Olive Oyl Royale (part I)

In 1919 when Olive Oyl first donned her gold bauble earrings, red sweater, yellow striped black skirt and brown boots (the prequel to Uggs), she probably never guessed nautical fashion for women could be so glamorous. Although, I’m sure today her heart would be throbbing (like mine) for the nautical looks that are coming this spring.

I must say that regardless of the seasonal “trend”, I always adore a classic nautical look. It really is a timeless style that has been worn throughout the ages, from Coco Chanel to Brigitte Bardot and Goldie Hawn to Gwen Stefani.

In the mail yesterday, I received the January 2010 issue of Elle magazine. The Elle Fashion First Look on pages 31 and 32 inspired me to write this post and share with you both looks from the magazine as well as some others that I’ve found. Here is a teaser of what is to come. Check back for more looks in my next post “Olive Oyl Royale (part II)”.
