I may be jumping the gun here but I just had to share some nautical trends I found that I’m dying to wear once the weather warms.
I have a big obsession with nautical styles – from striped dresses to handbags and accessories. I love it all!
This spring I can’t wait to wear this blue and white stripe cropped playsuit I recently bought.
Nautical Cropped Playsuit (Buy here)
The quality is actually surprisingly good for the price. I was a little skeptical a first but for $11 I figured why not try. The photos of the playsuit is what you’re actually getting so there weren’t any surprises when my package arrived. I’m petite, usually an XXS – XS in tops and 00p in bottoms (and a D cup) and this fits me pretty well both top and bottom.
I am pretty happy with my purchase. For $11, this was such a great find!
My next great find? It’s this blue and White striped maxi dress.
Blue & White Chiffon Maxi Dress (Buy here)
This dress has a side slit which wasn’t really made obvious from the photos. Also, I took a gamble here too because I’ve seen lesser quality ones that go for $10 or less and I thought for sure this was probably the same quality but at a higher price.
Also, the length for this dress is about 53 inches. So if you’re petite and looking to pair this up with heels, this would be a great length for you.
I’ve also been on the hunt for a cute, striped mesh dress since that seems to be in style this season.
Blue Striped Mesh Flare Half-Sleeve Dress (Also in white) (Buy here)
I am incredibly happy with this purchase. The online pictures are exactly what you get. I ordered the Blue as blue tends to look better with my hair color, but the dress also comes in White.
Dress is made of a thick material with a sturdy back zip, and is full lined. Also comes with the matching belt. The bottom half of the dress is a bit fluffy but not so much so that you look like you’re wearing a tutu.
All in all, I think this dress is such a good find! And it’s only $28! Be sure to double check the size chart as these dresses are generally made using Asian size measurements (perfect for me!).
As for some accessories, I’ve found a couple of handbags. Although my all time favorite is the Michael Kors Mono Stripe Hamilton Tote. You may still find a few selling on Ebay.
But, I did find some great alternatives.

Michael Kors Marina Striped Large Canvas Grap Tote (Buy here)
Kate Spade New York Reid Street Large Tote (Buy here)
I personally would check out your nearest TJMaxx to see if you can find the same Michael Kors Marina tote. Last time I stopped by at a TJ’s, I saw a few of those on sale for less than $150.
Finally, who doesn’t love jewelry? Ever since I laid my eyes on this La Mer Ocean Blue Nautical watch, I just had to have it! I am super psyched to wear this in the spring time!
Unfortunately, I don’t think La Mer makes this style and color anymore, however I did find a much cuter version that I think you will appreciate.
La Mer Collections Portofina Gold Charm Blue & White Nautical Wrap Watch (Buy here)
This watch is a little pricey (usually La Mer watches go for $100+), but they are so well made. Great quality leather and 14k gold plated if you buy the gold charm version.
Are you a nautical style lover? And are you as excited as I am to sport these trends? If you have some nautical trends you’d like to share, I’d love to see them! I’m always on the lookout for more styles!
