5 Nautical Must-Haves

Ahoy, matey! I've been a long-time connoisseur of the striped shirt. It's a classy, sophisticated, but fun wardrobe staple that looks good with jeans, flats, boots or skirts. Now, let's delve a little deeper into the nautical trend. You can wear all these things at once, so you look like your name is Skipper, or wear one at a time for just a touch of oceanic flare. Anchor Duffel, Fred Flare ($26, pictured).The perfect bag to fit your telescope and navigational tools, or you know -- your wallet and cell phone.

♥ Sailor Bracelets, mysticknotwork ($4). This Etsy shop sells basic sailor bracelets in a bunch of different colors and combinations. I'm digging this bright green and red and white one. For $4 each, I'll get both.

Linen Blend Sailor Pants, Forever 21 ($17.80). Do a little jig in these comfy, high-waisted, button-front pants. Look ma, no zippers!

 Sperry Topsider Bahama Tonal, Delia*s ($55.50). Boat shoes are preppy, but also ironic (how many of us actually wear boat shoes on a boat?). No matter the case, they look sweet and provide excellent traction.

Pier-Stripe Sweatshirt, J.Crew ($35, sale). Here it is -- the perfect, comfy striped sweatshirt. Challenge: show off one shoulder for your best Jean Seberg impression.
