Spring Trend: Preppy Sailor by Tally Weijl

This season it’s all about the Preppy Sailor! Sets sail in style this Spring with a collection full of classic sailor-inspired attire! Think strong Colorblocking and Nautical stripes embellished with ropes and anchors a-hoy! The look is fresh and playful.Pleated skirts and colored shorts are styled together with gold buttoned blazers. This season Girls get ready to sail a sea of Style!

The look this Spring is fresh and fun and the silhouettes speak for themselves. Flirtyflared skirts are given an extra girly edge with pleats and tube dresses are adorned with ruffles.

Pants this season are bright: think royal blues and rich reds. High-waisted sailor pants and colorful shorts are key this Spring, worn with navy blue or striped blazersadorning brass gold buttons.

This year with stripes, anything goes! It’s all about Contrast colors: try thick stripes or pin stripes, pile them on and have fun!

Gold buttons are a signature style of the sailor uniform! This season they are not only embellishing the blazer, but can also be found on skirts and girly knits to add that extra bit of sailor flare to the outfit.

Anchors and ropes a-hoy! From large nautical rope motifs on t-shirts to tiny anchor patterns on skirts! Inspiration for prints and designs were taken from old-school sailor tattoos – some kind of ”I-love-mom-style”! :)

Inspirations for the Preppy Sailor collection came in waves from the catwalk ! From the bold stripes seen at Alice&Olivia to the classic, sophisticated stripes seen atAdamElie Tahari played with bright pants and Chloe Sevigny with colorblocking. My all time favorite trend this season are the flirty flared, pleated skirts seen both at Moschino and Luca Luca… just fabulous!
