{31 Days of Coastal Style} Coastal Color Schemes: Nautical Navy

When you hear the word "nautical", what colors come to mind? Most likely your mind goes straight to navy and white. Conversely, it's virtually impossible to see a crisp navy and white stripe without thinking of flapping sails and rolling waves!

Navy and white are the "little black dress" of coastal style-- they look good pretty much anywhere! "Crisp", "preppy", and "classic" are all adjectives that describe navy & white nautical style.

Also, like a little black dress, you can dress navy & white up or down by pairing with other colors, like red, yellow, coral, green, or even gold!
