Fashion earns seaworthy stripes for spring.
With its calming navy-and-white palette and crisp signature stripes, nautical style is perennial. This season, though, upgrade the classic look with fresh takes on everything from sneakers to swimwear. The key is to keep the silhouette simple, the tones true-blue, and the attitude airily nonchalant. After all, you wouldn’t want to go overboard.
