How to style a Nautical Capsule Wardrobe

Nautical styling is big in the fashion world and a great and popular look in the summer.

If you love the style there are so many ways you can create your own nautical capsule wardrobe. Think reds, navy, stripes and all symbols nautical and you can have yourself a full on nautical look.


A great item for your nautical capsule wardrobe is a navy and white striped dress. Choose a navy with white striped fit and flare dress for evening wear or a sheath day dress for day time wear. If would rather wear something in a block color, a red shift dress or a navy fit and flare dress both fit in with the nautical theme.


If you want to go for the complementary look a red cardigan is a great option, as the red contrasts wonderfully against the navy. If you are looking for a lower key look, a white cardigan or navy cardigan will work best.


Skinny jeans in a dark wash fit in great with the navy, red and white of the nautical theme. Dark wash jeans are perfect to cover the navy aspect of the look or if you are a little more daring why not try some red skinny jeans. If you are good at keeping your whites white and like a casual look, white jeans also look great.


When creating your nautical capsule wardrobe there are a number of options for tops. A navy and white striped top is a great classic option for the nautical look, or if you want to use more of a block color you could choose a red t-shirt or a white camisole top.

When it comes to shoes a wide range of different shoes will help keep your capsule wardrobe fresh and suit all styles, from jeans to dresses, smart to casual you will have shoes to suit every occasion. For a more formal look a pair of red sandals will complete your dress, alternatively a pair of navy heels will work the same if you do not like wearing a bold colour such as red. Red wedges are a great option to dress down a dress or smarten up your jeans. Alternatively if you want to fully embrace the nautical theme try some striped navy wedges. For a casual look a pair of navy canvas shoes will work a treat.
