Prep Up Your Spring Wardrobe With These So-Fresh Boat Shoes

Okay, okay, it might not be seasonally appropriate to set sail in Nantucket just yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t play the part. And, everyone knows the ultimate lady-of-leisure uniform starts off with a pair of preppy boat shoes.
We may be used to seeing the iconic deck shoe in traditional clean-cut, tan leather, but this season, the go-to iterations are less traditional — think springy pastel, floral and chambray variations. Even if you’re not yacht-ing it up Hamptons-style, these super-comfy flats are the perfect addition to your arsenal of spring-ready shoes — especially for those sweltering days when even a mini-wedge seems like too much work.
