A thousand miles or more from any coast, and a mile above sea level, Denver is anything but maritime. Nevertheless, it’s hard to ignore –even from here– the marine influence that appeared in so many spring-summer collections this year including Armani, Chanel, Narciso Rodriguez, Prada and Versace. From multitudes of ocean blues, sea-horse, shell, starfish embellished jewelry and accessories, to the light, iridescent layers crafted by Karl Lagerfeld, the sea-inspired trend can translate easily to your own wardrobe, transport you to a Caribbean state-of-mind and transform you into a siren.

To channel your inner Ariel, choose from a palette that includes aqua, champagne, chiffon, colored gems, coral, green, metallic, pastels, pearls, sea creatures, sequins, shells and silk.
