It’s summer, which means at some point you will probably find yourself in a coastal area. That means your style needs to change with the weather, and accessories are one of the easiest ways to make a quick impact on your look.
Adding any of these 5 accessories should allow you fair winds and good fortune out on the water this summer.
Bracelets are a great way to subtly bring your style to the next level, and nautical bracelets are some of the best looking wrist accessories available, so naturally, we recommend adding one (or two) to your nautical look. For the record, the Alchor bracelet is our favorite nautical wrist accessory.
Another benefit is that bracelets come in a wide range of styles, meaning you can always find a perfect complement to your outfit. If you’re going for the nautical look, go with a sea-inspired rope bracelet, if you’re looking for something a bit more elegant, Elegatto’s anchor bracelets perfectly fit the bill.
There is something about an open chest button-down shirt and a necklace that screams nautical.
Adding a necklace, especially one like this anchor necklace from Elegatto, is sure to elevate your seafaring outfit to the next level.
Also known as a Fisherman’s hat, there’s no better time to pull out your beloved bucket hat than on a boat or in a beachy setting. Bucket hats have withstood the test of time for decades now and they’ll seemingly always have a place in fashion.
Go with a blue or white bucket hat for maximum nautical-ness, but consider ditching the bucket hat if your coastal trip is on the classier side. Bucket hats also earn bonus points for being legitimately helpful when it comes to protecting yourself from the sun.
Who could guess that boat shoes are stylish to wear on a boat? They made a comeback a few years back and have shown staying power.
Just like the rest of this list, boat shoes are something that can instantly turn any outfit into a ‘nautical outfit,’ just make sure you’re wearing them correctly, we better not see any socks.
Obviously, sunglasses had to be on this list. Not only are they essential summer style, they provide much needed protection against the sun, salt, and ocean spray.
We recommend a pair of polarized lenses for even more protection against the sun reflecting off the water.
