Spring Fashion Trend: Stripes and Nautical


If you’ve been in the stores in the last few days, you may have noticed something: stripes and nautical themes popping up. I’ve mainly seen anchors, which my 15-year-old daughter is obsessed with right now. Anchor jewelry, anchor shirts, anchor accessories….you get the idea. And she’s on to something – anchors are in.

Stripes and Nautical styles are a huge fashion spring trend for 2013. Check out a few pieces I found that are drool-worthy, as well as two outfits I put together on Polyvore.

Nautical Themed Cute Outfit Ideas

This first outfit is cute and super cozy. I can see wearing this on a Saturday out and about at the local farmer’s market or for a lunch date.

Nautical Cute Outfit Idea



This Nautical styled outfit is a bit dressier. It features a fitted striped top, white tuxedo pants, gold accents such as jewelry and sandals and a red bag for a splash of color.

Nautical Dressy Outfit



Are you going to embrace the Nautical trend? I suggest adding one piece (something with an anchor on it) and see how you like it.
