Anchors Away, Nautical Looks Are Here To Stay!

I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of Spring this year, as it has been an extremely harsh winter for the typically mild Southeast region.  I have decided to ignore the fact that Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow earlier this month and prepare my closet for the spring season.

One trend I am glad is still relevant, in the ever changing world of fashion, is the nautical look.  Nautical apparel has stood the test of time, and is once again a must have for spring 2010.  This trend can be seen on celebrities and runways alike, and the best part…it can easily translate into real world wear.

Celebrity Trendsetters:

Olivia Palermo struts down the street in a nautical striped shirt perfectly paired with a navy pencil skirt.

One of my all-time favorites, Kate Hudson, looks effortlessly chic in this breezy cotton nautical striped day dress.

Real World:

For those of us with runway tastes on a “real world” budget the nautical look is easy to sport without breaking the bank.  Check out these inexpensive versions inspired by the runway looks:

This chic nautical dress is an affordable alternative to the Derek Lam collection.  It is available at Charlotte Russe for a mere $26.99!

I just purchased this cotton delight from Old Navy last weekend and I love it!  It is the perfect cross between Kate Hudson’s dress and the Derek Lam runway look.  I can already see this being my go-to dress for any day outing.  Now, all I need is for the weather to cooperate.  Come on spring!
