Nautical: The New Preppy Trend

This spring, we are going back to the basics, American style, because there is a new nautical era in place, and it is all about red, white, and blue!

A classic color combined with a revamped design is the new preppy style. On a casual day, this trend will be an easy look to pull together and get you on the move. The technique used to mix the three true-blood American colors are solely based off of individual style. Go for all red with some blue and white accessories to tone all of the colors down. If you want to go all out, then sport a red and white striped crop top and navy trousers. The combinations are endless, making this one of the most popular trends of the season.

The secret to tying your look together once you have all of your pieces is making sure you pay attention to the very little details. Accessories and shoes will be crucial for pulling off this nautical trend. A white point-toe pair of heels is already taking over spring, and it can be incorporated into this nautical style. Add edge and charisma to your day dress by pairing it with a white pump to complete your look. Accessories can be statement pieces,but be sure to not bring in too many other loud colors, and stick to the usual metallics, instead. All in all, be sure to have fun with your look and be comfortable!
