Ahoy! This weeks Wear it 3 Ways has gone crazy for winters version of nautical delights! This super insular navy garment is sure to keep you warm through the stormy weather and is a fantastic piece to wear on days you don’t want to be messed with. Some historical fun facts about sailors and their uniforms:

  1. Sailors standardized uniforms were introduced in 1857
  2. Sailors routinely smothered tar on their ponytails to keep their hair from getting caught in machinery!
  3. Most relevant to you style mavens, touching a sailors collar was considered good luck.

In keeping with the militant nature of The Sailors Sweater (coming soon to *Vintage Boutique), it was only natural that I lace up tight with my cherry Docs and slip into some super skinny black jeans. Check out Tripp NYC’s Skinny Jean and a great selection of Dr. Martens. Try a chunky knit scarf to add a little texture such as the Grace Scarf in Zebra or the Cinch Sweater Scarf in Black. Lastly, add a cute crossbody purse to complete the look, like the Tayla iPhone Pouch in Black Leather.

For a look that’s less monochromatic, add a little denim to the mix. Try pairing some short denim shorts with some black tights, and you’ve got an easy last minute look in the bag! For a similar look try one of *Vintage Boutique‘s great denim minis such as the Guess Light Denim Skirt or the Sports Fever Denim Skirt.

In this third look I go back to black, (big fan of Amy Winehouse…) but steer away from the casual, and move into a chicer look with a black mini and some wedged heels. Try Mink Pink’s Touch And Go Skirt and this pair of wedge heels.
