Sophisticated Nautical Style: Ditch the Kitch

Sophisticated Nautical Style: Ditch the KitchNautical-inspired fashion is nothing new. Ever since Coco Chanel dared to embrace French sailors’ traditional blue and white stripes and reinvent them in her trademark Coco Chanel striped style, women everywhere have found that the crisp pairing of blue and white, black and white and even red and white is something of a palate cleanser after sober winter hues. The key to success with sophisticated nautical style is simply to refrain from overdoing the theme.

Here are some of my top nautical fashion picks, each of which allude to a seafaring history (without a multitude of anchors). Perfect for work, dinner, or an evening out. Ahoy mates. Spring really is just ahead!

  • Charriol ‘Nautical Cable’ Hoop Earrings ($575 –
