A friend of mine was going boating on her birthday and needed the perfect outfit for the day on the water. She enlisted my help in her quest for a nautical chic look. I immediately thought of navy blue, gold, red, and white. These colors remind me of a sailors uniform and a classic palette.
I had a few options in mind. The first being, crisp, white shorts with a light weight navy sweater, thick linked gold necklace, a boat shoe and a red lip. The next being a navy dress, white open stitched sweater tossed over the shoulders, a gold sandal, and a red lip. The last being a more casual, fun look of lived in jean shorts or jeans, a white or red sweater, maybe even has an anchor or fun boat related saying printed on it, a stack of bracelets or a vintage Chanel earring, and red flats.
We ended up hitting the jackpot for the classic look at Banana Republic and they were having one of their amazing 40% off sales which made everything super affordable. She went with a pair of white denim shorts, a navy three quarter sleeve sweater, a thick gold linked necklace, a white Sperry boat she she already owned, and a bright red lip. Her look was on point for a Boating Birthday Bash.
I have included photos below for inspiration for you for your summer boating excursions. These looks are fit for a fancy yacht on the deep blue sea as well as a day trip off your neighborhood harbor.
