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:
- Sailors standardized uniforms were introduced in 1857
- Sailors routinely smothered tar on their ponytails to keep their hair from getting caught in machinery!
- 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.
