When I think of nautical inspired clothing, I think of airy cottons, twill, stripes, anchors, sailboats, rope, and red, white and navy hues. In Part One we explored just these things, but in this post I wanted to share some non typical nautical inspired clothing, or at least it doesn't spring to the fore front of my mind when I think nautical, but they all have a nautical theme, none the less.
I love how all of these sweet dresses are sporting a turquoise color instead of the typical nautical navy shade of blue, but they all have sailboats calling you to the water.
These two dresses have the typical color scheme, but not the typical graphics. Here we have fish or sharks on one dress and a very art deco looking swimmer on the other. Too cute!
The dress on the left has the typical red, white, and blues but has a very abstract pelican print on it. The dress on the right has varying shades of teal or turquoise with seashells and stars, or a very under water scene.
Here we have two beautiful dresses with a sailboat and seascape border. And I have added these yellow wedges for a pop of color.
And finally, we have what I think is the best set. These darling silhouette dresses feel very french and subdued to me, but upon closer inspection you can see the nautical theme. The first one has a print of flamingos, the second has sailboats and lighthouses, and the third has schematic drawings of planes. What do planes have to do with a nautical theme, you ask? Well, the Wright Brothers did their experiments at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina - of course!
Well, there you have my favorite nautically inspired fashion. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. I did not purchase any of them for our trip but I do feel several of them calling my name. Oh, who am I kidding, I want them all!
What do you think, any favorites?
