Continuing on with the spring 2009 trend reports… Another key look for this season will be nautical. If you’re searching for a big way to buy into the trend, look no further than this gorgeous dress by Chloe ($2,185).
It’s a beautiful piece with staying power since it doesn’t scream “In the Navy!” The stripes bring the trend home but the uneven lines and slightly distressed fabric will keep it relevant for years to come.
If you want a more literal interpretation, go for this nautical striped sweater by Burberry ($225).
I would pair this with a dark trouser jean for a crisp, clean look or with a dark skinny or straight leg jean for a more relaxed feel. (Stay away from a bootcut or you’ll wind up looking mumsy.)
