We're starting the week off with a rainy, gloomy day here in New York City, so I won't be making it too far away from the stoop coverage around my neighborhood. I am, however, making the best of the wet weather with a proper nautical look that is always on trend during these rainy, spring months. It's such an easy look to put together with pieces you should already own in your spring wardrobe. It's all about blue stripes and lighter denim when trying to pull off the nautical trend... if you're really brave, white denim will definitely kick it up a notch!
Every guy should own some white denim. It might take a little more effort to keep them clean but it's definitely worth it! Don't worry about the whole 'no white after labor day' rule, no one follows that dumb rule anymore... you'll be wearing your lighter denim all year round once you break your white-jeans virginity. These J. Crew Japanese Selvedge Jeans are slightly heavier that are perfect for these cooler days. I've had them for about a year and have broken in perfectly no matter how they're styled. If you're going for your own nautical look, keep it simple with horizontal stripes and cooler, blue tones... just throw on a great fitting blazer if you don't want to go too casual.
