As March draws closer and the thought of Spring Break becomes more eminent in our minds, the winter winds simply detract from the prevailing hope that warm weather and soft sands are coming our way. This Fashionisto is obviously in the same thought process, rocking a nautical belt that perfectly corresponds to his more preppy adaptation of a man-in-uniform. Paired with a military style coat, button-down and simple black skinny jeans, his eye-catching belt represents the hope left in all of us that bathing suit season is drawing near.
Nautical themes may not have been seen on the spring 2013 runways, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be part of this season’s repertoire. Read between the lines to see that stripes were widely represented at shows like Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, J.Crew and many more. Why not reinvent the trend and add a slightly more nautical twist like this Fashionisto?
Ready to add some maritime pieces to your wardrobe? Here’s a similar belt that would complement even the most simple outfit. Try it with your go-to LBD (Little Black Dress), and if you don’t have one, NASTY GAL can help out. There’s no need to be as subtle as a belt. Try a striped dress like this one from ASOS with a leather belt and some oxfords for a preppy look thats ready for the sea.
Spring is close at hand and there’s no reason not to get excited. This Fashionisto shows that there is no problem with adding some traditionally summer pieces to your winter wardrobe, and going nautical is a great way to do it. Just because it’s February, doesn’t mean we can’t start incorporating warm weather into our wardrobes!
