Originally inspired by Navy sailors, nautical trends were once structured clothing pieces limited to navy and white colored shorts and pants fastened by parallel buttons on the front. Thanks to modern fashion, the nautical look has expanded covering every article of clothing in a woman’s closet from earrings to shirts to dresses and even purses. Today, most of these pieces are patterned in white and navy stripes, and usually embodying its signature, the anchor, the symbol for sailors. Although nautical pieces are typically associated with the beach, it has penetrated through every day fashion. Boatneck tops with a signature white and navy striped pattern can be paired with jeans and red accessories- a chic and subtly patriotic look.
Who’s Wearing It? Unlike many fashion trends, there are nautical pieces that flatter every figure, which means every woman can flaunt it confidently. Celebrities that stay classy wearing nautical wear include a wide range. Jay Z’s better half, Beyonce, known for her famous curves, has been spotted wearing a navy top trimmed in white and navy thin striped cuffs on the arm and neckline. Kate Moss has been spotted in Paris stepping out in jeans topped with a navy and white thick striped shirt and a red coat with nautically inspired buttons.
