A pair of perfect navy blue sailor pants miraculously made their way into my life recently and have inspired me to bring out my inner sailor-ette, full force. The nautical trend has long been a part of fashion history — hello, Jean Paul Gaultier — but these perfect pants make me want to come sail away, and Shopbop's nautical selection is allowing me to do just that. Won't you join me on my proverbial ship by incorporating anchors, stripes (a la 3.1 Phillip Lim's resort line, left), and brass buttons into your closet? Is that an "aye aye Fab" I hear?!
Rachel Bilson has been looking beyond simple lately, but something about her understated ensembles suit her. Like Victoria Beckham, she's embracing the match-your-handbag-color-to-your-dress look. Here, Rachel is wearing a silky navy blue dress with Zac Posen's navy blue Abbey satchel. I thought her outfit needed a little somethin' somethin' so I gave her some jewels. I hope she doesn't mind!
