Ocean-Inspired: The Must-Haves

Seaside or Not

It took it’s sweet time, but spring is finally here. Time to shove those chunky sweaters and bulky coats back to the inner recesses of your closet. Free your ankles from the tyranny of socks and break out your warm weather wardrobe.

This season, we’ve sought inspiration from breezy classic seaside style for our Portside Blue collection. We’re celebrating life by the ocean, embodied in our easy, carefree spring pieces. They’re ideal for sunny picnics in the park, strolls by the seaside and dinner al fresco.

Winter hibernation has officially come to an end, so press pause on your binge-watching queue, slip into a pair of contemporary cupsoles and suit up in navy chinos and a salt-washed sweatshirt, and get the heck outside.

Sun Washed Goodness

Blue skies and seas – everyone’s daydream, right? Take it to your wardrobe: wear the Exeter River Saltscrub Crew Sweatshirt and our Sargent Lake Sateen Chino Pant. Both are specially washed to mimic the weathering effect of salty air and the sunshine of summer, with a slight gradient look to each garment. So you can feel like you’re on vacation when in reality, you’re definitely not.

Sail-Ready Footwear

Disclaimer: we know these aren’t your average “boat shoes”. But, everyone needs a pair of unfussy, comfortable kicks, right? Our Amherst Canvas Oxfords are an ideal warm-weather style reminiscent of a classic canvas boat shoe. Crafted out of soft-washed canvas and our trademark leather, the durable recycled rubber outsole and SensorFlex™ comfort system make these your go-to shoe for all-day comfort. 

Kick back in our Adventure  Cupsole Chukkas made from lightweight materials and based on a classic skate shoe-inspired silhouette. No skateboard? No problem. These everyday chukkas can be your go-to shoe no matter what you’re doing in any weather, the rubber soles and waterproof premium nubuck protect you from the elements. 

Women's Seaside Style

Inevitably, life by the sea can be unpredictable, and for windy or rainy days you’ll want the Rosebrook Packable Waterproof Shell Jacket or Rosebrook Long Waterproof Parka. Both feature DryVent™ technology, which guarantees that the outer layer repels moisture and the inner layer seals you nice and dry in the garment for ultimate comfort, whatever you’re out and about doing.

Effortless Chic

Denim typically comes to mind when thinking about jackets for spring. For us, we fully embrace linen for spring and summer, which is why we love our Ludlow Mountain Linen Blazer. The fitted silhouette and cool cotton/linen mix mean it can go from work to happy hour in a beat. Pair it up with a T-shirt or sundress for warmer temps. You’ve found your new spring jacket. 

Think you can’t do the minimalist trend? Think again. Crafted from full grain leather and suede, we added a pop of color to the Sheafe Leather Suede Sandal to make your look a bit more interesting (aka fun). We always say: dress from the shoes up.
