Pretty & Plus-Sized: 5 Nautical-Themed Looks For Sweet Summer Sailing

A couple years ago, when models came strutting down the runway wearing anchors, sailor stripes, and sea-themed accessories, we thought the nautical theme was just a cute, but passing, fad.

However, it seems that people have fallen in love with the same effortless chic that inspired master designers like Coco Chanel when she was first starting.

Take a glance at our 5 Nautical-themed Looks For Sweet Summer Sailing geared towards the larger woman; maybe donning one of the pieces below will attract your own sailor on leave.

Look: Sexy Sailor

A kitschy necklace with cute little sailors standing at alert, cobalt blue jeans, and some of the sexiest red striped platform heels we’ve ever seen. OK, so maybe you can’t swab the deck in them, but you at least you’ll look hot.

Look: Stranded Mermaid

Our favorite part of this look is the giant sailor sweater (given to the naked mermaid by a passing sailor) and the goldfish orange accents (the same color as her fish parts?).

These comfy chino shorts match the biege in the sweater (which will inevitably cover most of the short anyway):
