Sea-worthy pieces: Nautical trend will keep you cozy, too
By Brittany Anas
It’s that time of year when our fashion senses are in a purgatory of sorts. Is wearing a glittery gold skirt and fair isle sweater the fashion equivalent of leaving your Christmas lights up for too long? But, it’s still cold! Really, really cold depending on where you’re at the in the U.S. And, yet, early spring styles are starting to bloom in stores — soft pastels, subdued flora and fauna prints, breezy blouses and lightweight chinos.
The solution: Go nautical. A chunky white and navy striped sweater or a preppy long-sleeved striped dress will keep you cozy — but is less winter wonderland and more springtime dreaming.
Old Navy’s early spring collection has lots of “sea-worthy” nautical pieces that are great for transitioning between seasons. When you shop with ShopAtHome.com, you’ll save with dozens of coupons, plus earn 3 percent Cash Back on all of your Old Navy purchases.
Here’s some of our favorite pieces and styling tips and tricks for when you get on board (see what we did there?) with the nautical trend.
- Ponte knit blazer layered over a T-shirt. A knit blazer is perfect for this time of year — not a wintery tweed or wool, but far from a breezy fabric. For a casual look, pair with some boat shoes and on top of a T-shirt. Dress it up with heeled ankle boots and a more structured, button-up. The blazer comes in a white and blue stripe and come spring, it’s perfect for pairing with white jeans and a crisp white T-shirt for a preppy, Hamptons kind of a look.
- Women’s textured sweaters in a navy blue knit combo. We love this paired with a pair of winter white jeans and underneath an army green jacket. Extra prep points for a collared white shirt underneath.
- Nautical accessories. Warm up your winter look a little bit with some nautical-themed accessories. We’re digging the suede boat shoes, pointed dorsay shoes (pictured), striped jersey navy-and-white infinity scarf and the structured navy bowler bag. Any of these added to an outfit add a subtle hint of spring.
