LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Navy and Nautical

Let's Hear it for the Boys

Just when North Carolina seemed to have the promise of spring, we got a strong reminder that we’re not quite there yet. It’s been damp and cold, which makes all of us want to hide away in our dorm rooms. However, this Fashionisto didn’t let the nasty weather make him blue. Well, except for his shirt.

Although most students bundled up in sweatpants, sweatshirts and clunky rain boots, he opted for a laid back ensemble that reflected a little more effort.This outfit reminded me of warmer weather because of its nautical, beachy color scheme. His deep navy blue button-down is perfectly accentuated by his khaki pants and tan canvas shoes. The lace-up detail make the outfit a casual option that is perfectly appropriate for a day of classes.

The nautical theme is a classic look that will never go out of style. His outfit is a stylish ensemble that can simply become more practical by adding a heavy rain coat on top.

Hint: As you wish for warmer weather and look forward to any upcoming vacations, incorporate a nautical theme into your wardrobe. J. Crew is a popular shop known for its beachy attire that will make you feel like you’re sailing the high seas. Nothing is more nautical than this chambray short sleeve shirt with a rope and anchors design. This rucksack incorporates the same beachy color scheme of the Fashionisto’s outfit, and can serve as a cool bookbag. Last, these Jack Purcell shoes follow in the theme, but add a new feel with a touch of leather. Although we don’t quite have those warm, breezy days yet, we can still dress like we do.
