Bottoms Dresses FASHION Outerwear Shoes and Accessories

Nautical, Dude

Written by Ashley

Sun shining, waves rising, this fashion is sailor worthy.

First tip for nailing a Sag Harbor nautical look for spring: going overboard with a costume-y sailor hat, neck scarf & will result in me punching you in the face. Get the look with one simple piece keeping accessories minimal, muted and mysterious, to let your sea-farer garb, like the hot Sparkle & Fade Hi-Waisted Sailor shorts pictured below [$48]  do the talking.

Decode 1.8 Doubled Breasted Mini in Navy [$138] — I actually own this dress, and was blown away by how comfortable the crisp yet flexible fabric felt, even hours after wearing. Paired with a crisp jacket & some boots or wedges, this pulls off a subtle sailor look flawlessly.

Sperry Top-Sider “A/O” 2-Eye Lace Leather Boat Shoe [$75]: Sperry set the precedent for how boat shoes should look, feel, style an outfit, and wear. These will look better with each jaunt throughout the high seas (or the streets), pairing well with a sundress, a crisp pair of skinny pants, or a denim short.

80’s – ‘Gold Horse’ Colored Plastic Aviator Sunglasses in White [$10]:  A throwback to the uber-80’s oversized decadence of yacht-heavy Miami (think Scarface), you’ll gender-bend in these while channeling a modern hipster side.

Peggy Li Sea Charms [$44]: Seahorses, captain’s wheels & shells? I can practically smell the salty air. An adorable every day necklace alone, or layered with bountiful baubles, you’ll remind everyone in your path of the quintessential relaxing beach day.

banyanhippo Sailor Tote [$33]: This esty shop recommends this tote for the grocery store, etc. We say, rock it every day to hold life essentials. Paired with a casual look o or to tote your laptop in style, it’s a serious spring essential available in navy (shown) red & a sunny yellow.
