The nautical look is huge for Spring 2011 – and looks great paired with 70?s-style pieces like wide leg jeans and wedges. To recreate this look, balance horizontal stripes on top with a pair of bell bottom jeans, like J Brand’s “Love Story” or Mother Denim’s “Wilder” cut. A dark wash lends a preppier look, while a lighter wash yields a more casual vibe. I accessorized with more navy: a soft, suede Proenza Schouler messenger bag. For shoes, I picked tan Pedro Garcia espadrilles to tie in the season’s earthy trend. If you want to take the maritime reference beyond navy and stripes, chunky gold jewelry or rope detailing is also a nice touch.
