they say that a nautical look never goes out of style. and i quite agree. if you are looking for timeless elegance think navy, think nautical, think stripes. and nothing says spring quite like a nautical look anchored in navy. navy and white is a no-brainer, but it also pairs nicely with a variety of colors. green, yellow, and pink are all color combo’s i favor – it’s a preppy thing of mine. once your color scheme is in place then it’s a matter of adding accessories to give your outfit a bit of zing. pops of red always work or play it safe with white. and metallics will never fail. this is where your personality is allowed to shine so go for it! what do you have to lose? a fashion faux-pas? i think there are worse things in life to contend with.
