Pulling off the nautical trend without going full-on "sailor" can be a bit tricky, but some summery wardrobe staples never fail to get the point across stylishly. The perfect striped tee, trendy takes on the boat shoe, raffia totes and clutches – when worn in moderation, the whole "yacht party chic" look can be accomplished without verging on costume-y, and that less-is-more mentality continues this summer with striped accessories. Sunglasses, belts, bags, and more – these simple yet stylish pieces add the perfect dose of nautical inspiration to any casual seasonal outfit, letting you embrace the trend without going overboard (pun intended)! You'll look and feel undeniably summery, but no one will be asking you to take them out to sea (unless, of course, you have a friend with a yacht)!
