As you may have noticed, stripes have been a big trend in magazines and on the runway for the spring/summer '12 season. As spring quickly approaches, I find myself eager to start preparing my wardrobe for weeks in the city and weekends down the shore. But how can you create a wardrobe that's acceptable for both the streets and the beach? Our solution: Nautical stripes, deep navy's, and crisp whites.
During the summer, it can be difficult to decide what to wear on hot days that allows you to stay cool but look put together. The combination of light and flowly fabrics in navy and white is an easy way to accomplish this look. Crisp whites instantly make any outfit chic, and pair well with navy; creating a fashionable and practical look for any setting. Adding gold accents helps to tie in the "nautical" theme and dress up the look.
