But, just because you are landlocked, doesn’t mean you cannot pull off a nautical print in the city or even at work. The style is characterized by horizontal stripes, rope or anchor prints (usually navy, black or red) and crisp white skirts and pants. It is not only for the casually dressed, there are just a about a millions of chic and even egdy looks you can create with these ingredients.
Since all the characteristic colors are cool, this is definitely a look more suited for ladies with cool skin, hair and eye color. Combine with silver jewelry for maximum impact.
In case your colors are warm, I would advise you to stay away from the crisp white and do ivory instead. Navy, black and true red are neutrals, so you can go for that. In fact, I do think navy can look really great combined with accessories in gold, tan or warm brown (see Look 2 of your 3 Ways To Wear Nautical Print).

As some of you have seen on my Facebook page, I was helping my friend Carolina Caruso in styling her fashion shoot (check out her blog for the full sneak peek!). The clothes and accessories were kindly provided by FinforWorld, a new fashion initiative aiming to support emerging designers around the globe.
One of the looks was a classic nautical look that you could wear to any day or night time event by the water: A crisp white top, statement pants with anchor print, silver wedges and a clutch (in snake print, just to say you are actually a city girl!).
While the look was just perfect for the shooting location, I was wondering what else you could do with those anchor print pants in every day life, assuming that most of us do not own a boat and are not members of a yacht club… unfortunately.
