The nautical theme is so hot this season, showing up all over the catwalk and in your favorite shops. But how to wear it without going overboard? Here’s my list of eight nautical-theme accessories, perfect for integrating the look into your wardrobe…
1 Anchored Bag
This tote bag isn’t just handy and pretty, it’s also eco-friendly, because it’s made of recycled sails and rope! It’s roomy enough to store all of your beach-going or vacation day essentials, measuring 18” tall by 17½” wide and 5¾” deep…
2 Anchors Away Striped Thigh High Tights
These eye-catching one-size-fits-most striped thigh-high tights are a fun way to add a little nautical flair to a fun summertime outfit! I’d wear these with a white short-sleeved top and red shorts, with red Mary Janes or t-straps… so cute!
3 Silver Anchor & Pearl Earrings by Rebecca Berry
Price: $19.00 at shopplasticland.com
Are you looking for a slightly more subtle way to wear the nautical theme? These sweet little earrings might be the way! They measure 1” long, and feature a tiny faux pearl at the top and silver-tone anchors below.
4 In the Navy Fisherman’s Hat
I keep a supply of cute hats on hand in case of bad hair emergencies, but this one’s so nice, I’d wear it anytime! It’s made of the softest navy jersey fabric, and is lined in 100% cotton with an elastic strip in back to ensure a snug fit, even in the strongest sea breezes…
5 Sailing-the-Streets Wedges
I loved these wedges even before I noticed the glittery gold-tone anchor and buckle details, mostly because they look so light and comfortable! The dark denim ensures they’ll go with just about anything in your closet, and the cork wedge makes them light and ideal for summer strolling…
6 Glitzy Starfish Earrings
Price: $80.00 at anthropologie.com
Add a splash of color and a hint of the nautical theme to any outfit with these sparkly sterling silver and cubic zirconia starfish earrings. They feature lever-back posts and they’re gorgeous, catching the sunlight every time you turn your head…
7 High Seas Wedges
Oh, more wedges! These ones are so summery, so bright and cheery, you’ll be tempted to wear them every day! I love the tangy red color, and the macramé and rope detailing. They’re made of sturdy, comfortable cotton, and would look smashing with dark denim trousers or shorts!
8 T-Bags Striped Wool Blend Cardigan
Some sea breezes can be chilly, so it’s best to wear or bring a cardigan to sail. This one’s lovely, perfect for warding off the chill, but stylish enough to wear for a night on the town. I’d pair it with white skiny jeans and a hobo bag for max appeal…
I’m a complete sucker for the nautical theme trend, so of course the starfish earrings and wedge sandals are in my shopping cart right now! Which of these nautical themed accessories do you like best, and how would you wear them? Or has another maritime bag or shoe caught your eye? Please let me know!
