Before Summer goes, I want to give a little shout-out to a new Summer staple that I'm swooning over: Nantucket Reds. Ever hear of them? They are faded red (but not pink) shorts, pants, skirts and shorts supposedly made famous on the island of Nantucket. I just like the color - I like it so much that I ordered a skirt from a little shop in Nantucket, which hopefully is en route as we speak. I've noticed a few people wearing them this Summer, and just recently I saw a woman walking to the bus, and she was wearing a Nantucket Red skirt, light chambray top, brown leather belt and wedges. I am stealing that outfit and will post here when I do! In the meantime, here is a round up of some of my favorite looks with Nantucket Reds, which are super preppy.
I love this first look. It's unapologetically nautical and I cannot stand how cute those Sperry wedges are. I love the color combo.
This outfit, to me, is Annie Hall meets Nantucket Reds. It's more "city" than I have ever seen the Reds worn. I love how unexpected it is. I don't think that I, personally, could pull it off, but I love the way it looks on her.

I like the casualness of this outfit. It goes to show that you do not need a collared or pretty shirt to make Nantucket Reds work.
OK, how adorable is this outfit? This seems to be similar to the shirt I want to pair with my skirt, though I'd roll up my sleeves. I love how she has added that pop of color in the belt. Super duper cute.

Finally, back to the skirt! I adore the way she styled this outfit - from the navy top to the white belt to those perfect preppy shoes.

And I would be remiss if I posted about Nantucket Reds and didn't show how the men wear them. I hear they're a staple at Cape Cod weddings, which makes sense. I love the way this color looks on men.
And there you go! My own round-up (much like my seersucker post from last Summer) on what made me swoon this Summer. What do you think? Is this your style?
