While Andy Samberg’s hit song “I’m On A Boat” might be a giant inspiration for this look for less, I don’t think his “swim trunks and flippy-floppy’s” is the look I want you to achieve. But his boating adventures and dreams are the perfect inspiration for nautical style. From anchors to stripes, nautical is definitely a hot style this summer.
If “I’m On A Boat” isn’t inspiring you, check out these dreamy pics as some inspirations for these summer looks. During these sweltering days of summer, a nice trip on a boat is what we all need to keep from sweating to death.
Boating look number one! Pull a classic white v-neck from your closet and pair it with a loose but stunning red scarf. I am in love with these high-waisted royal blue shorts with gold button details on the waist band. These shorts define the nautical look. Pair with some braided gold sandals and you are set for your boating adventures.
Total Cost = $79.84
For your nautical escapades try this black and white peplum top from ModCloth. Pair this top with some bright red shorts for a punch of color. This gold chain necklace from Banana Republic is the perfect nautical accessory, it’s worth the splurge because it is the perfect statement necklace for any outfit, especially perfect for a nautical look. Throw on a pair of Sperry’s with this outfit and you won’t be able to take them off for the rest of the summer. I wear my Sperry’s almost everyday because they’re practical yet stylish. These classic boating shoes complete the look!
Total Cost = $204.49
Or for an easy and breezy boating look check out this dress from ModCloth with blue stripes and a matching red belt. A pair of nautical anchor earrings in navy and gold makes for the perfect nautical accessory. Check out these wedges from PacSun that can easily be worn all summer long, definitely worth buying!
So take a boating adventure minus the rap song (unless you prefer it) this year and set sail into the nautical look with these adorable looks!
