, & Blue
Nothing will create a nautical look quite like combining red, white, and blue. These colours worn together create a really striking and sailor-esque ensemble.
Rock a Bold Lip
A vibrant red lip is always a statement in a look. To instantly inject a bit of boldness into your nautical look, dare to be bright with a gorgeous red lip. This addition will complete your look and tie all these nautical elements together.
