How to incorporate nautical into Fall and Winter (part 3)

Part 1 here (navy and brown) and part 2 here (pinstripes)

3. Corduroy critters! Corduroy is synonymous with fall and winter. Just add nautical critters!

Castaway Clothing has three styles of corduroy to choose from: Beachcomber Corduroy Skirt, Beachcomber Corduroy Jean Cut Pants and Beachcomber Corduroy Bootcut Pants. Choose your piece and then choose a critter! The critters below link back to the skirt.

Arctic Blue Crab:

Chocolate Lobster:

Nantucket Red Whale:

I actually wore my Vineyard Vines corduroy critter skirt to the store opening party last week (I'll be posting about it tomorrow).

I'm not seeing any critter cords at Lilly Pulitzer, J.Crew or Vineyard Vines this year :(

Are you a fan of critter clothing?


  1. Love Love Love The Skirt!!! It's precious! Darling critters!

  2. I couldn't agree more, critters are the perfect way to transition nautical into fall!

  3. I need a good pair of critter cords! I tried on a similar VV skirt a while back, but I wasn't crazy about the colors (brown with pink critter).

  4. I SO commiserate with you. I have all of my critter clothing and it is tucked away safely in my closet - no donating for me. I have tons of Lilly with whales, crabs, parrots, palm trees, lobsters, etc. Even vintage LP critter whale loafers in green corduroy! LOL My J Crew lobsters, martinis, lizards, dogs, anchors, tropical drinks, whales, etc. and VV shrimp, shells, etc. I love them and am so sad the trend has started to wane. I still wear them with pride and they never cease to get a comment or at best... a long stare. I LOVE it! :-) Great post! Long live the CRITTERS! :-)
