Ask Nautical by Nature: How to Style a Nautical Pattern Top

Reader Kiersten wrote to me about this New York & Company nautical top. Did I think it was tacky or too much?

Here's my response:
Hi Kiersten,
I don't think it's tacky at all! I actually had another reader send me a link to the matching dress (which appears to be sold out now) but I like the top more. I think the top would look GREAT with white pants for summer (for fun night events) or dressed down with white shorts. I also like how they have it styled with a black skirt (perfect for work). I think a patterned top is really fun and works best with sold colors and simple accessories/shoes.

Here's a polyvore set with five different looks:

One top, five ways

I think I like the white or black pants best. What do you think goes best with this top?


  1. I love it with the white shorts. But I am obsessed with white so ya know. LOL.

  2. I love this top! :) A punch of pattern goes a long way. I like it best with the white pants, second would be the black pants. I don't think the other suggestions work as well. Thanks for sharing. This would be a great piece to add to my wardrobe. :)

  3. I definitely love it with the white pants!

  4. I could also see it with a white skirt! Such a cute top.

  5. LOVING this with the white shorts!! I might have to order this! FUN!!

    p.s. I'm ready for SUMMER!!!!!

  6. I found that top and dress too! I love them, very classy!

  7. This is very cute with white pants or shorts! Looks really cool and breezy for summer, as well!
