Guess Renae Dress

Here on the left coast it feels as though spring has sprung...and it's sprinting in the opposite direction back east. I have too many dresses and skirts and not enough warm weather to wear them in, so I'm not going to rush out and buy the Renae dress by Guess ($101.42 - subject to change as the exchange rate fluctuates) even though I think it's one of the cutest examples of the nautical trend that I've seen to date. The red and navy stripes make a bold sailor girl statement and inspire fantasies of hanging out with the yachting crowd.

With a dress so decidedly nautical, I would go for non-nautical accessories to keep things interesting, not costumey:

Purse options
  • A buttery soft brown leather bag

  • A metallic tote

  • A Chinese embroidered red and white silk purse

Shoe options
  • Gladiator sandals

  • Gold or silver ballet flats

  • Cork wedges

Jewelry options
  • Bangles or cuff bracelets

  • Hammered gold or silver disc earrings

  • Oversized hoops
