Season after season, one of our favorite trends that keeps coming back to American Eagle Outfitters is the nautical trend. What says spring more than pieces inspired by the sea? This season, give a nod to nautical style by layering your look with chunky knits and navy stripes. We love iconic maritime-inspired pieces like the Striped Sweater mixed with modern, muted camp and a timeless dark denim jacket. Camo is a great base if you want to mix prints—and adds edgy cool to a typically preppy, clean-cut look. Add rugged chukkas (get even bolder and wear them with a pair of bright socks to add a pop of color) and a pair of sunglasses to complete the look.
Our Manager of Styling, Lauren, took a moment with Tommy during our Spring 2014 photo shoot in San Francisco to talk a little bit more about how to put together this must-have look with a subtle nautical vibe. Check out the video above to see how she styled this look and show us how you wear the nautical trend on Twitter and Instagram with #AEOSTYLE for a chance to be on our AE.com Style Gallery.
