We love spring and everything it has to offer: Rising temperatures, blooming flowers and warm breezes—but we’re ready to bring on summer! And to show our enthusiasm for the upcoming season, we decided to kick off our Summer Essentials sale. However, don’t expect to see the typical bright pieces across the board this time around. This season, it’s all about going nautical. That’s because there’s no better way to usher in the season of sunshine than by rocking stripes and anchors. And this uniform isn’t just for the casually dressed—we found tons of goodies that are chic enough to rock on a date or even in your cubicle. Check out a few of our favorite pieces below.
Perfect for a dinner out with your girlfriends or a date night with your beau: This dress. It’s flirty, on-trend and the triangular cutout above the waist shows off the perfect amount of skin for a subtly-sexy edge.
Style tip: Pair with neutral wedges to cap off your look.
Bring a nautical spin to your work wardrobe with this navy pinstripe skirt and jacket. Perfectly polished and professional, this unique look is sure to leave your co-workers envious. Plus, the vertical stripes slim and elongate your figure, too—no workout required.
Style tip: Opt for a sleeveless white blouse to wear underneath the jacket so you can cool off and show your shoulders while on your lunch break.

This season, there’s no bigger swimsuit trend to hit the pool or beach in than a retro-inspired one. Blending the best of the old with the best of the new, the high-waisted briefs flatter the midsection while the bandeau top with tie-accent is perfectly in step with the look of right now—and it doesn’t hurt that the removable straps can help control those pesky tan lines.
Style tip: Add a pair of cat eye sunnies to complete the retro look.
