Spring fashion has sailor vibes written all over it! Luckily, nautical themes just never go out of style and can be worn anywhere from the office to casual gatherings.
A pair of sailor pants are no doubt an investment for your wardrobe. The double front button placement with a wide leg opening gives these slacks a classic look. Another wonderful aspect is how many options you have for pairing them with great tops and lots of shoe styles (i.e. flats, boat shoes, flip flops, heels, etc).
I like to wear sailor pants with other colors and patterns that have nautical inspirations. To balance the somewhat masculine look of these pants, try pairing them with a feminine top. Here I chose to pair my sailor pants with a striped silk tank. What can I say?…I just can’t seem to get enough of stripes this season! Keep in mind, a pair of navy pants works with so many colors variations including white, red, yellow, beige tones, etc. So don’t be shy to mix it up!
I opted for a more casual sailor look with this outfit by layering it with a bleached out chambray shirt. Maybe I’ll take a page out of Coco Chanel’s book next time and ditch the chambray for a strand of pearls around my neck ;-). Nobody did classic chic better than Coco Chanel!
