Week O’Nautical – Nautical Fit and Flare

Nautical Stripes On A Most Flattering Style

Nautical Stripes On A Most Flattering Style

When you think nautical you think stripes… or at least I do.  What’s a better way to beat the summer heat than in a nautical striped fit and flare dress!?  What’s great about this style is it pretty much flatters every body type and the flare skirt allows you to keep a bit cooler than a fitted pencil skirt style.  Add navy nautical stripes and you’ve got yourself a Week O’Nautical winner!

I love how even an all over striped dress is really a blank canvas.  The basic navy and white really are quite neutral so a pop of color works really well against it.  The higher neckline is a perfect base for a statement necklace.  I styled this dress with the new mark. Natural Charm Necklace.  This necklace features a genuine tiger eye which plays perfectly with my tortoise watch (Avon).

I played off those light pink stones on this necklace with a bright pink lip (Avon Color Indulgence Lip Color in Orchid Petal) and a coral clutch (mark. Fade To Fab Clutch).  Plus I love how great this clutch looked the last time I wore it with navy stripes (see here).  In addition to this great statement necklace I added a great statement ring with opal stones reminiscent of the ocean (mark. Irresistibly Iridescent Ring) — you know that nautical tie in, even if I’m the only one who gets it…
