Spring Fashion, Nautical Style

Posted 3 years ago by

When winter turns to spring, there comes a need for newness and change in every area of life, especially in fashion. For most people, spring comes as a huge relief after the cold and dreary winter. This relief plays out in fashion with the response of bright colors, light fabrics, flowery patterns and slim, crisp shapes.

One thing about changing seasons that can be difficult, is trying to keep a budget for a new wardrobe.  Tj Maxx and Marshall’s carry designer and fashionable clothes for low and affordable prices.  Also, make sure you check out sales, and clip your coupons for great deals at department stores.  Forever 21 is also a great place to find cute, inexpensive clothes for the spring.  Spring fashion is the most exciting, luxuriating in the sharp contrast of cold turning to warm and the subtle elegance of new growth.

With all of the impulses to change up the wardrobe, the best way to keep spring fashion classy is to turn to the casual, sophisticated styles inspired by the Hamptons. The atmosphere is full of freshness, laid back elegance and classic chic. The combination of the relaxed environment with tastes for high fashion brings forth the epitome of spring style.

Characteristic of relaxing in your Hamptons homes; nautical fashion is summed up with clear, crisp ensembles and pieces in natural materials such as cotton, linen and silk, colors with a flavor of sea breezes and classic, well defined feminine shapes. With timeless pieces that easily transition from day to night, from the beach to the city, it’s easy to create a personal style by combining certain wardrobe staples and accessorizing in a unique way. With a destination like the Hamptons in mind, a nautical flavored fashion emerges that is timeless, ageless, classy, unique and easy going.

Spring is also a time to bring out all of the lightness and fun. Don’t get caught up in trying to go all out. Let the focus of the wardrobe be practicality and relaxation, and the beauty and style will look effortless without getting in the way.

Daytime

For daytime, have fun with light, simple outfits in crisp fabrics. Focus on clear shapes that have a great silhouette. Dressing in solid colors is always classy and timeless and makes accessorizing simple. Save money on clothes shopping by investing in classic pieces, like denim pencil skirts, great jeans, basic tees and cardigans, that can be paired with lots of other things. Just because simplicity is the goal doesn’t mean it has to be boring!

Pull out striking colors and dramatic shapes. Don’t forget stripes! Enjoy stripes in every area of fashion, from a nautical bag to a striking black and white top to a flirty skirt. Chambray is both trendy and timeless, so look for a flattering dress that works for at home, for errands and with a cardigan for a casual night out and use it as a centerpiece this spring.

Evening

The fun of evenings in spring comes with converting day looks to something a little more dressy. Exchange a cardigan for a blazer, cover up a light dress with a chic jacket, or take the sweater off to show off the pretty details of a cute frock. Change flats for heels and put hair up in an up-do, and the look is complete! The look of Hamptons fashion is effortless and graceful, so don’t try too hard.

 Accessorizing

Accessorize the simplicity of the spring look with favorite, personal details. Wear lots of heels and open sandals in natural leather, accentuating the breezy naturalness of the nautical feel. To bring out the nautical feel, choose jewelry in brass, from necklaces to bangles. Keep jewelry light, since spring at the Hamptons is relaxed and classy. Enjoy the fresh nautical fashions this spring, relaxing in effortless style.
