Get the Look: Nautical Stripes

Nautical stripes are on display at so many different stores for spring right now. This is a timeless and classic look, but it's so fresh and on trend for spring. The best thing about this look is that you can buy a horizontal striped t-shirt for a steal and look like Coco Chanel herself.

To get the classic nautical shirt, try these options for a whole lot less. Pair with a pair of dark wash wide leg jeans (or boot cut) and a pair of wedges and you'll be styling come spring. This Ann Taylor striped tee is sure to be adored by preppy types everywhere and it's only $38! Or, try this classic nautical striped shirt for less than $20 from Forever 21.

If you are looking for modern take on the nautical stripe, this Calypso Breton Tank is perfect. Also, J. Crew has a variation of the nautical trend, with the sailor sweater.

And last but certainly not least, high end designer Jason Wu has designed a stunning and unique top incorporating the trend.

Do any of these picks strike your fancy?
