Shipwrecked!

by David

Hop aboard and sail away with me on this week’s cruise, while we spring forward into one of Spring’s classic trends… nautical apparel. The maritime concept promotes a cool effortless style that focuses on relaxed fits that anybody can rock, no matter your sex or size. I kind of like to think of it as a conservative style, but without being too stuffy or pretentious. To mix it up a bit this week, I felt like focusing on a “his & her’s” type of layout. Display below is a great example of how two people can compliment each other with their fashion choices, without being too matchy-matchy, and all the while being on-trend. Nautical attire is so easily accessible to everyone regardless of how big or small your clothing budget is, it’s also a quick way to show the fashion snots you know your shit when it comes to dressing yourself without really having to do a lot. It basically boils down to a pair of straight/slim chinos, a striped shirt/tee and some loafers or boating shoe. Boom! You’re done! I had to also include one of this season’s must-have colors, orange, into the mix and honestly, it really works well with this particular theme with the navy and white and pink, etc. Check back next week for more on my favorite nautical gear, and I’ll most definitely have some options that are a bit more price-friendly.

It wasn’t until my friend tried on that exact pair later on that I thought, “Hmm… I think I kinda like it… Oh fuck… I really like it!”
