There is no more definitive style for spring year after year than nautical.  Spring makes you want to climb aboard your yacht and head for open waters…or at least dress like you do.  So in my look ahead to spring, I have compiled some of my favorite styles inspired by the high seas.  What says nautical more than navy, stripes and anchors?
