We've been keeping a close eye on fashion blogs, runways, and big-name designers, and there's one thing that's abundantly clear: nautical fashion is back in a big way in 2013. Spring and nautical fashion naturally go hand-in-hand, so you can expect to see a veritable sea (no pun intended) of blue stripes, anchors, and boat shoes as people gear up for a yacht trip -- even though most people will probably never get anywhere near the water in their high-priced outfits. Kind of ironic, isn't it?
In any event, you can easily take advantage of this fashion trend with your own custom clothing designs. Follow these simple tips to give your group or business a fresh, oceanic theme.
Blue and White
Take a white article of clothing, throw in some navy blue, and bam! You've got yourself a trendy nautical outfit. It's really hard to go wrong with these two colors -- the bright white and dark blue naturally complement each other, and this dynamic duo has remained fashionable for decades. You definitely don't have to worry about running any risks with a blue and white custom clothing. These colors will still be in fashion years from now.

Coral, Aquamarine, Cerulean, and EmeraldBlue and white are certainly the most common nautical colors, but there's a huge range of color options. Stand apart with blue-green colors like emerald and cerulean. If you're prefer slightly warmer colors, you can always opt for coral. Image source: Lifestyle.inquirer.net
We have old-fashioned sailors to thank for the explosion of stripes in the fashion world. Naval sailors would wear blue uniforms with white stripes, and somehow that translated into the world of brand-name fashion. If you decide to incorporate stripes into your custom outfits, keep in mind that nautical fashion almost always goes with horizontal stripes.
