Navy + White Nautical Tops Under $70

Classic, chic, timeless.  What can I say about the navy and white nautical top that hasn't already been said?  Well, I can tell you that I've owned a blue + white striped top since I was able to pay for my own clothing (around 14 years old) and there are currently 3 options in my closet (yes, I counted.) This quintessential piece defies trends and that is why it will remain a staple in my wardrobe.
{via}
I've rounded up 8 affordable options from basic tee shirts to embellished tanks and interesting shapes.
1)Striped Pocket Top $12.80 via F21
2) BB Dakota Tatum Stripe Top $41.99 (on sale) via Piperlime
 5) Sea Level Top $64.99 via Modcloth
8) welcome aboard nautical sleeve top $31.99 via Ruche

Wondering how I would wear it?  See this outfit post for an example.  What do you think of the above options?  Is this style already a staple in your closet?


(apparently I'm a little stripe crazy this week.  It's not intentional, I promise)

I LOVE this look so much! That #3 tank is my favorite! I actually just bought a shirt from target, it's great, a lot like your #4 pick:

Mmm, nice, nautical stuff is so cute right now! I am packing for a Paris trip and I have ended up with quite a few stripey things in my suitcase... thanks for the outfit post, too!

jennyjen said...

Yay! More stripes! :) I think a navy & striped shirt is perfectly classic and wonderful with a pair of jeans or jean skirt! I don't actually own a striped shirt right now ... Adding to my shopping list!

Great selection. I love stripes, but tend to stay away from horizontal...not so great for me. But, #2 is fantastic! May just have to add that to my wardrobe. xx

I'm not usually a stripes gal, but I make an exception for the navy/white and navy/gray nautical stripes. It's fun and classy.

I love this look and I need to make it mine! I like #8 :)

i've become addicted to these tops - i've got a bunch of tees & picked up a cardi on vacation. i wear them all the time - with khakis, with denim, with cargos - and with ballet flats, heels or flip flops. you name it!

I am a stripe girl from way back, just like you. If you look in my closet all my patterned tops are striped. I live in stripes and even with stripes on my walls.I am a black and white stripe girl. It is a staple in my wardrobe. I just got rid of one of my striped shirts and have to replace it, I can not live without my stripes!! Kathysue
