A nautical theme is perfect for weekend style. We found two classy maxi dresses that can can rock a Sunday cruise or fashionably occupy an audience chair at the regatta.
Story Strapless Silk Maxi Dress, $298, Addison
Striped Plunge Surplice Maxi Dress, $138, Splendid
We love their skin baring style. In the summer heat, less is obviously more and these two dresses does it tastefully. The Addison dress is strapless but keeps its silhouette relaxed with its billowy bodice. A plunging neckline may be the highlight of the Splendid maxi dress, but its racer back style gives it a sporty rather than that too-sultry look.

Color is kept obviously nautical on both dresses, each with its version of deep, dark blue. The nautical stripe is used as a general theme on the cotton/modal Splendid maxi dress but updated with a fuchsia piping. Meanwhile, angled white chevrons is used sparingly on the silk maxi dress by Addison.

Simple accessories are best for these dresses. For the strapless maxi dress, you can add a simple necklace and perhaps a structured white clutch. The sporty style of the surplice maxi dress can be matched with a woven boho bag and a pair of trendy, flat white sandals.
These dresses are available on Nordstrom where shipping and returns are free.
