Red white and blue may be patriotic but they are also the color palette to a great “classic” trend this summer. We know, can a trend be classic? But when you can imagine or actually look at old photos of Jackie O in one, then, um, yes, a trend can be classic. But this one isn’t just for Classics or equally conservative Smarts. With that awesome pop of red, this one can work for Funs and Organics. Probably what makes this trend so resilient is that it works for all types.

What’s also great is that today’s nautical trend will leave you looking chic this 4th of July instead of an overdressed flag. In my eyes, Marc Jacobs can do no wrong, and this dress just proves my point. You’ll be ready for anything with this jersey dress that meets all the criteria of the nautical trend. If you’re a little tight on cash there is no need to stress you can still obtain this summer look. Stylist Lani Rosenstock says you can put together a red shirt you already own, white pants you already own and you’re good to go.

I think the perfect finish to this look is a great red shoe you really can’t go wrong with it.  Another fun option would be these rope shoes by Gurkee, it doesn’t get more nautical than this. If you’re loving the rope but not digging the shoes this American Eagle bag that comes in red or blue and will tie together any sailor-tastic look.
