Dana and I met while working together designing her wedding invitations. I always loved her desire to stand out and be different. It's no wonder she does so well in PR. She isn't afraid to be bold and make a unique statement for herself as well as the company she's representing. Lucky for us, she’s agreed to share her favorite fashion style tips. - CECI JOHNSON

Nautical-Inspired Fashion by Dana Schiller, Brooks Brothers

When Ceci approached me to do a nautical-inspired fashion story for summer, it was only natural that I keep with tradition, this time naming key looks based on the characters of one of my favorite television shows, The Love Boat.

For the Spring 2012 Brooks Brothers and Black Fleece collections, it's all about reinventing the basics. Both are inspired by the 1960s and ever-iconic American style. Warm weather is in the air and with it comes casual comfort and appreciation for days in the sun and nights under the stars. Get on board with a classic mix of nautical stripes and seersucker for your summer wardrobe.
