{31 Days of Coastal Style} Dressing Coastal Style

I've had fashion on my mind today, so I thought I'd sort of do a "crossover" post from decorating your home, to decorating yourself! :) Here are 3 simple ways to add coastal style to your outfits, no matter what the season or occasion!

(Disclaimer: I wear skirts all the time, as a matter of personal preference, so the outfits you see here will reflect that-- but the fashion concept is the same, no matter what you wear!) ;)

1) Stripes

Thick or thin, and no matter what color, stripes are a perfect way to bring a touch of "nautical" preppy-ness (is that a word?) to any outfit! And they're not just for casual wear anymore...

2) Navy and white

Navy and white are a classic coastal pairing, not only in decor, but in fashion as well! But navy seems to be having its heyday now, even more than ever...

3) Textural accessories

Rope-- or knotted-- belts, braided bracelet, or textured leather provide the subtle finishing touch to your coastal getup.
