Anchor Your Style!

28 May

I have a soft spot for anything striped, bedazzled with anchors, full of buttons, and preppy. With that being said, one of my favorite summer fashion trends is the nautical – sailor style. The nautical look first became popular by Coco Chanel in the 20’s. It has been said that the fashion icon was had an affair with the Duke of Westminster, a huge yachting enthusiast, and began dressing the part of a true sailor after observing and admiring other women on yachting voyages.

Anchor embellishments, braided rope details, high-waited sailor pants and wind tousled hair – I can just imagine spending a day sailing in the Caribbean! (Note to self: Plan a vacay soon!)

I created the board above as inspiration for your Memorial Day attire!

What are some of your favorite nautical pieces?
