Nautical looks and summer go together like sunscreen and beaches. No matter your style, there’s a good chance you own at least one–or 20–nautical striped tops and wear them in heavy rotation. But what do you do when the stripes get boring? This summer, you turn to anchors. While this print often shows up on kids’ clothing, designers have found ways to keep it age-appropriate for moms this year by exaggerating the print–oversize and miniature–and by placing them on looks that don’t scream ‘sailor suit’. And if you still can’t commit to wearing an anchor, go with a summery, timeless tote or accessory.
