It’s Fleet Week! The High Seas Meets High Fashion With Our Nautical Obsession

Done right, nautical can be darn cute. But add one too many gold buttons or a white-bordered collar and you could look like you washed up at the Newport Yacht Club after a long liquid lunch. In our books, simple is the only way to good ole sea-faring fashion. And assuming you're on board, we're helping to navigate the murky waters with some of the most adorable nautically laced wares this side of the Atlantic. From Valerie Dumain's dressed-up sailor dress to Motel's playful striped frock, we've chosen pieces you'll want to get decked in all spring and summer long. Happy Fleet Week!
