Feeling Nautical

Feeling Nautical

With the summer season quickly approaching, there are various trends that have been standing out recently. It is evident that they will be making appearances all summer. Some of these trends include wearing bandanas as neckties, off-the-shoulder tops, wide-leg pants, and many more. In this article, I will explain how you can make stripes, another major trend for the summer, look high-fashion, laid-back, or sporty.

In the outfit that I am wearing above, I wanted to make the stripes the focal point of this ensemble. I paired a long sleeved, off-the-shoulder striped top with a classic pair of white jeans. I finished off the look with some nude, lace-up block heels. These are all items that are a must-have in your summer 2017 wardrobe. Any of these pieces are very versatile and can be used for whatever look you are trying to achieve or recreate. By incorporating the blue and white stripes with the white pants, this outfit screams Memorial Day BBQ.

This outfit is perfect for those of you who enjoy looking put together, but also require that comfort at all times, no matter what you’re wearing. To dress up this outfit, try adding some silver jewelry with a choker to top it off. Another piece of advice is to try wearing your hair up when wearing off-the-shoulder tops—doing so will keep the focus on the outfit, will minimize the potential distractions from your hair, and will keep the whole look simple.

If you want to take another approach on the stripes trend, try wearing a striped T-shirt with a pair of medium wash jeans and a classic pair of Adidas or Converse sneakers. Otherwise, if you choose to keep the look really comfortable and casual, switch off the jeans for some black leggings and call it a day. Striped clothing is a trend that is consistently evolving, allowing you to always look polished and nautical.
