The Life Aquatic

Fashion braves the open seas this season with masculine new takes on the nautical trend.

 

If mention of “nautical” typically makes you seasick—stirring up images of bold navy stripes and boat-necked tees—the latest to flood fashion’s seasonal “decks” will likely surprise you. Void of ships and sails motifs and far from military-inspired costuming (think Gene Kelly in “Anchors Aweigh”), the new maritime styles are decidedly rugged, with mere splashes of reference to the sea and sun. Toggle jackets, chinos and made-for-the-crew shoes in sturdy materials and bleached-out shades define the makings of today’s dapper outdoorsman. Work the look in the captain’s quarters or on dry land this season and into next. Wearable and versatile, when it comes to the trend’s longevity, this ship won’t be sailing anytime soon.
