With summer approaching, we’re all getting ready to dress like we’re bound for the beach. I spotted today’s Fashionisto looking like he was dressed for a chic boat trip. He nails the effortless nautical look with the right shades and color combinations while staying very minimalistic.
To set the nautical mood, this Fashionisto wears a dark blue UNIQLO polo shirt with an anchor print. The small white anchors are a subtle touch and keep the look very boat trip appropriate. A polo shirt, as opposed to a regular T-shirt, will make you look more put together and adds class to an outfit. Shirts with collars are great pieces to own because they’re great for layering under sweaters. For bottoms, he wears a pair of olive toned jeans, also by UNIQLO. The earthy shade doesn’t take away from the outfit and helps keep the ensemble very summer-esque. Notice how this Fashionisto cuffs his jeans and sleeves, instantly giving his look a summer vibe.
On his feet, he sports a pair of oxford Sperry Top-Siders in a fresh wash of blue and white. The shoes really pop against the darker, neutral shades of the other pieces and draw a lot of attention. I love the splash of white in the outfit and the duo of white and blue are obvious nautical shades. This Fashionisto keeps the look simple with no accessories so that all of the focus is on the clothing. The outfit has a laid back feel with the rolled up cuffs and is perfect for this pre-summer weather.
Hint: Printed polo shirts are a fun way to get creative and show off personal style. Look for fun, colorful prints or go for something subtler, like the anchors on this Fashionisto’s shirt. If you think the print is too flashy, layer it underneath a button-up cardigan or a sweater so that only the collar or part of the shirt shows.
