Modern retro style may sound incongruent, but trust me it’s not. Especially when it comes to nautical style. This is something that can easily become a complete costume mess (which I often revel in for the kitch of it all), but with these updated pieces you can carry this off.
Even if you choose to look like a WW2 poster. Ain’t nothing wrong with that.
To appease my loved ones, I will often just wear one or two nautical pieces. Not the entire Shirley Temple head to toe that I sometimes end up with. Get some canvas shoes, and an anchor necklace, with a white t-shirt and shorts, and you have a go to summer staple.
