If you are wondering what one of the biggest fashion trends for spring and summer this year are, well, I am here with the answer...nautical wear!

That's right fabulous fashion 4 sensible style readers, it's time to break out some stripes, patriotic red, white and blue and jump on board your nearest boat to hit the open seas! OK, so you don't necessarily have to be on board a boat or ship to sport this look...hehe...but get ready to have a little fun and make it look like you are while being oh so stylish! :)

I have created an affordable casual and dressier version of the look incorporating similar items in each, which hopefully helps you see how you can create two different looks with items you might already have, but by changing it up a bit, switching a couple out and/or adding some. Also, don't hesitate to dress your nails with a radiant red nail polish to make them pop!

Remember, you can always pair these looks with a navy blue, red or white wrap/light weight scarf or great white or jean jacket, cropped or full length, in case it gets chilly...especially if you are lucky enough to be on a boat! :)

Actually, I, myself, just purchaced the blue and white off the shoulder cropped shirt and anchor necklace at Forever 21 and thought it would be fun to build the look from there and create a look off of it for you all to match the upcoming trend! I'll be sure to post a pic later of me sporting the outfit as soon as I do!

This trend is also going to be fabulous for the 4th of July and I think one you can get a lot of wear out of since it paris with some pretty basic and classic pieces you might already have! Feel free to offer you own suggestions and leave any questions and/or ideas in the comment section below!

Until next time...
