Ahoy There!

By Nellie Given

It’s a fresh year, so there are fresh trends just waiting to be found! It’s so fun to watch the styles of the previous year transform and build to beautiful creations that take the fashion world by storm.

One of the more nautical trends that has surfaced in 2017 is tailor made for sailors! Things like navy and white stripes, red buttons on a dark peacoat, and even the classic white sailor hats.

I think the world knew this trend was coming. It’s hard not to predict with the growing popularity in sea-worthy stripes, crisp silhouettes, and the timeless peacoat. This breezy style is perfect for the upcoming spring and summer seasons. In fact, wearing it now could inspire some great vacation plans! It really will get anyone in the mood for the warm months ahead.

This is one of the easier runway-to-closet fashions, because I am 95% positive that you own an article of clothing with stripes. Throw on a classic blue and white striped shirt paired with some white jeans (very acceptable any time of year) and you’re golden. The look would be even more complete with a clean cut jacket in the peacoat fashion.

If you are ready to jump on this ship, here’s some inspiration to be (or look like) a true seafarer!
