3.3 Nautical Chic, you can have it too!

After seeing all the fabulous runway look of every designer house, nautical chic played an important role in the spring and resort collection. But, as a normal middle class housewife or a normal high school student like me, it’s hard to afford all the luxurious items. As a responsible fashion blogger, it’s not cool to not include some affordable tips to be nautical chic this spring. All the clothes I will recommend you are all reasonably priced high street brands. Let’s begin!

First, navy white and blue are irreplaceable in a nautical chic look. Shop around at HM or Zara, it’s not hard to find some great blue or white items. For instance, a pair of blue slim fit pencil pants or blue bell bottom. Don’t be afraid to try bell bottom this spring, any oversize pieces will  add a flare of carefree and casual vibe to your look which is very seductive. Spring is a season of shedding the layers, however, keeping a touch of oversize sweaters is a reminiscing of the winter time. Hence, shop those items girls! you need them!

Moreover, another must-have would be a breton top. After the last three posts, I don’t think I need to explain much about this item anymore. This great historic background, and the constant reinvention of it makes breton an absolute classic for spring. You can readily find breton top in Zara in any time, but if you want to go bold and extend this idea, you can try out a cardigan with breton stripes. HM featured heavily with a gorgeous knit breton top, thus I strongly recommend you to have a try. Pair it with a pair of navy pants or skin tight jeans would make you ready for a Sunday getaway to the beach.

Last but not least, accessories are crucial as well. White and gold are the right colors for a nautical chic look. An ivory bracelet or a white watch are some great complimentary the look well, and also golden neckless or rings can accentuate the look to another level. However, you should notice one thing, DO NOT over-accessorize, nautical chic is all about the "chic", too much going on would completely ruin the look in a second. So, please keep it minimum is the best.
