Fashion Friday : Nautical Prints for Summer

Hi All!

Jamie here from FashionistaMusings with your dose of Friday Fashion.

With Memorial Day behind us and the weather warming up for summer, our wardrobes become lighter and more colorful. Breathable fabrics, such as linen and cotton, and light reflecting colors allow us to enjoy the ever-rising temperatures without sweltering. Nautical Prints are the perfect combination of backyard summer Bar-B-Q meets Yacht Club chic. Classic Navy and White horizontal stripes can be paired with a wide range of colors including Red, Grey and Brown.

This Theory Striped Maxi dress with chunky wood jewelry and leather wedges paired with minimal makeup can be worn to brunch, an afternoon picnic in the park or a stroll through town. 

Buy a Navy and White Striped Nautical Blouse and pair with pieces from your existing wardrobe for an instant summer update! White Jeans, a Red Skirt, Blue Jean Cut-Offs… the possibilities are endless.


Wedges are a summer wardrobe staple. Update your current shoe collection with a pair of nautical themed wedges (such as this pair from the Jessica Simpson Collection) for a water-ready look that is feminine and crisp.      

For those of you who desire to try the nautical look without jumping into the water head first, try a Sailor themed manicure. Start with Navy nailpolish. Add thin white stripes. Finish with a Red heart for the extra touch of sparkle.

Do you love nautical prints? If so, how are you incorporating them into your wardrobe?

Happy Weekend!
