A Classy Combination
The nautical mod style stole our hearts this spring and says it's still hot for summer. Even if you don’t have a private yacht to luxuriate on, you can sail away to a sunny hideaway when you mix and match these cute accessories and separates.
4 tips to wearing the nautical trend
A simple bow clutch can take any outfit from "blah" to "wow!" Pair it with an amazing jacket that sports vintage detail like the Orla Kiely number above and you'll look amazing no matter where you're heading this summer.
Don't be afraid to mix black, red, and navy, either. While not traditional, it can be a classy combination that takes your look to a whole new level.
Don't forget to grab a pair of chic rain boots to go with any outfit. They're an absolute necessity for the mod summer style. The Sadie rain boot by Sperry Top-Sider provides a little bit of a wedge to enhance your leg line and make you look taller and thinner while keeping your feet warm and dry.
Short, mod cut dresses and pleated skirts are also super chic this season. Their fun style in classy cuts and patterns, like the Justene Plisse skirt above, make them staple peices for your wardrobe this summer.
