ACCESSORIES REPORT: Nautically Noteworthy

Accessories Report

I think everyone here in Pennsylvania would agree that this winter is one for the books. It reigns supreme in comparison to the winters past with all its ice, wind and snow. As a result it’s safe to say everyone is yearning for warmer days around here. Sure, those summer months are on the way but if your patience is running low use your fashion to transport you elsewhere. What I’m trying to say is, you don’t have to set sail to wear something summery and fresh instead just rock it on your way to class.

Nautical style is simply timeless. It has been around for ages and I think we can all agree that it will continue to be chic for many years to come. Nautical influences are subtle yet present in the looks of Fashionista/os from campus to campus. Just consider your own closet. Do you have a pair of boat shoes or a navy and white striped T-shirt? Or maybe you have an affinity for anchors? Well then, you my friend are nautical.

This Fashionista’s color palette is Americana at its finest with its striking hues of red, white and blue. What attracted my eye to this ensemble are the nautical details. The chunky white ropes that fasten this lovely canvas coat are reminiscent of those you might find on a sail boat. Her causal tan boat shoes echo the same nautical vibe as the coat and add an element of cohesion to this look. Her outfit is fresh, bold and crisp while at the same time completely practical for a busy day around campus.

So, if you’re looking to practice your own bit of escapism around campus be inspired by all that is nautical. Don’t go overboard though (no pun intended) just add a playful hint of it here and there in your outfit like this Fashionista did. Try checking out a simple striped T-shirt, bracelet made of rope or a classic pair of boat shoes. All of these options would give your outfit just the splash of style your were searching for!

Spotted: Take a peak at this look from Chloé, the navy and white color combo certainly alludes to a life near the sea.
