Even if you aren’t planning to get within 100 miles of the water the trend this summer is an interpretation of the maritime look. The one featured here is very low key and can be worn both on and off the shore. Everything works here if you are on deck sailing the high seas except the Macalister swede boots which can easily be traded out for Sperry top-siders.
The pull over weather resistant hooded jacket will keep you warm and dry when you are out enjoying nautical fun whether you are in P-Town or Cherry Grove and when the temperatures drop at night. To keep the look easy wear a simple t-shirt underneath which will also give you an alternative look for when you get back on shore and the temperatures or the company you’re with get a little hot. Wear a slimming pair of shorts, linen is great for these occasions.
This look will compliment Dandi’s of all sizes and shapes. Just make sure and get the jacket to fit like you would a sweatshirt. If you get it too big it will add extra bulk to your shape. Oh, and don’t forget your accessories, the days of not wearing a belt are over so pick a great one that compliments the colors and the fabrics you are wearing, along with the perfect pair of sunglasses and you will not only be sharp but comfortable as well.
