Fashion Trend: Nautical

As summer approaches, it seems that the perennial nautical “trend” is once again making the rounds. Sea-worthy colors and details are all over, and even if a Cosmo on board a 100’ yacht is nowhere in the near future for you, you can still indulge style-wise. Red, white and blue are the colors to consider (though beware of looking like a walking Fourth of July banner), and mostly we like the nautical-inspired details—like rows of buttons, cut canvas skimmers, and boat-ready bags. Some nautical picks to have you sailing into summer (sorry, that was bad . . . ):

Xhilaration Sally Canvas Skimmers,  on sale $10.49, Target.
