Spring style is quickly approaching, which means soon Fahionistas everywhere will be sporting the timeless trend of nautical stripes. The trend of nautical stripes has been around ever since Coco Chanel first introduced the Parisian chic style in the 1920s. Over the decades, the trend has modified accordingly, but today the nautical striped boat neck is a classic staple in every Fashionista’s wardrobe.
I spotted this Fashionista sporting the nautical stripe trend with a twist. She wore the traditional boat neck silhouette in contrasting navy and white, but spiced it up with sequins. Sequins can add a bit of glitz and glam to the trend creating a more modern version of the trend. Mixing up the coloring of the stripes or silhouette is another way to make this timeless trend more contemporary. I found a nautical stripe dolman sleeve hoodie from Splendid the brand that mixes style with comfort, for those Fashionistas who want to create a more causal look for class or to warm up on chilly spring night. For a Fashionista who wants to recreate Chanel’s 1920s classic look, opt for a nautical striped blazer or boat neck knit paired with tailored jeans and ballet flats.
Hint: Think you can’t mix patterns? Think again. Nautical stripes have minimal pattern so the trend can be paired with a vintage floral skirt or a geometric patterned scarf for the more daring Fashionista. Mixing these patterns will create a look that will definitely be catching everyone’s attention on campus.
