STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Stripes, Two Ways

There’s no question that nautical themes have been on trend recently, however what do you do with these pieces when you’re tired of looking like a modern day sailor? Good news: these items are flexible and you can incorporate them into your everyday wardrobe by matching them singularly with classic basic items, just as this featured Fashionista did.

This Fashionista looks fabulous in an oversized striped shirt, an item that would match well with any pair of nautical-esque red shorts. As seen on this Fashionista though, she’s smartly matched her striped top with a pair of indigo denim skinny jeans and a gorgeous camel bag. Her straw fedora and gold sandals are great items that will translate well from spring to summer. Lastly, her large gold watch adds shine as the only item of jewelry in her look. This look has easily moved away from a sea-faring vibe and into a casual spring ensemble.

To recreate this Fashionista’s look, try this black and white striped top from Urban Outfitters. Match it with these dark wash denim skinnies from Forever 21 and this straw fedora. Try finishing your casual look with this similar satchel. If you do fancy a nautical theme for the day, take the same shirt mentioned above and match with these red scalloped shorts and these adorable red and white striped flats with a lace-up detail. Accessorize with this whale necklace to finish your ensemble. And, Voila! There you have it: stripes, two ways.
