Nautical chic has been in for seasons. The man whom we credit with this phenomena: Mr. Ralph Lauren. When in doubt, follow his lead.

We found our GOTM out in the village with her blues and whites styled just right.

This Carter striped tank scoops at the neck and pairs well with an investment piece like J Brand ankle skinnies.

Complete the look with the Cabana, a light-weight, heavy-look necklace.

Style Note: Choose a striped top that best flatters your body type. For us, we would choose long sleeves. For you, rock those toned biceps.
