With warmer temperatures come new trends, and nothing says spring like iconic nautical-inspired fashions. New variations on this classic, century old style continue to make waves from the runway to the resort.
Some unique and fun nautical finds for the season include:
Sailcloth handbags: Once used to help mariners navigate high winds, this hardworking fabric has found new uses in fashion items. The Small Sailcloth Zipper Purse ($39) from SailorBags makes a nautical-chic accessory for carrying sunglasses and other items to the pool or on a walk along the waterfront.
Tabletop: Bring a coastal theme to any clam bake or picnic. The By the Sea Tabletop Collection ($18-$60) from Dune Road Designs brings out the beach and water lover in all of us. Dress up a bottle of sparkling wine or water with a nautical wine bag. Make sure to have a few extras and use them as party favors.
Home accessories: Bring the ocean to your home. LookInTheAttic’s pewter starfish or braided ropes handpulls and knobs (starting at $7.99) can affordably transform a boring coffee table into a cherished antique. Incorporate a relaxed beach vibe in any location, any time of the year by adding nautical pillows, curtains, furniture, accessories and lantern lighting.
Pet clothing for the “Salty Dog”: The Sailor Day Dog Dress ($31.75) by Marilyn Muttro is sure to turn heads when Fifi or Fido struts by the local dog barkery. Accessorize with the Sailor Bandana Collar.
Seafaring Style: Update your spring wardrobe by adding a few fun pieces of jewelry. Consider the playful, chain-linked Red Ribbon Nautical Bracelet from JCPenney. Don’t forget to toss some hats in your SailorBag. For the little sailors, visit Etsy for handmade choices such as the Bamboo Nautical Knit Baby Hat.
