A Nautical Theme

Summertime is the time to think nautical theme in your clothing, accessories and even jewelry. It doesn’t always feel right but in the summer it seems more appropriate. I don’t know why, it just does. It might have something to do with the month of July which is next month and its red, white and blue theme. Nautical looks best when it comes in these colors. Now I’m talking nautical theme not dressing like a sailor in the navy.


A nautical theme is when you use colors along with a piece or two to give a suggestion. A pair of jeans with a striped shirt, anchors earrings or a scarf with sea creatures works beautifully to convey a nautical theme without overwhelming. These pieces work perfectly for a weekend at the beach or if you just want to give yourself the feeling of the ocean when you’re stuck in the city.


Have an arm party by adding in an anchor bracelet
You want to be sleek with just a touch of nautical embellishment, go for some jewelry. An anchor on a bracelet amongst a stack is super cool. Don’t forget to slip in some rope bracelets; those that are made from marine rope in red white or blue will give you the look of an arm party at the beach. You can also carry all your daily essentials in a color blocked tote bag. Not only is it handy, it will hold everything you need whether you’re at the beach or just running errands around town.


For those cooler summer days don’t forget you can wear a nautical theme on a scarf. Small sea creatures, anchors or just some strips can add a little pizazz to an outfit. A scarf looks great with a chambray or a crisp white shirt, if the scarf has a pattern keep the shirt a solid. If things warm up you can always take it off and tie it to your bag to use later. Nautical themes are great you just want to use subtle touches, don’t dress like you own a yacht. You don’t want to be a caricature.
