Nautical Summer

One of my favorite trends for summer is the nautical look. There is something so chic and Parisian about red or navy stripes, and it is such an easy look to pull together. If you are worried about stripes making you look wider than you are, make sure to choose a vertical stripe or keep horizontal stripes small and close together. Pair your stripes with jeans or shorts and channel you inner sailor.
