One of the most timeless trends for the spring and summer is the nautical trend, characterized by navy stripes, classic whites, and pops of red.
True to the season’s hot and hazy days, nautical fashion incorporates laidback pieces that are not only comfortable but still exude just the right amount of style despite its casual nature!
Not only is this one of the season’s hottest trends, it’s also one of mine because nautical fashion combines just the right amount of casual chic and preppy cool, defined by pieces that are simple yet stylish 🙂
A mock two-piece dress is more practical than actually donning a blouse-and-skirt combo in the summer because California’s summer days are so hot, I don’t want to have to wear any unnecessary clothing 😉
In picking a dress that combines the staple navy and white stripes of nautical fashion with this year’s hottest trend of denim pieces, this look emulates a classically sweet yet casually stylish vibe that’s perfect for any of the many summer parties that are in the social calendar 🙂
A big plus – mock two-piece dress with a waistband that hits a little above the waist does a marvelous job of hiding away little food babies that might make a surprise guest appearance when we’ve indulged a little too much at that backyard barbecue or garden party (because I know I’m often guilty of this hehehe)! 😀
Paired with a small bag in a white and silver color, this whole outfits rather muted colors get a pop of sparkle.
Rather than going for heels, I finished this look with a simple pair of strappy sandals because they complete the outfit with an air of laidback preppiness 🙂
