Spring-time and nautical stripes go hand in hand- a timeless chic classic trend that welcomes in the change of season as well as the anticipation and hope of what Summer may bring. Nautical inspired fashion, especially strappy wedges, are flattering for all and look great while doing fun, springtime activities in the warm weather.

Fashion icons have been known to make the nautical look radiant and chic over the years. Jackie O. shined in nautical stripes and over-sized sunglasses in the famous photo of the former first lady sitting on a boat. This look is simple yet chic, and is perfect for a day on the beach or lunch out to sea.

Ali McGraw sported red and white stripes while falling into forbidden love in the romantic 1970’s movie, Love Story.  Navy and red striped shorts paired with the silver Akira flat and the Montage red tote work perfectly together for a cute look. Sport it for an outdoor lunch date or to stroll around shopping.

During the 1980s film Summer Lovers, Daryl Hannah walked along the exotic, white sand beaches of Santorini, Greece in strappy sandals.  The tan Makenna banded wedge is a great accessory for any island vacation and will cause you to crave your own flirty summer love.

The black and white striped sleeveless shirtdress puts a modern spin on the nautical outfit worn by the classically beautiful style icon, Audrey Hepburn. Embody this look by wearing a black and white striped shirt paired with a white short to create perfect summertime fashion. A crisp shirtdress worn with studded gladiator sandals add a little bit of an edge to a classic look.

Any nautical look will make a lady look stylish and fresh as the warm Spring air heats us up!
