Trend Alert: Ahoy, Ladies!

imageSwarthy seafaring sailors, romantic Gatsby-era yachting, and — of course — the lure of sea inspire spring’s nautical trend. But don’t confuse ocean-inspired with beachy. We’re not talking about sarongs and sherbet colors and, basically, anything you’d wear while sipping an umbrella drink. Think more functional: rope detailing on belts and shoes, water-friendly canvas for totes, pants, and shorts, and lots of button detailing. High waists and boxy shapes are also reminiscent of sailors’ garb, as are stripes. Lots and lots of wide, horizontal stripes.

As far as colors go, anything you’d see from the upper deck of a fabulous yacht is a good bet. Crisp sailors’ white, navy blue, black, the breezy light blue of a tranquil sky and the harsh red of a sunset all show up in maritime fashion. For a few starter pieces, try Forever 21’s sailor tunic ($13.80), complete with front buttons and those ubiquitous horizontal stripes, and Ocean Liner trousers from Anthropologie ($98), wide-legged and perfect for shooting the breeze. J.Crew’s cropped white raffia jacket ($298) is perfect to throw on after the sun sets and, for warmer days, Parameter’s navy button-front sailor shorts ($105) will have you swabbing the decks in style. As for accessories, Gap’s khaki espadrilles with rope detailing ($38) and MICHAEL Michael Kors’ preppy red-and-black striped Montauk tote ($218) are great seafaring options. Try not to get too themey with the look (it’s easy to do); Fred Flare’s enamel anchors necklace ($12) adds just the right touch of life on the high waters to any outfit.
