Fleet Week is back after a one-year hiatus, and revelers are ready for Blue Angels shows, the boat parade, and lots of parties. Now comes the most important question: What should you wear while drinking staring at jet formations on your friend's rooftop? If you want to take your look for next weekend's festivities in a literal direction, we've rounded up nine nautical pieces that will add a splash of sea-faring fun. From the sunglasses that scream, "That's right. A naval aviator," to the Breton stripes that sailors stopped wearing around the time that Coco Chanel made stripes bougie, we've got you covered.
