When it comes to warm weather fashion, nautical-inspired looks simply can’t be beat. Timeless and great for mixing and matching, we dare you not to like our picks!
Choosing a nautical look for spring is classic. From the blue, white, and red color palette to the clean lines, traditional shapes, and simple patterns, like stripes, it’s the kind of look you can depend on. Perfect for pairing with cardigans and boat shoes, lots of these casual looks are able to accompany you on and off the water. And for those not quite sailboat ready, the rest of these looks will be suitable for dinner at the yacht club or socializing at beach house parties. Check out our hand-picked selection below and decide if you’re ready to set sail with a nautical-inspired outfit.
1. A-Line Americana Dress
This dress screams classic beauty. The A-line silhouette is both flattering and forgiving, as are the cute cropped sleeves. The belted waist and pleated skirt help to create an hourglass shape. Pair this dress with platform espadrilles and a coordinating mani/pedi for an adorable nautical look. An oversized wide brim hat would also add a sweet finishing touch to this dress. Priced at $64.99.
2. White Cropped Jumpsuit
The epitome of effortless style, this casual, cropped white jumpsuit offers loads of nautical edge plus endless styling opportunities. Dress this piece up or down and add your own accessories to vary the look. A red sash belt, oversized sunnies, and polka dot slingback wedges would add loads of fun and personality. Conversely, you can opt for boat shoes, a brown rope belt and a headscarf for the perfect at-sea outfit. Priced at $198.
3. Linen Boat Neck Top
A loose fitting top is perfect for hanging dockside while taking in the salty air and sunny days. This red boat neck version is actually made from organic linen, which means you get sustainability and maximum breathability all in one. The cherry color is gorgeous and would pair well with white pants, shorts, jeans, and just about any casual bottom you can think of. We’d love to see this paired with a long pendant necklace and straw tote. Priced at $188.
4. Striped Maxi Skirt
For a separate that you’ll wear time and time again (and all spring and summer long), get on board with a nautical-inspired maxi skirt like this navy and white number. Laid-back, yet super stylish, you can wear this piece with tanks and tees, as well as with flats or heels. Statement earrings (try red) and a simple white tank would look great with this maxi. Priced at $44.99.
5. Carpenter Cropped Pants
Imagine navigating the open waters in these borrowed-from-the-boys cropped carpenter pants. The frayed hem, wide leg, and relaxed fit of these denim pants are perfect for the adventurous seafarer. Pair them with fitted tops to balance out the oversized look of the bottoms, and toss on a chunky cardigan for those sea breezes. Definitely keep the adorable rope belt that comes with them, and don’t forget the shoes. Loafers, flat sandals, and even sneakers would all work well with these pants. Priced at $128.
