Nautical is back and bigger than ever this season! You will see the nautical influence in all the stripes, and in details like strong hardware, rope embellishments and all the red/white/blue combinations.


  • I am loving the juxtaposition of wearing a floral with a stripe. It’s a hard look to pull off correctly (and not look like Punky Brewster)…but very on-trend!
  • If you are broad shouldered, be sure to keep the stripes away from your shoulders – it will make you look broader.
  • Bring in a bright color with your stripes – like neon yellow, tangerine or grass green.

Stay tuned over the coming days for more TREND WATCH reports!
