This year, everything from tops to handbags and bikinis have  nautical themed  stripes. The trend is huge – but why look like everyone else when you can get these one-of-a-kind, handmade Etsy accessories to satisfy for your sailor cravings? Now you can sing,  “I’m On a Boat!” at the top of your lungs in style.

Raise your hand if you had one of those white rope sailor bracelets in high school. This Sailor Knot Bracelet in Natural and Gold ($18)  is a cooler cousin to the classic – we love the gold clasp and large knot detail. Thanks, Etsy seller The Vamoose.

Not only is this Octopus Locket Necklace Red and Gold ($38) an original design with an antique finish (read: no one else will have anything like it), but it has a secret compartment. My inner 12-year-old is dying; thank you, Etsy seller Cosmic Firefly.

The knot pattern on this Summer in Nantucket Wristlet Clutch ($24) by Etsy seller Cathy’s Totes is perfect – whether you actually do summer in Nantucket, or just pretend.

This oversize 24K Gold Bezeled White Coral Pendant Necklace ($79) is such a great way to make a statement with the nautical trend if you love big jewelry. The white coral and gold fixture are such a perfect pair. Bravo, Etsy seller Iris Jewelry Design.

We love the turquoise bead and large gold chain of these Nautical Necklaces ($22 each) from Etsy seller Olivia Clare. Not only are they hand-crafted in Hawaii, but shipping is free worldwide.

Okay, we know this one’s not an accessory – but how freakin’ cool is this Coral Pillow ($25) by Etsy seller Freshline. We love everything about it – the colors, the pattern, the way it will spruce up any dull couch color.
