Let's Hear it for the Boys

The nautical theme is a reoccurring one throughout the warmer spring and summer days. Just like any other trend, subtlety is key. There are many ways to incorporate a little bit of sailor into your look without going overboard (pun intended). The most popular nautical pieces include striped shirts, navy blazers, boat shoes or tailored shorts and pants.

This week’s Fashionisto is sporting the nautical theme by wearing tailored navy shorts with light pink anchors on them. The tailored shorts are an alternative to the causal jeans look, which is a classic but can get tiring for the fashion-forward. The added detail of the anchor pattern is a small but significant addition to the tailored shorts. The light pink anchors match his pink long sleeve button-down shirt. He accessorizes with a red-brown leather belt, which matches the saddle of his boat shoes. The small details of a colored belt and anchors match both his shoes and shirt, making a little detail go a long way.

Hint: If you’re looking to add a bit of detail as well as stick to the nautical theme, you have a few options. Try a long sleeve navy button-down shirt with a white anchor pattern. For bottoms, you can match the white of the anchors with white tailored shorts. Accessorize with a khaki webbed belt with a leather trim. For shoes, wear suede boat shoes in a light khaki. With this look, you are able to incorporate this week’s Fashionisto’s attention to detail through colors and patterns.
