Hey, sailor! Nautical is often a trend that pops up during the warmer months, but this time around it has more of a French twist. Lanvin got into the spirit with a lightweight pea coat adorned with oversize buttons, while Sonia Rykiel put a chic and breezy mariner spin on wide-leg trousers. Just keep in mind that a little goes along way here, so no captain’s hats, please.
